Moving to the Dominican Republic from the US

Introduction to Moving Abroad

Embarking on a life-changing decision like moving abroad can be both exciting and challenging. The idea of starting anew, experiencing a different culture, and breaking away from your comfort zone is indeed intriguing. But what if that move is to a beautiful Caribbean nation like the Dominican Republic?


The Dominican Republic: An Overview

Geographic and Cultural Diversity

The Dominican Republic is the second-largest Caribbean nation, known for its rich history, cultural diversity, and stunning landscapes. From pristine beaches to mountain ranges, the country offers a diverse setting for expatriates.

Economic Landscape

The country’s economy is among the most robust in the region, with sectors like tourism, agriculture, and services acting as key drivers. The Dominican Republic’s increasing economic stability makes it an enticing destination for expats.

Advantages of Moving to the Dominican Republic

Lower Cost of Living

Compared to the US, the cost of living in the Dominican Republic is significantly lower. This includes expenses for housing, food, and healthcare.

Pleasant Climate

With a tropical climate, the Dominican Republic offers year-round warm weather. Love the sun, sea, and sand? This could be your paradise!

Vibrant Lifestyle and Rich Culture

A fusion of Spanish, African, and Taino cultures, the Dominican Republic offers a vibrant lifestyle. From Merengue and Bachata music and dance to baseball games, there’s always something happening.

Considerations Before the Move

Residency and Legal Matters

Before the move, familiarize yourself with immigration laws and obtain necessary visas and permits. Consider hiring an attorney to navigate through the legal processes.


Housing and Cost of Living

While overall cheaper than the US, consider your budget for housing. Research neighborhoods, real estate prices, and living expenses to plan better.


Health Care

Evaluate the healthcare system. The Dominican Republic has both public and private healthcare, but the quality varies.


If you’re moving with children, review the education system. There are several international schools, but they are primarily in urban areas.

Adapting to Life in the Dominican Republic

Understanding Local Customs and Etiquette

Dominicans are friendly and hospitable. Learn the local customs and social etiquette to blend in smoothly.

Dealing with Language Barriers

Spanish is the official language. Although English is spoken in tourist areas and by some locals, it can be beneficial to learn Spanish.


Moving to the Dominican Republic from the US presents an opportunity to enjoy a slower pace of life, in a beautiful, culturally rich, and economically growing environment. Thorough research, preparation, and an open mind can make the transition smoother and the experience rewarding.

Die Osteopressurist eine therapeutische Maßnahme zur Behandlung von Schmerzen, die bislang nicht erfolgreich behandelt werden konnten. Im Rahmen dieser Maßnahme wird Druck auf Alarmschmerzrezeptoren an der Knochenhaut ausgeübt. Hiermit wird Muskelspannung gesenkt und dem Gehirn das Signal gegeben, dass aktuell kein Schaden droht, denn Schmerz entsteht immer dann, wenn ein Schaden droht. Dies wird dir ermöglichen, deutlich entspannter und beschwerdefreier unsere Übungen durchzuführen.


Bei der Engpassdehnung handelt es sich primär um ein Übungsprogramm für zuhause. Es geht dabei insbesondere darum, dem dir zu zeigen, was du selbst tun kannst um deinen Erfolg dauerhaft zu halten. Der Erfolg der Schmerztherapie hängt in hohem Maße davon ab, wie regelmäßig die Engpassdehnungen ausgeführt werden.

Um einen möglichst langfristigen Erfolg erzielen zu können, musst du täglich ca. 20 Minuten in die Übungen investieren. Egal wie dein Zustand ist, es wird für dich möglich sein, die Übungen zu meistern.


Mithilfe der Faszien-Rollmassage wird der Effekt der Engpassdehnungen und Osteopressur verstärkt. Ablagerungen im Interzellularraum werden in Bewegung gebracht und die Spannungen der Muskeln und Faszien normalisieren sich.

Du lernst wie du mit den Faszienrollen die Osteopressurpunkte selbst behandelst, damit wirst du dein eigener Therapeut.

Testimonials from our clients

Our clients’ opinions are important to us, so we would like to share them with you to give you further insight into our treatments.


Sehr kompetent und einfühlsam. Schon nach der ersten Behandlung habe ich das Gefühl, dass endlich mal nicht die Symptome, sondern die Ursachen meiner Schmerzen und Migräne behandelt werden. Das macht richtig Hoffnung! Das Konzept von Liebscher & Bracht ist bahnbrechend und leuchtet sofort ein und ist gleichzeitig so einfach anzuwenden. Die Behandlung bei Patrick ist absolut empfehlenswert.

Ariane Guthrie


Diese Behandlung war in jeder Hinsicht ein Gewinn, da sie meine sehr schmerzhaften Beschwerden binnen kurzem stark gelindert hat. Außerdem ist es sehr hilfreich, diese Methoden die mir vermittelt wurden, selbst anwenden zu können. Besonders möchte ich die einfühlsame und außerordentlich kompetente Art der Behandlung von Miriam hervorheben, das hat mir sehr gefallen und ich kann es nur empfehlen!!!!

Sabine Koziol


Ich bin als jahrzehntelanger Schmerzpatient bisher 3x bei Patrick Wenzel zur Behandlung nach L&B gewesen. Patrick zeigt in jeder Einheit effektive und sinnvolle Übungen und kontrolliert ebenso die bereits erlernten Einheiten. Ich kann Patrick absolut empfehlen. Allerdings muss man wie immer fleißig am Ball bleiben – dazu motiviert Patrick aber auch 🙂 Vielen Dank!

My name is Chris, and my wife's name is Nirve. I am a pilot with American Airlines. Jens and his team are exceptional. Jens has greatly assisted us throughout the entire procedure.

We have worked with several agents in the past, but Jens has consistently outperformed them in terms of speed and securing better deals. Additionally, he has been instrumental in the entire remodeling process of the villa we purchased.

We have bought two properties through Jens and plan to continue our partnership with him. Furthermore, Jens and his amazing team also manage our rental properties. We are looking forward to making more investments in the Dominican Republic (DR) soon.

Please feel free to contact either my wife or me at any time if you have further questions.

Best regards,
Chris and Nirve

To Whom It May Concern,

As a trained banker, I emigrated to the Dominican Republic 2 years ago. I have purchased a house from Jens, and I must say, I am thoroughly satisfied with his service. His knowledge and experience are unmatched in the North Coast of the Dominican Republic.

Post-purchase, his after-sales service and ongoing support have been excellent as well. I am completely impressed by Jens and the quality of his work.

Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have further questions. , ‎+1 (809) 763-3226
