{{Packing lists by country}}
+
This is a property of type [[Has type::string]].
 +
All the countries where Peace Corps and Crisis Corps Projects have taken place
  
This list has been compiled by Volunteers serving in the [[Dominican Republic]] and is based on their experience. Use it as an informal guide in making your own list, bearing in mind that experience is individual. There is no perfect list! You obviously cannot bring everything we mention, so consider those items that make the most sense to you personally and professionally, considering your work sector.. Please keep in mind two important factors that might affect your decision on what to buy and what to bring: 1) you have a baggage weight limit; and 2) You can get almost everything that you need in the Dominican Republic.

Dominican extension workers in forestry and water (male or female) usually wear a button-down short- or long-sleeved shirt, neat trousers, boots and a hat. Volunteers in health, education, youth, and small business projects will find that their co-workers often are casual-professional in their dress.  In general, men wear pants and short-sleeved sports shirts or Dominican chacabanas (also called guyaberas), and women wear skirts or pants with nice tops. Worn, torn, patched, tight, overly baggy, or very low-cut clothes are not appropriate for Volunteers. Nor is military-style clothing (i.e., camouflage or olive-green Army surplus items).
