Don’t travel to Haiti, Dominican official warns

Santo Domingo.- The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MIREX) reiterated the suggestion made to Dominicans since October 2021, about refraining from traveling to Haiti except for essential reasons.

Likewise, the agency reported this Monday that it received the relatives of the Dominican citizen who was driving the Metro bus that was presumed to have been kidnapped in Haiti and in which people of Turkish and Haitian nationality were on board.

Jatzel Román, Deputy Minister for Consular and Immigration Affairs, shared with the family the steps to follow in order to find a solution to the situation.

He said the Dominican State, through the dependencies related to the issue, is in communication with the Haitian authorities for the effective follow-up of the case.

During the meeting held at the MIREX headquarters, a single and direct contact was established between the institution through its Directorate for the Protection of Nationals and the family members, in order to manage communication effectively.

It is time to execute a complete and clean divorce from that failed state. Do not surrender your sovereignty for economical convenience (cheap labor and market). They will drag you down the same failure hole they are in. You have no responsibility for them and you can not control them!

Just remember who gave you your independence. That failed state as you call it, is paying the price of liberation for most of Latin America.
Look in the mirror and tell me your race than look at your country that you think is so much better and tell me who actually owns it. Think colonialism.

Yeah denial as always been the case with the DR.

What the Dominican authorities have to do is, closed its frontier with Haiti permanently, the Dominican embassy and consulate and militarized it, so not just one Haitian could crossed, but most importantly is to deport back to Haiti an estimated 99.9 of Haitian now residents illegally on our mother land the Dominican Republic.

How about banning all travels to Dominican Republic, as this country corrupted as hell, full of drugs and can’t control it so as the result innocent people being illegally detained and accused for what have not done. HOW ABOUT THAT! They already lost tourists from Russia, let’s see when Americans stop coming here what this jungle will turned into. Bull crap! Clean your own mess and start acting like a civil county!
