Available. A certificate, called a "Certificate of No Judicial Records" (Certificado de No Antecendentes Judiciales), is obtainable by both Dominicans and non-Dominicans 18 years or older who permanently reside in or have resided in the Dominican Republic. Interested parties must apply in person at any office of the Prosecutor General (Procuradora Fiscal) throughout the country. They must present a Dominican national identification card (cedula), 2 passport-sized photographs and the fee in cash (330 Dominican pesos as of April 2007). A photocopy of both sides of the Dominican national identification card is also required. The certificate is usually ready the same day and is handed directly to the interested party for presentation during the visa interview.
The format of issued certificates varies as of April 2007; however, post expects greater consistency to be implemented in the coming months. The information on the certificate can be verified by contacting the Fraud Prevention Unit at Embassy Santo Domingo.
