I am a 36 year old Canadian woman and I am just at the beginning of starting to look into what I need to do in order to relocate to the Dominican Republic (Puerto Plata). I have been seriously considering this for a few years but I believe I am at the point in my life now, to put that into action. I have visited the Dominican 4 times over the last 4-5 years and actually just got back from yet another 2 weeks there (all inclusive resorts only).
I would very much appreciate any help with pointing me in the right directions to figure out exactly what I need, if its feasible and where to find the information. Examples of what I need to know:
1) how long can I stay there if I am going there to get my feet wet and try to see how living there is? What kind of paperwork, visas do I need after 30days of Tourist Visa is over? How do I extend my stay ? is that even possible?
2) What is the best way to get a job there? Would teaching english be a viable option at all? I am starting to learn Spanish asap.
Just to clarify: I am single and not going there because I met anyone. This is just my dream and looking to see if I could make that happen!
What are my chances of making this come true on my own? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
