Provisional passport or route letter
The issuance of a provisional passport or route letter is issued by the Consulate of the Dominican Republic in exceptional cases to all Dominican citizens who do not have a valid passport and need to travel to the Dominican Republic. This document is issued for a validity of 30 days only and exclusively to return to the Dominican Republic. In order to be able to return to the country where the provisional passport was granted, the Dominican citizen must obtain the passport in Dominican territory.
Every Dominican citizen has the right to request a provisional passport or route letter from the consular offices of the Dominican Republic.
Submit to the Dominican consular office that corresponds to the following documentation and requirements:

The amount to be paid is in US dollars (USD).
In this section only the most frequent services are mentioned. Any other type of service associated with a passport will be addressed according to the nature of the request.
For any service, consular offices are authorized to include additional requirements to those indicated in this document.
The consular offices have the right to refuse to manage a service, if the consular staff doubts the utility for the citizen; if you think that such service may injure the Applicant's future interests; or if you question the public FAITH of the Consular Office.
