Dominican Republic Rentista and Pensionado Visas

Dominican Republic offers both Rentista and Pensionado (Retirement) visas.

The only real difference is a rentista requires $2,000 a month passive income and pensionado only requires $1,500 a month in passive income. This can different slightly by embassy, so $2,000 a month is a good benchmark to use.
