Haiti - FLASH : Bad news, the cost of Dominican VISA increases by more than 50%
Friday the Haitians received with surprise and anger the bad news of the increase by the Dominican Republic of more than 50% of the price of VISA entry to the neighboring territory.

From now, the Multiple one-year Visa (the most sought after by Haitians) already very expensive which cost 230 US dollars, now costs $350 that's $120 more. If you apply for an Emergency Visa, the cost is increased by $30, for a total of $380. As a comparison, a 5-year US VISA only costs $160.

Recall that this same Friday an imposing delegation of Haitian parliamentarians were received by the President Domincain Danilo Medina where was mentioned among other subject, the rumor of a possible increase of this visa http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-23468-haiti-dr-twenty-haitian-parliamentarians-meet-president-danilo-medina.html

Many Haitians accustomed to cross the border to the neighboring Republic, have denounced on a radio of the capital this important surprise rise and announced for Monday, a peaceful demonstration at the border to force, they say, the Dominican government to reconsider their decision.

An event that according to the opinion of more than one, has no chance to bend the Dominican authorities who can, as much and as often as they want, increase the cost of its Visas, seeking without openly admitting, to dissuade or slow down the massive entry of Haitians into their territory.
