Information on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

LATEST UPDATES

INFORMATION UPDATED AS OF JULY 5, 2022

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

As of April 23, 2022, all passengers and crew members do not need to present a COVID-19 Vaccination Card, PCR, or antigen test to enter the Dominican Republic or to enter tourist centers, any establishments or to receive services such as excursions. Random COVID-19 testing for passengers and crew upon arrival in the Dominican Republic will no longer be performed. However, when required, random testing operations may be performed. Passengers who present their Vaccination Card will be exempted from random testing.

Passports: All foreign citizens who enter the Dominican Republic, exclusively for tourism purposes, must have a valid passport during their stay and departure from the country. This exceptional measure is valid until December 31, 2022.

EXCEPTIONS TO THE VALIDITY OF PASSPORTS

Subject to reciprocity, the following foreigners are exempt:

  1. Diplomatic officers and consular officials accredited in the Dominican Republic, as well as other members of permanent or special diplomatic missions and consular posts and their family members who, by virtue of the rules of International Law, are exempt from the obligations related to obtaining a migratory category of entry;
  2. Representatives and delegates, as well as the other members and their relatives of the permanent Missions or of the Delegations before the Intergovernmental Organizations with headquarters in the Dominican Republic or in International Conferences that are celebrated in it;
  3. Officials assigned to International and Intergovernmental Organizations with headquarters in the Dominican Republic and their family members, as well as holders of Dominican diplomatic and official visas.

Pursuant to the discretionary power granted by the Law to the Director General of Immigration, he may authorize the entry into the country of foreigners of United States citizenship who do not meet the requirements set forth in the Law and its regulations, when there are exceptional reasons of a humanitarian nature, public interest or compliance with commitments undertaken by the Dominican Republic. Each authorization is a case in point and, consequently, does not constitute a binding reference or precedent.

Based on the ever-changing nature of the COVID-19 virus, we recommend connecting with your airline or travel agent directly to discuss any protocols that may apply to your country. As needed, we also recommend visiting the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for any updates to international markets and their required procedures. IATA cannot guarantee its accuracy and can accept no liability for any errors or omissions.

E-TICKET

All foreign and Dominican passengers entering or leaving Dominican Republic on commercial flights must complete the free electronic entry and exit form, which combines the Traveler’s Health Affidavit, Customs Declaration and International Embarkation/Disembarkation forms. The form is available in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese and Russian and can be accessed through the following link:

https://eticket.migracion.gob.do

e-ticket-video
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE E-TICKET

Passengers will need to fill out a form for arrival and another one for departure and the system will generate two QR codes. Dominican airports have free internet access, so that passengers who did not fill out the form before flying can do so when they arrive in the country. To save time during the arrival procedure, we recommend filling out the form at least 72 hours before the trip, printing or making a screenshot of the QR code and keeping it on hand until arrival, where it will be scanned by the authorities when passengers go through Customs. The QR code will not be scanned during departure, but it is a confirmation that the form was completed correctly. If passengers need to make any changes to the form, in the E-ticket portal passengers can select the option to consult the issued E-ticket, enter the application code of the form and make the necessary changes. For additional information and to watch an instructional video, please visit: https://viajerodigital.mitur.gob.do/. Passengers arriving on private flights, non-commercial vessels, ferries, cruise ships, etc., do not need to fill out the electronic form. The physical Traveler’s Health Affidavit, Customs Declaration and International Embarkation/Disembarkation forms will be accepted for the aforementioned passengers.

As of September 1, 2021, during the registration process and verification of travel documents prior to boarding, domestic and foreign air operators operating to and from the Dominican Republic, as well as Consignees or other companies that provide passenger assistance services, must ensure and are responsible for strict compliance, that passengers have the completed Electronic Form for Entry and Exit to the Dominican Republic (E-Ticket).

COVID-19 TESTING

As of January 26, 2021, the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism is offering viral antigen testing to international visitors staying at a hotel to meet the new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) travel protocols requiring all travelers ages two and above returning to the United States to present proof of a negative viral COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen) administered within 72 hours prior to departure. The viral test offering will be administered at some of the hotels across the country. For reference, the antigen tests will be performed by technical health personnel and the test results will be certified by the Ministry of Health. Antigen tests are processed faster than PCR tests. To note, while antigen tests are free to qualifying travelers, there is a small out of pocket fee to cover the cost of processing them. Some hotels have decided to absorb this cost, others will charge the guest a small fee, and a few are not part of the program. Please contact your hotel directly to make an appointment or discuss their specific process.

Upon request and at an additional cost, select hotels will also offer PCR tests to guests. As needed, travelers can also make an appointment for viral antigen testing or PCR testing across the country. Click here for more information on the various testing centers or click here to view testing facilities as outlined by the United States Embassy.

This added testing offering is part of the Responsible Tourism Recovery Plan and will be revisited on an on-going basis by the Ministry of Tourism in tandem with the Dominican Government to measures its effectiveness, and will be modified as needed to align with international protocols.

Based on the ever-changing nature of the COVID-19 virus, we recommend connecting with your airline or travel agent directly to discuss any protocols that may apply to your country. As needed, we also recommend visiting the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for any updates to international markets and their required procedures. IATA cannot guarantee its accuracy and can accept no liability for any errors or omissions.

Where can I get a COVID-19 (antigen or PCR) test to travel back to my country?

Please confirm with the authorities of your destination country the specific type of viral test you need (PCR, antigen or antibodies) and the time it should be administered (48, 72 or 96 hours).

CURRENT MEASURES BY THE GOVERNMENT OF THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

As of February 16, 2022, all restrictive measures imposed by COVID-19 are suspended, and it will be up to each individual to take his or her own measures to safeguard his or her health, responsibly, but without restrictions.  

Measures such as the use of face masks, presentation of vaccination cards for access to places of public use or restrictions in public spaces are the responsibility of each individual.

As a result of our stringent safety measures and effective vaccination plan, currently, hotel occupancy has increased to 100%, further solidifying Dominican Republic as a world example of tourism recovery amidst the pandemic.

100% of the Tourism sector personnel (hotels, airports, restaurants, transportation, etc.) have been vaccinated with two doses, and are in the process of being vaccinated with a third dose of the vaccine against COVID-19. With this vaccination program we will continue to strengthen the safety and health of all those who work in the sector in order to also guarantee the safety and health of all tourists who visit us. The hotels, restaurants and partners will continue to work hand in hand with the authorities. 

Dominican Republic has a robust health care system that has been able to quickly detect cases of COVID-19 in the country. For more information about the coronavirus in Dominican Republic, please visit the Ministry of Public Health’s website. (https://www.msp.gob.do/web/) or download the COVID-RD mobile phone application, available on the App Store and Google Play, that works as a passport in which, through a QR code, visitors can report their condition and access many services and information.

For MITUR, the well-being and safety of visitors remains a priority, so it will continue to work in coordination with the other relevant authorities to further strengthen the country’s preventive measures against coronavirus. 

World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) recognition

On May 9, 2022, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) recognized the Dominican Republic as the number one country in the world in tourism recovery. The Dominican tourism model stands out for achieving the most successful recovery in the industry, reaching record numbers in tourist arrivals.

The success of the recovery is attributed to the Dominican Government and the pillars of innovation, entrepreneurship, education, and new destinations, which are the basis for the cooperative effort between the public and private sectors, which jointly ensure the guarantees and health protocols to guarantee safe tourism.

Click HERE for more information.

On January 18, 2022, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) recognized the Dominican Republic for its successful recovery in the tourism industry and its efficient management of sanitary protocols in the country’s different tourist destinations.

The UNWTO highlighted the management and sanitary protocols applied in the Dominican Republic to guarantee safe tourism, thus achieving the most successful recovery of the industry in the entire region, reaching record figures in tourist arrivals.

The success of the recovery is due to the joint effort of the public and private sectors, who continue to work hand in hand with the Association of Hotels and Tourism (ASONAHORES).

The Dominican Republic is the only destination in the region where 100% of the employees in the tourism sector are fully vaccinated with two doses, and which has the lowest incidence rate of contagion in the tourist poles, making the country a safe destination for travel.

Thanks to its recovery, the Dominican Republic has become a tourism reference in the region.
