Welcome to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) website for the Dominican Republic. UNHCR is a humanitarian agency created by the United Nations General Assembly in 1950. As a part of the United Nations System, we implement the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, a universal call for action to end poverty, protect the planet, and improve the lives and perspectives of people around the world.

  • UNHCR leads international action to protect persons in situations of forced displacement and fled their homes due to conflict and persecution
  • UNHCR works to guarantee that stateless and at-risk of statelessness persons have a nationality solution

UNHCR is a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people.

All UNHCR and partner services are free of charge.
