Foreign residents in the Dominican Republic whose cédulas (ID cards) have expired since 1998 have been granted another grace period from 1st July – 31st December 2012 to renew their cédulas without having to pay the regular fees. Renewals during this period will have a total cost of RD$3,000.


The JCE (Central Electoral Board) renewals office for foreign residents is on Avenida Luperon, about one block south of Plaza de la Bandera in Santo Domingo. The process is usually very swift and efficient.

Note that in order to renew your cédula, your residency must be up to date.
