In all honesty i would not mail a ttm to the DM. mail carriers down there make the worst of our look like saints walking on water. sstories of them burning mail is not uncommon.

it would best i foyu sent your request via ups or fedex both to and from. it will cost about 800% more this way but its the safest way to go.

if you send by mail, you'll need Dominican stamps....
.

You may be able to get some thru their website, and find out how much you'll need for the return.... I can't read Spanish so I can't help.

First, the Dominican postal service is very unreliable (corrupt? shady?) so if you sent something from the United States chances are it may get "lost".

I have an acquaintance in the DR and he has a Miami-based courier service for any US-based mail to make it to him in Santo Domingo. He doesn't trust his postal service. Before he got the courier, he strongly recommended using a 3rd party shipper like UPS, FedEx...but if you've ever checked those prices it's prohibitive.

But then again, if you're sending a five-cent card to Stan Javier in the Dominican and you just want to see what happens, you could try an International Reply Coupon which works like return postage on a SASE. I've never tried it myself, but you could read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_reply_coupon

Good luck!
