Expat FAQs: Moving to and Living in the Dominican Republic, by Ilana Benady and the late Ginnie Bedggood, gets high praise in this review by Lindsay de Feliz in Jetsettlers Magazine. Lindsay, a UK-born freelance writer, researcher and translator who lives in the Dominican Republic with her Dominican husband, has this to say:
“This is a book you read before you come here, and then it proves its usefulness, because you will be checking it on a weekly basis for how to do something, where to find something, the laws about something else, and the way to solve the issues which arise on a daily basis.
Expat FAQ is not a light-hearted yet revealing read about the Dominican Republic and its people. It is a veritable encyclopedia about how to actually function here: from how to obtain residency and a Dominican driving license, to how to buy a house, arrange health insurance, how much things cost, and a host of other useful information to enable the new arrival and, indeed, the existing expat to make their lives in the DR a whole lot easier and smoother.”
