    Exchanging a foreign covid certificate to a DR recognized one

    My experience is that a EU-QR code is also accepted in the DR as proof of vaccination. The International QRT codes shows all the required info, dates, vaccines etc

    E-Ticket (Can't enter the DR without this)

    I was told by the airline (Tui) that unless I had an E-ticket we would be denied boarding at Brussel airport. So not denied because I had an e-ticket but told I would be denied if I didn't have one.

    E-Ticket (Can't enter the DR without this)

    It is true that we were not asked for the QR-code on the way out. But we were asked to show it (and it was scanned) on the way in. This was at SDQ. Of course my experience is only anecdotical and, like many rules in the DR, the e-ticket might not be enforced. Either way, I just posted to share...

    E-Ticket (Can't enter the DR without this)

    The family went through customs in SDQ yesterday with the E-ticket (a QR-code) on the phone of my wife. They presented the QR-code when asked and were waved through after that. The blue immigration forms (which were also already prepared) were not necessary. It was also not necessary to...

    Haiti's Burden of History

    Seems my post (before the fact) was very much spot-on. The Haitians are in the clutches of the SA-drug cartels, just like many countries in SA). Nothing but civil war might solve that. The Dominicans are not that much better off in terms of nacro influence. As long as a country doesn't have...

    Haiti's Burden of History

    Dear MountainAnnie, I am glad to see you are still alive and hopefully well enough. You are aware of my position on Haiti as one of the world's most unruly, chaotic countries in the world. If they ever found their feet and set aside their squabbling then a nation could be built. But from the...

    Elective surgery on the NC

    Dear fellow DR1-ers, To be honest I am not sure if this is the correct venue for this delicate matter. Recently I have received a request if I know of any medical doctors on the NC with experience in reconstructive surgery with regards to the female birthcanal. Apparently the girl was small...
