Dominican Republic issues extension stamps to eligible individuals in lieu of new passports

Effective January 16, the Dominican authorities began issuing extension stamps in lieu of new passports to eligible applicants. This measure is in place until further notice. Prior to the expiry of their extension stamps, applicants must apply for and obtain new passports from the General Passport Directorate. Fast-track passport processing is suspended until further notice. However, applicants who have a demonstrable urgent need to travel may be issued extension stamps or new passports on an expedited basis at the discretion of the authorities.
