Dominican Republic Travel Updates
Give in to the pull of the Dominican Republic!
The lure of travel. It’s like a magnetic pull. That need to get out there and feel wonderful again. In a place like the Dominican Republic. Immersive. Indulgent. And now, worry-free thanks to our free health coverage plan – the only country in the Caribbean offering you that peace of mind. Along with new safety measures on all of our properties. Which makes it easy to give in to that feeling you need to feel.
Some of the new measures include temperature checks, social distancing requirements, and no need to provide a negative PCR or COVID-19 test upon arrival. Instead, airports and other ports of entry will administer a quick, aleatory breath test to between 3% and 10% of passengers, and all those who present symptoms, upon arrival.
The Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism is diligently working in coordination with the Dominican Government and the private sector to develop a comprehensive plan to address the CDC’s new protocols requiring travelers as of January 26, 2021, returning to the U.S. to present proof of a negative COVID-19 or antigen test prior to departure. Following the launch of the Recovery of Tourism plan in September the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism worked to establish a series of PCR testing sites for tourists throughout the country. As of now, tourists can make an appointment for the PCR test sample collection through select channels; click here for more information. To inquire about specific testing offerings at your resort we recommend contacting your resort directly.
The Dominican Republic is also the only country in the region currently offering a free health coverage plan to ALL international tourists arriving on commercial flights and staying at a hotel on or before March 31, 2021. In the event of an infection or exposure to COVID-19, the travel assistance plan will cover medical attention by specialists, medical transfers, transfer of a relative, the penalty for airfare changes, lodging for prolonged stays and more.
