Welcome to the Immigrant Visa Section of the Embassy of the United States in Santo Domingo. We provide services to citizens and residents of the Dominican Republic who wish to immigrate to the United States.
As a rule, foreign citizen wishes to immigrate to the United States, must be sponsored by a family member who is a citizen of the United States or a lawful permanent resident, or a prospective employer in the United States. Before applying for an immigrant visa, you must have an approved petition.
The sponsor should initiate the process by filing a petition on behalf of a foreigner in the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). You can view our catalog of visa categories to learn more about different types of immigrant visas, including the Diversity Visa program. Then follow the instructions on the Immigrant Visa Application Process or Diversity Visa Process to begin your application.
After USCIS approves your petition and you complete the initial process at the National Visa Center (NVC), or if you were selected in the Diversity Visa Lottery and completed the process at the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC), review the instructions you received from NVC or KCC along with the information provided on this website, it will help you in the next steps.
