Happy Holidays on behalf of the Consular Section of U.S. Embassy Santo Domingo
Ask The Consul
December 25, 2023

The Dominican Republic and the United States share a strong bond. Nearly 300,000 U.S. citizens live in the Dominican Republic, more than two million Dominicans live in the United States, and almost three million U.S. travelers visit the Dominican Republic every year.

Our highest priority is to protect and support our U.S. citizen community. Our Consular team has been hard at work helping U.S. citizens renew their passports in time for holiday travel. 

We also continue to make every effort to process visas for many loved ones who are waiting to see friends and family in the United States. During this festive season, we wish everyone a happy holiday and send our very best wishes for a healthy, safe, and prosperous new year.
