Aerodom: The Dominican Republic is open for all travellers 'with no restrictions'

7 October, 2020

Aeropuertos Dominicanos Siglo XXI (Aerodom) reported (01-Oct-2020) "The entry doors of the Dominican Republic are open with no restrictions", as of 15-Sep-2020. Dominican Republic authorities have reviewed the COVID-19 protocols and established a new procedure that eliminates the requirement to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test upon arrival. The Government has dropped its full-scale testing programme, instead opting for rapid tests performed on randomly-selected passengers. As part of the measures to support the recovery of the tourism industry, the Dominican Republic is offering free travellers' health insurance for COVID-19-related incidents to all tourists that enter the country. Measures in place at Aerodom airports to combat the spread of COVID-19 include:

  • Compulsory wearing of a mask by passengers;
  • Use of protective screens between passengers and employees as well as masks according to the exposure of each position;
  • Organisation of queues, spaces and flow monitoring to reduce density;
  • Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfection of all possible contact areas;
  • Special attention to air circulation and renewal in terminals;
  • Wide and continuous availability of hydro-alcoholic gel;
  • Continuous communication on health advice and passenger processes. [more - original PR]
