In light of the changes that have come about with the new immigration regulation, some have sought to establish citizenship in the Dominican Republic. However, the changes in the regulation affect the time frame that makes citizenship possible. In order to qualify for citizenship the foreign national must meet one of the following qualifications or categories:
Foreign nationals who hold permanent residence status for two consecutive years qualify for naturalization. The process must be initiated 6-8 months prior to the expiration date that appears on the residence card. Foreign nationals must speak and read Spanish. Applicants under this category must take the Dominican Nationality Test.
Married to a Dominican Citizen
In the event the foreign national is male, he must have residence status for six months prior to applying for citizenship. He must also be married for a minimum of six months. Those who apply under this category do not require the Dominican Nationality Test.
Child of Dominican Citizens
In order to apply under this category the birth certificate of the Dominican parent must be provided. Applicants under this category do not require the Dominican Nationality Test.
