    Default tourist card

    Do I have to get a tourist card if I am not staying overnight? If so, can I get one when I arrive at the Santo Domingo airport? How much?
    Thanks

    Default Tourist Card

    I'm not too sure about the overnight thing......but a tourist card costs 10 bucks. Jim Hinsch....a regular poster will be able to answer that question for sure ....as he enters about four or five times a month!

    Yes, if you arrive by the airport, you will be required to purchase a tourist card unless you are from a select number of countries for which this is not required, which does not include the USA and Canada. If you are coming by cruise ship, this may be reduced. For more information, see http://dr1.com/travel/prepare/documentation.shtml

    Default If you are in Transit you don't have to..at least i don't think so.

    You usually go to another part of the airport and await your next flight. You do not 'really' enter the country, so therefore no Tourist Card...

    Of course if you do have to satay overnight then the airline that made you miss your connection would have to pay for it anyway.

    Doesn't this sound right, folks??

    If you are fllying in, you will need one. It may be included in your ticket bundle, or you may have to buy it at the airport. If you are on a cruise, I don't think you need one, but this is a new one on me.

    If you ARE on a cruise, I would love to get some feedback on what you thought of the stop in this country.

    The tourist card requirement applies if you must pass through immigration. That is where it is asked for. For example, crew do not pass through immigration when they are just reboarding the next flight out. Nor do those that wait in the transit lounge.
