    Can you fill out e-ticket early?

    just over-keenly filled out the e-ticket entry form 1 month early - got the code, but i guess that expires in 3 days time so I'll have to do it again? Will it be straightforward doing so again, or can I use it?

    Where to go for good cigar factory visit?

    I'm hoping to visit a decent cigar factory of a well known brand. Where's best and easiest to visit - anything in the capital? Or is it Santiago area that's better or La Romana? I don't really want an over-hyped package trip ideally, just casually go independently if that's possible.

    Address for entry form, if at hotel?

    Planning to just spend one night at hotel near airport for 1 wk trip - haven't planned the other nights, hope to just decide when I get there. Is it ok for the travel entry form to put down first night's hotel - or will someone ask for hotel reservations for the entire trip?

    Bus from Las Americas airport to town centre?

    re: Sosua - not sure where to go exactly, Sosua just seemed well known, could go there and head out to somewhere else in that area after 1 night - how about Cabarete, is that worth staying in?

    Bus from Las Americas airport to town centre?

    Is it possible to get a bus from the main airport to the town centre of Santo Domingo? Or realistically, should I just get a taxi? I'm hoping to then get a bus to Sosua the following day - what's the best option for doing this on a reasonable budget? thanks

    Is it possible to teach English in DR now, and stay long term?

    thanks for all the replies yes, I have a Uni degree though not in education. I think at first I'll try a 2 week tourist trip to see how it is over there, maybe try some schools, can always change the date on the ticket etc

    Is it possible to teach English in DR now, and stay long term?

    ok, thanks for all the replies - it looks like it could be possible to do here. I'm not that fussed about a big salary, even 800USD/month would be ok - just want to experience the country for 1 year with some teaching work to keep it real. I have degree, Celta, experience so that should help...

    Is it possible to teach English in DR now, and stay long term?

    Hi, I was thinking of visiting the DR back in 2019 but then the virus hit. So now, I'm going to give it a try. I'd like to stay for about 1yr and fund it by teaching English at a school in Santo Domingo - is that possible? By the way, I'm only interested in face to face teaching, so online only...
