As of July 1, 2020 all airports and tourism activities in the Dominican Republic have reopened, including the reactivation of flight routes from Europe, Latin America, Canada and the United States. Starting November 29, 2020 passengers that arrive on commercial flights will be required to complete the electronic entry and exit form, which combines the Traveler’s Health Affidavit, Customs Declaration, and International Embarkation/Disembarkation forms. It is available in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Russian and can be accessed through the following link: https://eticket.migracion.gob.do/

Between November 29, 2020,  and April 30, 2021, the Dominican authorities will accept both types of registrations to enter the country: the current one through physical forms, and the new one through the digital system. As of May 1, 2021, the use of digital forms will be mandatory.

Additionally, as of September 15, 2020 rapid tests are being performed to randomly selected travelers upon arrival, such as the breath test for COVID-19. Passengers under the age of five and crew members are exempt from this requirement. Airports and other ports of entry will perform temperature checks and other controls to monitor all passenger arrivals. Travelers should also check with the airline directly to confirm if they have any testing or other related requirements for inbound flights to the Dominican Republic.

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.
