Travelers are no longer required to bring COVID-19 test results to visit DR
As of September 15th, tourists will no longer have to bring a negative coronavirus test result to enter the Dominican Republic. Instead, airport officials will administer rapid tests to randomly selected visitors upon arrival. The Ministry of Public Health stated that visitors who test positive in these rapid tests will receive a subsequent PCR test to confirm their current health status.
Foreign visitors who test positive or report feeling COVID-19 symptoms will be isolated in their hotel rooms, will receive support from the hotel’s medical staff, and have access to a travel assistance plan. The travel assistance plan provides coverage for emergencies, telemedicine services, COVID-19 testing, lodging for prolonged stays and costs for changing flights at no additional charge to visitors.
In conjunction with these new travel measures, passengers are now required to fill out and submit a Traveler’s Health Affidavit. This document asks passengers to declare they have not felt any COVID-19 symptoms in the last 72 hours, and to provide their contact information for the next 30 days.
