Can Dominican citizens travel to the US now?
Dominicans can now travel to the United States for tourism and business. Previously, there were no restrictions on Dominican citizens entering the US. But there are now limitations on Dominican citizens entering the US for tourism and business. There is a slight difference between these two types of travel. These restrictions do not apply to Dominicans entering the US on student visas. However, there are still restrictions for Dominicans entering the US on tourist visas. Any Dominican citizen seeking a tourist visa must enter the US from Canada, Mexico, or another non-US territory. There are also restrictions on any Dominican citizen applying for employment in the US. Any Dominican citizen applying for employment must enter the US from Canada, Mexico, or another non-US territory. If you are planning on traveling to the US, make sure to check the current restrictions before traveling.
There are currently two ways to visit the United States with your Dominican Citizenship, through a Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) or the Diversity Visa Program (DV Program). If you’re under 18, you cannot apply for TTP. TTP allows you to travel to the U.S. with your parents or legal guardians at no cost. You have to apply through a Trusted Traveler Office. You can apply online or in person at most U.S. embassies. The only requirements are that you must be under 18 and have an original, unexpired passport and a valid, unexpired Form I-20.
Need I say more?
Simply put, we are not going to open our border. Yes, you heard that correctly. The United States has built up walls on their southern border to keep out foreigners who they believe are not lawfully allowed to enter their country. They are also deporting millions of immigrants to their home countries. Despite what President Trump and his supporters want you to believe, we are not going to open our border, at least not to Dominicans.
