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.
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.
