Okay, so it’s always been a pretty desirable destination for some Caribbean sun. But the Dominican Republic entry requirements mean you only need to test once, when you’re back home, to enjoy a sun-filled fiesta.

In this blog we’ll take you through everything you need to do (or not do as the case may be) to get back on that silver bird to sun-town this year.

We’re desperately in need of some Vitamin Sea right now, and the Dom Rep might just be your easy ticket to the beach.

Read on for a full run-down of the rules.



What are the Dom Rep’s entry requirements?

While we’re talking keeping things simple, here’s a quick break down of the Dominican Republic entry requirements:

Vaccinated travellers

  • Present vaccination card with proof of jabs administered more than three weeks before arrival in Dom Rep
  • Complete the free entry and exit form before travel
  • No need to take a pre-departure test to return home
  • Test on or before day 2 of returning to UK
  • Enjoy your time in the sun

Non-Vaccinated Travellers

  • Present a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before arrival
  • Complete the free entry and exit form before travel
  • Have your temperature tested on arrival in Dom Rep
  • Take a pre-departure test no more than 72 hours before arrival
  • Test on or before day 2 of returning to the UK
  • Test again on or after day 8 of returning to the UK

Travelling with Children

One test wonder

With the UK’s decision to scrap pre-departure testing coming in recently, getting away this year has become much simpler.

If you’re fully vaccinated the only time you would need to test is on, or before, day 2 of getting home. So, you actually don’t need to provide a negative result until you’re chilling back home trying to escape the post-hol blues.

Moreover, the benefits to these new regulations, which came into existence in the Dom Rep from December 21, also mean you’re able to enjoy some top excursions on your escape.

The confirmation of your vaccination status ensures you don’t have to test to head out of the resort.
