SANTO DOMINGO.- The country migratory regulation in effect since October 2011 will expire June 1, for which the productive sectors will have to start the process to stabilize and legalize their foreign personnel.
Immigration Agency director Jose Ricardo Taveras said two companies have already been issued the waiver on the migratory regulation and works with 500 workers who’ll enter the country with that legal status and with social security, to be paid together with their employers.
The official’s statement comes in response to the agro sector’s relentless reluctance to comply with the migratory regulation, widely expected to affect national production staring June.
Taveras said all parties must share the cost of implementing the migratory regulation once the term expired in June, since the law took effect immediately. "The application of the migratory regulation has its costs, since the Foreign Relations Ministry has its fees to issue a visa and that’s like that worldwide."
