New offices to be opened for the Normalization Plan
SANTO DOMINGO. The government foresees opening this week more offices to receive the foreigners that want to register in the National Normalization Plan. These offices will be added to the 14 already operationg. Samir Santos, the director of the Plan, told Diario Libre that the location of the new offices will be released today.
On the web page of the Ministry of Interior and Police (www.mip.gob.do) they put up a banner that reports how many persons have visited and have registered in the Normalization Plan.
Until last Firday, which ended the third week of the Plan which began on 2 June, they had attended 54.020 visitors and they had registered 10, 387 foreigners.
The Plan for the Normalization of Foreigners began in the National District and in 12 governors’ offices.
During the first days the attendance was minimal in some provinces, but later on, the foreigners, principally Haitians, began to come in massively. The principle complaint has been the lack of documents and the slowness of the process.
The Dominican government has appealed to the Haitian authorities to assist in the emission of documents that their nationals should hand in to be legalized. The Plan has earned the respect of institutions such as the Network of the Jacques Viau Dominican-Haitian Meeting and the International Immigration Organization.
The Ministry of the Interior and Police also have decided on the installation of mobile units in different strategic points in order to go forward in the recruitment of more registrations, which will last for a yearю
