Administrative divisions of the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is divided into 31 provinces, while the national capital, Santo Domingo, is contained within its own Distrito Nacional (National District). The division of the country into provinces is laid down in the constitution (Title I, Section II, Article 5) and enacted by law. The latter is currently Law 5220 on the Territorial Division of the Dominican Republic (Ley No. 5220 sobre División Territorial de la República Dominicana), issued in 1959 and frequently amended to create new provinces and lower-level administrative units.

The provinces are the first-level administrative subdivisions of the country. The headquarters of the central government's regional offices are normally found in the capital cities of provinces. The president appoints an administrative governor (Gobernador Civil) for each province but the Distrito Nacional (Title IX of the constitution).

The provinces are divided into municipalities (municipios), which are the second-level administrative subdivisions of the country.

Regions

The Dominican Republic is divided into three macro-regions, which are in turn divided into 10 geographic regions.

It is unclear if the regions have any administrative functions. They do, however, have ISO 3166-2 codes as principle subdivisions of the Dominican Republic.
