The Indian community in the Dominican Republic consists of a small number of expatriates and immigrants from India and their locally born descendants. As of 2012, there are about 200 people of Indian ancestry living the country.[1]

In recent years, Indian students have started joining medical courses in the Dominican Republic and engineers and IT professionals are trickling in as major companies have set up shop on the island.[2] There is also a small Gujarati business community mainly engaged in hospitality and jewelry businesses.
