The Dominican Government began the implementation of the Plan for the Normalization of the migratory status of the Venezuelan population, for those who entered between January 2014 and March 2020.
According to data from the General Directorate of Migration (DGM), more than 115.000 Venezuelans reside on the island, most of them irregularly.
From this Monday, Venezuelan immigrants in Dominican territory can go to an information center to start their regularization process.
The Ministry of the Interior and Police of the Dominican Republic announced on Friday that it issued a resolution that normalizes the irregular migratory situation of Venezuelans in Dominican territory within the category of non-residents.
Those who have a tourist visa and remain in the Dominican territory beyond the authorized validity, may be beneficiaries of an extension of stay, according to the measure.
