Update January 20, 2021

Protocol for travel

Aligning with the launch of the Responsible Tourism Recovery Plan on September 15, travelers no longer need to provide a negative PCR or COVID-19 test upon arrival.

Instead, airports and other ports of entry will perform a quick, aleatory breath test to between 3% and 15% of passengers, and all those who present symptoms, upon arrival. Passengers under the age of five and crew members are exempt from this procedure. All passengers will also need to perform a temperature check. Passengers who present symptoms or whose test results are positive will be isolated and attended at authorized locations.

Prior to departure, travelers should confirm with their airline provider and airport of origin regarding any testing or other related requirements for inbound flights to the Dominican Republic, or necessary requirements needed upon arrival to their country of origin.

Quarantine exception

The Dominican Republic Civil Aviation Board issued a resolution cancelling all air operations between the United Kingdom and the Dominican Republic until January 17, 2021 following the discovery of a new strain of the coronavirus. Currently, only Dominican citizens are allowed to take ferry flights from the United Kingdom (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales) to Dominican Republic, and those passengers must quarantine for 7 days upon arrival. Ferry flights also transport UK citizens from the Dominican Republic to their country.

Travelers whose trip originates in the UK and arrive to the Dominican Republic via connecting flights must also quarantine for 7 days upon arrival. All quarantines take place in facilities assigned by the Dominican government and may be extended, pending a negative PCR test result.
