Passport requirements for Dominican Republic
Travelers heading to the Dominican Republic will need to have a valid U.S. passport with them when entering and exiting the country. If you enter the Dominican Republic via air or sea travel without documents, you may be sent directly back to the United States. If you do not obtain a visa prior to arriving in the Dominican Republic, you must purchase a tourist card upon arrival. You can also purchase the tourist card at the Dominican Embassy in Washington or at the Dominican airports at entry. Keep in mind that:Tourist cards normally permit a legal stay of up to 60 days. Visitors who would like to extend their time in the Dominican Republic should visit the Migration Department in Santo Domingo and request an extension. Failure to request an extension will subject the visitor to a surcharge at the airport upon departure. The surcharge, assessed on a sliding scale, ranges from $30 for one month to as high as $500 for five years.
