Do you currently need a covid test upon arrival to DR?
Save

I read different things about testing upon arrival, i called Spirit airlines and they said you do...but a friend was just there and did not need one. I took one yesterday just to be safe, but i want to make sure to take another if needed 72 hours before arrival. Please advise if someone knows the current rules. I hopefully fly Friday.

Here in Portugal from the othet side of the pond, the info that we've is that's no need of any kind of testing to enter DR right now and i hope that still remains like this because we'll arrive on May 31 and just need to be tested to return home.

No requirement of pre testing before arrival, just be aware that random testing is done at the airport upon arrival, so you could be stopped and asked to take a test. You will need an antigen test to be done before you leave the DR to enter the US.

We who live here appreciate all who pre-test prior to arriving. That being said, it is not required to enter the country.

I would hope people do in order not to infect others on the plane or the people of DR

Don’t travel if you aren’t going to be responsible

Thanks everyone for your quick responses! Yes definitely being responsible with testing, just wanted to double check to have a test within requirements if there was any. Plus I’m fully vaccinated as off 3 weeks ago.

Unfortunately if your airline believes that you do, you could have an issue with them not letting you on a plane if you don't have the results they want.

It’s not required but you can bet your bottom dollar that some will be yanked out of line and tested at PUJ. You also won’t be staying at the Ritz if you test positive. As Mike states, the residents appreciate it.
