To put an end to the uncertainties and speculations, the Dominican Ministry of Foreign Affairs has clarified the scope of this decision : "Haitian students currently pursuing university degrees in the Dominican Republic are not affected by the government measure which indefinitely suspends the special visa program for Haitian students."
