Help from my Dominican Friends

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am suppose to be flying from JFK Airport in New York to Santiago in the Dominican Republic on Tuesday. I am not sure if that is going to happen with Hurricane Sandy on the way. Here is my question. Does the marriage certificate need to have a special stamp that you can only get in the capital Santo Domingo? Is it only the marriage certificate or does the birth certificate also need this stamp?Do any other documents need a special stamp? I was told that the BC and MC we received in Santiago are fine. Now I am being told that we need this special stamp from Santo Domingo. If we do need it how much does it cost? Thank you for your help. The last thing I want is to receive an RFE.

I don't think that your fly will be cancelled cause I just got back from Santo Domingo while the storm was hitting now as far as BC I know it need a stamp. Don't think it cost much cause I had to pay for two BC with stamps and I paid 25.00 for both BC....

A little more information. The MC says "ACTA INEXTENSA" , has a blue stamp, a raised seal, and on the back has a white bar coded sticker that says "La Firma estampada en este documento ha sido certificada por la Oficina Central del Estado Civil. 17/06/2011 12:44:15 p.m." The BC says "ACTA INEXTENSA", has a blue stamp saying "OFICIALIA DEL ESTADO CIVIL DE LA 3RA. CIRC. DE SANTIAGO", a raised seal, and a white bar code on the back with one of those scan squares on the sticker. One final question. Does the police certificate expire? If it does how long is it good for? Mine says 02/07/2012. I just got my NOA 2 on 10/24/12. Once again, Thanks guys!

Your marriage certificate was legalized. That is the stamp on the back that says...la firma estampada..etc etc..

You do not need to go to Santo Domingo because it was already done in Santiago. Also the BC has to be legalized and that as well can be done in Santiago.

Hope I was able to help : )

God Bless
