exit fee

Hi, My wife and I are planning to spend 2months in the DR this time around. Last time around we spent 1mth+1day and were charged a fee to leave the country. I think the fellow at the airport said that fee would cover us for upto 6months even though we were just 1 day past the 30. for the 2months does anyone know what the exit fee is per person? should we have pesos or US$ for that? thx

Investor Residency Status

Hi, Understanding there are various forms of residency I've been reading a little about the investor residency status vs. retiree for example. I recall seeing that if you invest min $200K USD in the DR you can get this status and that the investment does not need to be in real estate or business...it can be a term deposit (i.e. CD at a bank - 30/60/90) or other short term paper. I've also read that if you plan on living there it might be best to have the interest paid in Dom Pesos. So...question is...for two people (my wife and I) to obtain this type of residency how much USD$ would we have to invest in short-term paper/CDs in order to qualify? Ex. if we "bought" $250K worth of short term paper that is about $10M Dom Pesos...if the rate is 8%/month that means about $67K Dom Pesos/month (and I understand that to be tax free?)...$67K Peso/mth = about $1600USD...is that enough? Thanks

Thanks Bob...we will take your advice and go metro...if i read this correctly .metroserviciosturisticos.com/rutas_horarios.html Bus leaves 820, 1020, etc from Sosua? Assume we just show up at the Texaco station (30mins before...would that be enough time?) And we just buy tickets at that time? Thanks

GordandNancy ha respondido en el hilo car rental en el foro Dominican Republic

Thanks Bob. How close are they to the Caribe bus station? Reason I ask is that we are planning on taking a trip to Santa Domingo and could pickup the car when we get back from there. Also...for the Caribe bus ride to Santo Domingo I believe we just show up and buy our tickets there...330 pesos/pp I think. Where is the Caribe bus station in Sosua? Thanks
