Entry Requirements for the Dominican Republic

As of May 1, 2012 citizens of all nationalities will be required to enter Dominican Republic with a VALID PASSPORT. 

To travel to the Dominican Republic, many people will need a Visa. Others, however, may be from countries who have signed agreements with the Dominican Republic so that they only need a Tourist Card. This, of course, only applies to visitors who are tourists.

A Tourist Card is a US $10 tax on incoming tourists that can be purchased at the airport when you arrive. Some airlines include this Touris Card in the price of the ticket and you will get them handed out in the plane.
