Hiring in the Dominican Republic

A popular tourist destination thanks to some beautiful beaches and natural landscapes, the Dominican Republic shares the island of Hispaniola with its only neighbour, Haiti. The Dominican Republic has a population of over 10 million, with around three million living in the capital, Santo Domingo.

The Dominican Republic’s economy has diversified significantly in the last decade, shifting from agriculture to mainly services, backed up by exports of gold, tobacco products and manufactured goods. The Dominican Republic has a large diaspora, mostly based in the US, and remittances make up a sizeable chunk of Dominican finances.

Investing in the Dominican Republic is popular but can be tricky thanks to local business laws and a complicated taxation system for foreign organisations. Dominican workers are seeing improving working conditions, but problems like child labour and informal working practices are still common.
