In a meeting of the Migration Council headed by president, Luis Abinader, held yesterday, a period of three months was given to businessmen and people with foreigners hired irregularly, to put them in order, otherwise they will be sanctioned with fines which range from 5 to 30 times the minimum wage.

Minister of Interior and Police officer, Jesús Vásquez, explained that once the deadline has expired, all companies or employers, requiring labor services of foreigners, must hire them in accordance with the legal parameters established in the country’s immigration and labor regulations.

He warned that the State will take all measures in compliance with the Law, to avoid the entry into the country of foreigners representing an unreasonable burden on public finances, including women with proven pregnancy of or after six months.

‘The regulation and control of the flow of people entering and leaving the territory of the Dominican Republic is an inalienable right of the Dominican State, but for many years the exercise of this right has been partial or null, affecting national interests and our sovereignty’, he added.

Finally, he stated that the current administration has a clear and firm position on the best way to handle this persistent problem: ‘the only possible solution is compliance with the national legal system on immigration matters’.
