My husband will be applying for a passport for the first time next week as we wait for the NOA2. (I filed a petition for him back at the end of July/beginning on August). We are a bit confused as too how we pay for the passport. We are seeing that he has to pay it at BanReservas first and then show proof of payment. Also, we are going to pay the extra mil pesos to expedite it and get it the same day to save us trips. Can someone please clarify this BanReservas thing? Hopefully my question in clear, but if not kindly ask away.

 

This is the link where I got my info from: https://www.pasaportes.gob.do/index.php/servicios-s/solicitudes-nuevas/item/233-solicitud-de-pasaporte-para-adultos-dominicanos-por-nacimiento

 

Please and thank you.

Thank you! I really appreciate it. I apologize for not replying sooner as I was away all of last week visiting my husband. Thanks to your advice we were able to go to Huacalito which had a banreservas right in front of it. We got there around 9:30 am. We would have gotten there sooner but we needed to go to JCE to get a new birth certificate. Thanks to you we went straight into the banreservas and paid the vip price, went into the office. we were there for only about 20 minutes applying and such. They told us to come back in three hours to pick up the passport. Very simple process and one step less for us now.

 

I viewed your timeline and saw that you have been approved and everything. so another question i have is: once they approve the visa at the interview, how soon after the approval is the visa ready? also, can i be picked up at the embassy at any time or does it HAVE to be mailed?

 

Thank you!

Good that he got his passport, 

Once is approved, each case is diferent, some get the passport 3 days after interviw, other a week, others a months etc, all depend from each case.

You pick up the passport at any location of Mailboxes, mailboxes is the company that embassy use to mail passport.

You choice the location near you.

To choice the location he need create a profil at ustraveldocs.do , when his case be approved, in that profil he choice the fingersprints date and passport pick up location.

Thank you. & I wonder what would hold up receiving the visa for more than a week? I'm hoping that I can come back to the USA with my husband right after the interview to avoid multiple trips to D.R. and save some money.

Last question hopefully: while you were waiting to receive the visa, were you informed at any point that everything was running smoothly or were you informed that you'd get it in a month. I think I would worry my self sick if I waited a month without any updates. Kindly inform. Thank you!

They never say how long will take the visa.

On the interview they say same answer to everybody: you will get your passport in two weeks or if we need something from you we let you know by email.

All you can do is check the status on ceac check visa status.

If says issued means that the visa is printed. Then you check at ustraveldocs and see if your passport is ready for pick up
