28 October is deadline for Haitian naturalization
The Presidency and the Ministry of Interior and Police are reminding potential applicants that 28 October is the deadline established in Naturalization Law 169-14 for registration of children of undocumented Haitians born in the Dominican Republic before 18 April 2007. The law established a free fast-tracked process for naturalization but those interested needed to apply for registration in the Foreign Birth Book (Libro de Nacimientos Extranjeros) by that date, a first step in the legalization process.
Applicants need to present a certificate of birth in a Dominican hospital, a sworn statement before a notary public by the person who assisted in the birth, a sworn statement by seven Dominican witnesses or sworn statements by Dominican relatives witnesses of the birth. After submitting the document, applicants have 30 days to complete the documentation.
Law 169-14 established a special procedure for people who had been irregularly registered in the Civil Registry to apply for Dominican nationality.
