Marrying a Dominican

Recommended Posts

My fiance (soon to be husband) is born, raised and currently living in the Dominican Republic. We met April 18th 2008 while I was on vacation and he was taking a long weekend off to relax in the hotel I was staying in...got engaged September 26th 2009 and getting married February 27th 2010 in Riu Bachata, Puerto Plata.

The whole process of "proving" our relationship is a bit of a downer but it's just something that must be done in order to be together.

I can totally relate to having to prove your relationship. My fiance is not Dominican but is a Dominican permanent resident and has been living and working in DR; we met almost 4 years ago while we were both on vacation with friends and never imagined that just a few short years later we would be engaged!

Just found this thread, but hope it can update now..

 

FI and I are both Dominican, he was born in DR and has been living in NY since he was 10. I was born and raised here, but my family is Dominican.

 

This is the main reason we decided on Punta Cana and not Mexico, so our family that lives in the DR can go.

Welcome Luciel! I just sent our application away on March 4th for his permanent resident visa to come to Canada. Haven't heard anything back from them as to whether they've started the process or not though sad.gif

3 of my cousins married woman from the DR and I know it takes quite a while for the whole process, but I believe they were here about a year after the wedding.

I know this doesn't help much and I know it kind of sucks but hopefully everything will be done soon.

Ya, ours will be about a year after the wedding as well (hopefully!). Doesn't help that my stupid resort took 3 months after the certificate was issued to MAIL IT TO ME! I could have had it the first 2 weeks in December, instead I got it March 4th!

 

I'm praying that we don't have any problems during the process. Fingers crossed!

Congrats! When was your wedding? What part of the Dominican is your husband from? Will you be moving there or him to Canada?
