ID documents for Haitian residents in DR

The Embassy of Haiti has ready around 11,000 documents for Haitians that had requested identity papers from Haiti to regularize their status as part of the Dominican Republic National Status Legalization Plan (PNRE) that began in 2014.

The Dominican government has given extensions to Haitians who have not been able to complete the process due to delays on behalf of the Haitian government. Most people in Haiti do not have identity documents, which creates a major problem for the Dominican Republic when these cross the border looking for work.

The delivery of the documents began yesterday and is part of the Program for Identification and Documentation of Haitian Immigrants (PIDIH) of the Embassy of Haiti. These documents had been requested in 2014.

It is estimated that around 200,000 Haitians have requested documentation from Haiti to regularize their status.
