What you need to know before vacationing in the Dominican Republic

A paradise country with the world's best beaches, tropical forests, savannas, and mountains welcomes tens of thousands of tourists every year. They come here to enjoy an exotic vacation with comfortable weather and relatively affordable prices. However, this destination also has its own nuances, which you should know about before you start your trip.

Rules for entering the Dominican Republic in 2023

As before, Ukrainians do not need to apply for a visa to visit the Dominican Republic. They can safely stay in the country for up to 30 days with only a passport. After this period, you can apply to the migration service and extend your stay for another month.

To enter the Dominican Republic, you must have:

  • a passport valid for the period of travel to the Dominican Republic plus one month;
  • confirmation of accommodation reservation for the entire period of travel;
  • a return ticket;
  • medical insurance.

After crossing the border, you will need to pay a special fee of $10. Interestingly, when you leave the Dominican Republic, you will again need to pay the fee, this time the amount is doubled. Only children under the age of two are exempt from this fee. Please note that to travel with children, you need to obtain a power of attorney from their parents.

Unlike many other countries in the world, the Dominican Republic does not have any preferential programs for Ukrainians. Therefore, it is simply impossible to stay in its territory as a refugee.

How to get to the Dominican Republic

The road to this country used to be quite simple. There was a flight from Ukraine that required only one stopover in the EU. However, now everything is a bit more complicated.

First, you need to get to Warsaw. This can be done by train or bus. Transport to the Polish capital runs from many cities in Ukraine, including Kyiv, Lviv, and Ivano-Frankivsk.

Then you need to buy tickets from Warsaw to Punta Cana with a transfer to Frankfurt or Madrid. The waiting time for the flight can be from 2 to 24 hours.

Ticket prices start at $730 and can reach several thousand dollars.
