According to a press release by the Foreign Ministry, that institution issued an open call to local and international companies in order for them to submit proposals to operate consular services such as visa applications and passport renewal.

This process seeks to reduce waiting times, improve communication channels and transfer incomes received.

This project will be initially implemented in Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Boston, Caracas, Beijing and Santiago de Chile, and will be extended to other cities depending on results.

Media reported that after successful experiences in countries such as Salvador, Italy, Guatemala and Spain, the Dominican government is seeking to significantly change the way in which these services are provided.

The Dominican Republic has currently 47 consulates and 30 consular sections in 30 embassies, which provide services to a diaspora of nearly 2.5 million people, in addition to visa applications by foreigners, who move to this country mainly for working reasons.
