Expat Files – 01.15.17

#1- Residency and Passport rules and procedures in the Dominican Republic: Yes, the regs and time-frames been changed again in the DR and supposedly “streamlined” for the umpteenth time- though few govt sites have been updated to reflect the changes. Even officials don’t really seems to know the real dope on what’s going on. We’ll see…

#2- The disadvantages of living on a Latin American island or beachfront property.

#3- A racist and classist lesson: The massive illegal immigration of Haitians into the Dominican Republic is a major problem. On the other hand, its a microcosm of what’s happening in the USA and Mexico right now.

#4- Latins will go to great lengths to impress themselves and others. Copying gringos is all the rage- often (as we see it) to the point of ridiculousness.

#5-Use the new “Podcast by Phone” feature. Listen to the last FIVE Expat Files programs over the phone by dialing: 1-701-719-0893
