The FCO travel advice for the Dominican Republic has been amended in the entry requirements section – updated information and advice about use of tourist cards and checks being carried out by the local immigration authorities. The overall level of advice has not changed.

Please see the relevant extract below:

Entry requirements – Visas

All visitors need a tourist card to enter the Dominican Republic. You can get a tourist card before travel from the Embassy of the Dominican Republic in London, or on arrival at the airport at a cost of US$10 or equivalent. The Dominican Republic Embassy website has more information.

Tourist cards are initially valid for a 30-day stay but can be extended by paying for an extension when you leave the country. If you overstay this initial 30-day period, you’ll have to pay a surcharge when you leave the country. If you’re planning to stay for longer than 30 days, seek advice from a local lawyer or contact the local Immigration authorities.
