14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi this question is for anyone in the dominican republic who has been through the K1 visa process. Is it true that if the beneficiary has unpaid debts lets say to the phone or cable company, the Dominican government can stop her from traveling using her k1 visa? Please help

Yes they can if the company has placed a impedment (?) de salida. I have only heard of this happening to one person and they were an expat that is a resident of the DR and the debt was owed to a hospital. So yes they do it. Is it likely she has that attatched to her name. Probably not.

As resse1 state unless they put a impedment de salida then yes she will have problems traveling, In most case this is had if she gets whats called "sometido" "submitted by the owner or the company she owns to. In some care it rarely happens but can more then likely happen. You just never know with DR.

:yes: I don't see the cable or phone company doing this, now that is not to say they can't just that it is highly unlikely.

Very true.... I think this would happen more quicker if it was child support.. I personally wouldn't pay much mind to it...

Not even child support as keeping track if it is being paid is solely up to the mother, it would also be up to her to file the paper work to have it done. I am thinking more along the lines of a hospital bill or a debt owed to the goverment.

It is not a good idea to leave unpaid debts behind, especially if you plan on traveling back and forth between the U.S. and the D.R. You can think all is forgotten, and then when you get to security at the airport they check your passport and you have a "problem". Also when they run security checks on you for immigration purposes they also run credit checks.

Right the person has to file the supporting documents, for it to take charge, But I personally doubt it will effect the traveling, but again you never know with DR. It make more sense that you wouldn't want to leave your home country with outstanding debit as that will only harm you at the end of the day, if you try to request for credit cards or personal loan. So its a matter of messing you own credit cause its something that will stay in your records.
