DR Passport Renewal

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband's Dominican passport expires in October 2015. His US 1-130 Visa is printed in it.

According to the Chicago DR Consulate website this can be done via mail.

However, must we wait until the passport expires to renew it?

AND

Must we provide a birth certificate printed within 6 months of renewing the passport? I really do not want to visit the DR again any time soon, especially just for a birth certificate!

Thanks!

I'm not sure about mail, you would have to contact them directly to find out. You're in Pennsylvania, I think you're closest consulate may be in NY. According to the link I will post below, he needs an acta de nacimiento legalizada and his cedula.

He definitely doesn't have to go to DR to get a birth certificate, he can get one from the consulate and they should be able to legalize it. I know the consulate here in NYC has the JCE and you can get birth, marriage, divorce records. Last time I heard though they were closed so you would want to contact them to see if they are still open.

In the event that he is unable to get it from the consulate, he still doesn't have to go to DR. Records in the DR are public and basically anyone can request them. When I needed my birth certificate for my citizenship, I gave my aunt the libro, folio, and acta no and the oficialia where I was registered and she sent my cousin to get it for me and had it shipped. I sent her the money via La Nacional so that she could get the certificate and ship it back.

Again you want to find out with the consulate what they need and whether you are able to obtain these docs in the US or have to have someone in DR send them to you. Also I think the price is $135 for same day passport and I'm not sure if $60 for 3 day pickup. Good luck.

Sorry I can not answer you question, but I am curious about the birth certificate not being in his possession right now. When you provided the birth certificate to the consulate, did they keep it? I just want to ensure that if that is the case, when my fiancé provides his copy for the consulate, that he requests another to bring with him here to the U.S.

Or or this just a situation for those filing the I-130?

Thanks

We received the copies back from the consulate; however these copies were obtained in April 2014. It appears that we will need a "new" copy when it is time to renew his passport.

Ok thanks so much for the info. So after six months have passed, one needs to supply another copy, correct?

So sorry for all the questions, it's just that when we get to the point where you currently are, in this process, I would like to already be informed and prepared.

Thanks in advance.
