    They come, and they bast in the sun, and rain, it is so difficult to get a green card if you are a Dominican,I can tell cus I have been thru the rig ma rool of this Bull—,If you are an american in Dominica there are many ways you can renew your visa , or passport without this people coming to Dominica. If they want to help the young , and old show them how to get thru the red tape, if you dont have a relative to file for you,which will take for ever, you you wont have a chanche getting a green card ,the Americans come mess with your ego, let you think they are doing the write thing, and you get old waiting for a visa or a green card, how ever if you are from soupy arabia your visa is oat ma tic, go ficor it out I have a friend who file for his green card thru his family he has waited so long that his has lost most of his toes , by the time the american is ready for him half of his body will be at the princess Margaret hospital,then he will be denied due health problem. ,

    This is done every year! Twice yearly the us consular visits Dominica and other islands to facilitate US citizens living abroad. Some of these statements are so uninformed and uneducated, Its apalling.

    This is a way for the U.S. personnel to have a vacation in Dominica, I don’t understand the purpose of this trip, it is a wast of time and U.S. tax dollars.

      Dominican crying I agree wit you. It is an additional cost to go to Barbados pay hotel taxi food and some times don’t even get the visa. This is so expensive.
