    Default tourist card cost to be incorporated into airline ticket price

    interesting news today:
    https://www.diariolibre.com/economia...ereo-KC8712194

    the 10 dollar cost of tourist card is to be incorporated into the price of the airline ticket.

    pay special attention to this:
    Indica que los visitantes que por disposiciones previstas en convenios sobre la base de reciprocidad no estén sujetos al pago de la tarjeta de turismo, tendrán derecho al reembolso del valor pagado por este concepto, el cual deberá requerirse ante las oficinas de la Dirección General de Impuestos Internos (DGII).

    now i wonder... if the tourist card cost in a part of airfare then the residents and dominicans will be equally subjected to this with the right to ask DGII for reimbursement? well well...

    Im wondering if they now will charge even Dominicans with the 10.00 US$, when I book a flight to visit Canada westjet charge the 10.00 Dollars avoiding the fact that Im Dominican and I dont have to pay and give every body the turist card in flights to Dominican Republic. Hope now this situation can be solved or will be oficial scam from Dominicans.

    No need to worry. From now on there will be a stack of $10 USD bills waiting to be handed out to Dominicans and legal residents when they go to stamp your passport. Quite possibly upon request you may be able to receive pesos instead of USD.

    What a scam this will be for the DR because who really reads the fine print of the itemized plane ticket cost?

    That should be in the Clown Bin.

    As for the OP, yet another screwed up thing to add to confusion and increase the ticket price.

    and many more plus until reach almost 50% of the value of the tickets, and sometimes more than 50% when you get special offer over a regular price.

    Yes - WestJet includes the $10 in the ticket.

    No- I have never seen how to refund that money ....
    gone like snow in July

    Be careful you travelers...
    when every passenger already has the card - the line fills up faster.!!

    Normally, I jump the tourist card line to be early at the wicket on US flights
    Cdn flights - we all go to the wicket together.

    There should be a Citizens/Residents line.....
