Birth certificate legalization no longer necessary
The Central Electoral Board (JCE), which is in charge of the civil registry in the Dominican Republic, has confirmed that citizens will soon no longer need to legalize civil registry documents. The JCE reports that as of tomorrow, Tuesday, 16 February 2016, civil registry documents no longer need to be legalized and can be requested at any civil registry office nationwide. In the past, the specific office where the documents were inscribed was the only office that could issue the documents.
