Most travelers (from United States, Canada, Argentina, México, Chile, Colombia, Spain, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Puerto Rico, Panamá, etc.) do not need to present a negative COVID-19 test upon arrival to the Dominican Republic. 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. Those passengers who present a Vaccination Card or a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before arrival in the Dominican Republic will be exempt from the aleatory test. 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.
