Residency requirement for DR?

Recommended Posts

We are strongly leaning towards getting married in DR (and Dreams Punta Cana is one of our top candidates), one reason being because I had been reading they do not have a residency requirement.

However on the Dreams website it says you must be in DR 3 full days prior to being married? I'm confused, is that outdated info?

 

Also do any of you ladies have anything that details what exactly is included in the 3 different dinner packages (silver, gold, platinum)?

You do have to be in the DR THREE days before you have a legal wedding ceremony. If you are planning a symbolic ceremony, it doesn't apply. Hope that helps!

I thought the Dominican did NOT have the 3 day minimum? I know the Majestic doesn't work that way. Mexico does have a 3 day requirement.

 

Maybe the resort just PREFERS 3 days so that it allows you time to prepare?

The DR no longer has a residency requirement. I know because I studied this extensively when we were going to get married there. However, different resorts may have different requirements so that paperwork, etc. can be processed. Hope everything works out!

We are arriving on the 16th and getting married on the 18th and I will have all the documents already translated and legalized. They said it was fine.

Are you getting married at Dreams Punta Cana?

I emailed the WC at DPC and Yessica replied:

"Iâ€m sorry to inform you that is a legal requirement to be in D.R three days in advance. We also use that requirement to organize everything. Please find attached the requirements to get legally married in D.R."

But EVERYWHERE else I look I'm seeing that there is no LEGAL requirement to be there 3 days prior. If it's a resort requirement fine but TELL ME that.

We're getting married at Catalonia Royal. When I first emailed WC, she said it was three days, but I told her I would have the paperwork ready she said it was fine. I believe it may be a resort requirement, just to ensure that all documents are ready for the wedding. You might want to call the Dominican Embassy to see what they say.

We are getting married in Punta Cana at Ocean Sands and our coordinator said it's not necessary as long as I've forwarded all of the paperwork to her in advance. We arrive Saturday and are getting married on Monday.

It is not a legal requirement to be there 3 days prior. I talked with a couple different resorts and they all said somthing different. We also are getting married at Ocean Blue and the WC there said each hotel puts their own requirements on it and that they don't have a preference only as long as you get your paper work there ahead of time like SonyaR says. I would call the resort and talk to the WC personally and ask her, then have her send it to you in email.

    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Amazon it is a paradise for shopping. I always buy from this platform, especially when I look for a present. I've already set up Amazon Pro, for advanced buyers, and for free shipping, lol. In fact, I bought a lot of different products here. I like to make beautiful gifts, and packaging means a lot to me. I usually chose all the parts of the gift and then packed them at home by myself. But recently, at the wedding of my friend, I did not have time at all and I decided to look for a service that can help me. As a result, I came across a good website where you can buy different gift baskets. jetgiftbaskets.com I bought her a Wedding Wishes gift basket, and she was very happy. This service has excellent service, as good as amazon has.
