Starting November 29th, 2020 the country will digitalize all mandatory travel and health forms, providing a safer and more efficient experience for passengers
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC – Nov. 20, 2020 – In an effort to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, starting November 29, 2020, the Dominican Republic will adopt a new electronic system providing digital versions of the Traveller’s Health Affidavit, Customs Declaration and International Boarding/Disembarking forms, combined in a single digital form. All passengers entering and departing the country will be required to fill out and submit their digital forms through the Electronic Ticket Portal either before or upon their arrival to the country.
The electronic form is a modern initiative, dedicated to increasing the efficiency of migration, customs and public health processes as well as improving the experience of foreign and Dominican passengers entering and leaving the country.
The form is accessed through the following link: https://eticket.migracion.gob.do/ and must be completed before or upon arrival to the country. Once completed, passengers will receive a QR code that will be scanned by the authorities at the port of entry or by the airlines at check-in during departure. Dominican airports will provide free internet service to allow passengers the option to fill up their forms upon arrival.
Between November 29, 2020 and December 31, 2020, the Dominican authorities will accept both types of registrations to enter the country: the current one through physical forms, and the new one through the digital system. As of January 1, 2021, the use of digital forms will be mandatory.
The Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism has undertaken the task of communicating to the corresponding public and private entities within and outside the Dominican Republic about this new medium and has created video tutorials with instructions on how to complete the forms as well as a list of frequently asked questions.
