The Dominican community in New York, the largest in the city, now has a postal system available to and from the island, at low cost.
The Dominican consul in New York, Eligio Jáquez, and the general director of the Dominican Postal Institute (Inposdom), Adán Peguero, announced yesterday an agreement that seeks to help immigrants with their correspondence needs with their country of origin.
The agreement will allow send documents and packages by express service through the consulate, at a moderate price, highlighted NY1 News.
Dozens of post offices in the Dominican Republic will be participating in the distribution of correspondence, along with the consulates in New York and Boston (Massachusets).
With 450,000 people, the Dominican Republic is the home country of the majority of NYC’s foreign-born residents.
Today the work agreement was signed between @imposdomRD and @ConsulDom_NY, to add the service of sending envelopes and packages from NY to RD.
