The Dominican Republic has dropped a COVID-19 testing requirement for those entering the country. Up until recently, all people entering the country were required to carry test results with them or have administered at the airport if they were not tested prior to travel.

Key Points:

  • A negative COVID-19 test (PCR and/or serology) is no longer required for entry.
  • Travelers are still subject to other COVID-19 health screenings, including temperature checks, at the airport.
  • Any person leaving the Dominican Republic may be asked to fill out the following health declarations and customs forms: Passenger Locator Form (English/Spanish); Traveler Health Affidavit (English/Spanish); Traveler Instructive Commitment (English/Spanish).

Additional Information: The Dominican Republic extended its state of emergency until Oct. 18 and curfew until Sept. 27. The curfew is strictly enforced and is different in each city. Travelers must carry their airline ticket, travel itinerary and passport while en route to and from an airport. Anyone visiting immigration centers should be prepared to follow health protocols currently in place to limit the spread of COVID-19.
