The Dominican Republic will eliminate the entry requirement for proof of a negative Covid-19 test result at the end of September. An earlier ruling, now updated, was that the Covid requirement would be eliminated sometime this fall.
Until then, all travelers must submit proof of a negative test taken no more than five days prior to arrival in the country, fill out a Traveler's Health Affidavit and get a temperature check upon arrival.
In place of the test result is a rapid Breathalyzer-style test that will be performed on randomly selected travelers upon arrival. The test takes five minutes and results are immediate, and the test detects if a traveler was exposed or infected within the previous four hours.
If positive, the traveler quarantines in a designated area within his hotel and is regularly tested.
