Air Canada is now flying into POP through Toronto and Montreal on weekends. You can purchase your own self administered Canadian approved Covid test kit from them for your return to Canada. The US land border crossings just opened up to Canadians. No testing required to enter the US, just proof of vaccination. Canadian approved Covid PCR testing is still required for Canadians crossing back into Canada. Government representatives from the US and Canada are pressuring the Canadian government to eliminate the Covid PCR test or replace it with the 15 minute quick test. A few epidemiologists have come out in favour of the quick test. I’m hoping this pressure makes the government eliminate the PCR test requirement for Canadians returning from other countries. Otherwise we are back to a double standard. No testing required at land crossings but testing required at airports.

Arrived 29 October at POP from Toronto and had no issues until arrival. Wasn’t aware you needed to complete immigration document online and no paper option.

The Canadian Airline allowed you to board without filling out the E-Ticket on line, eh? Oh my...

So were you sent to a Gulag or did you get through without it? I am betting on the latter...........

We had e ticket, just didn’t know we had to fill out declarations online so had to get help from staff. Flight was already an hour late, we were the last ones out of the airport. Thank goodness our ride waited for us.

Sorry I am a bit confuse with your reply. Can it be that what you call "fill out declarations online" here in the DR is called eticket which replaced the papers that you use to fill out before passing immigration, and when you say you had an eticket you are referring to your airplane ticket.

When you say staff help you out did they provide internet access?

Thank you for replying. Immigration should of used another name for the "online declarations" instead of eticket which has be used by airlines for many years replacing paper tickets. Typical in the DR clear as mud.....no problema!

Its good to know that they were able to help out with the internet. ( I remember my Mother was never able to learn to program a VCR so they need to set up help for these people)

Why can’t people explain a simple answer to this
I will give you a simple answer. If you land in the DR with or without an E Ticket there is NO chance that you will be denied entry...................................
