I don't think on-line check-in works in DR.... you need the paper boarding pass
Note at security/Migracion they have no scanners

Yes, even if entered on-line, the check-in person wants to see your Neg CV test... and may ask for more

I have NEVER been able to check-in online - US/Cdn departures are different, on-line works

Take a printscreen and save it in a new folder you can name anything (DR Trip works well). When you take the printscreen, make sure the date snd time is visible. Like this:

F45BF933-1B80-4CD0-8523-B01A44C0D801.png


When they ask for whatever, take out your cell and show him or her your printscreen(s). Should work.

I'm flying down this Friday on Jet Blue and filled my e-ticket out Saturday night and received my QR code right after I hit the "submit" button. The thing I had a problem with was where it came to the hotel you were staying at. I'll be staying at two different hotels, one in Boca and the other in Sosua, and in that long list of accommodations offered, neither one of my hotels was on the list. I did write out the Sosua hotel but it was invalid. So I just typed in another hotel nearby, which was on the list, and was then able to proceed to the next segment.

This is my 3rd time doing this and I really prefer this way over the old way with filling out multiple forms at 30,000 feet with turbulence and people ALWAYS looking at you, waiting for you to finish up so they can ask you for your pen.

My last arrival into SDQ, must have been good timing as there was nobody in the immigration line as I entered and held my phone up with the QR code in my email to show anyone who looked like an airport official. One guy saw it at a quick glance and waved me on up to the desk where the immigration lady only asked for my passport. A few seconds later, I'm making my way out of the arrival terminal and toward the taxi area.

From the time I stepped off the plane to the taxi, might have been literally 15 minutes. If I hadn't stopped at the small bank inside the terminal to exchange $200 USD, it would have been no more than 10 minutes.

A weekend in Boca Chica and Sosua, touring the cesspits of the DR. To answer your question, they only have hotels which are registered with the Ministry of Tourism on the list of hotels, ie those which are legit and have a licence.

Quite honestly, I think you can pick any one you want because that is not one of the things they are interested in. If you match the providence/municipality I think you're good togo. At the start of e-tic...ages ago, they had a couple of guys at the airport with laptop to assist. One day I filled out my form for exit and not for entry. So I went to the help spot and he basically filled it out for me with the information from the woman that was ahead of me. He brought cut and paste to a new level. lol.

They are not cesspits. I live in BC and have spent 4 days in Sosua. I would prefer to live in PP but that's not happening now. I just don't think you should denigrate 2 towns where it's extremely easy to avoid the areas with the bad rep.

Yes, both are fairly nice towns. It's what they have to offer that some people object to.

How many different e-ticket websites are there?

After opening this webpage https://e-ticket-dominicanrepublic.org/ I clicked on the "form" link https://e-travelonline.com/dominican/en-form
and it appears to be a SCAM?

Thanks for your reply, MariaRubia. I could have done without the "colorful" description of each place, but it's fine. It's not a weekend in each, only Boca. Sosua, which will include numerous day trips to other coastal spots, will take up the rest of the 3 weeks, which might include having a look at a couple of properties. I have numerous friends and acquaintances in each place, so I enjoy the scene, however much of a cesspit you consider both to be.

But thanks for stopping by.

Inmigration do not need to ask you for e-ticket, when they read your passport they see that you completed the form.

My apologies for not taking the time to go back and read every single comment of a 32 page thread but since you were polite enough to point that out, would you please be so kind to post #'s so that those of us who missed it can go back read them?
Thanks in advance.

I can see how someone could say Sosúa is a nice town, but Boca Chica? It has a somewhat nice area, but BC isn't what I would call a nice town. The people are nice, but the place doesn't look as nice as the people are. Then there is the garbage situation in BC which quite frankly isn't at that level anywhere in Sosúa.

I do have to agree on the garbage situation. San Pedro was bad too as is the capital. Given that I rarely go down to the beach, the rest of BC doesn't bother me at all.

Can anyone honestly describe Boca Chica as a fairly nice town? Admittedly there are bits of Sosua that aren't too bad if you don't mind all the bars full of cheap hookers at night.

100% agree with NALs. Boca Chica at night is just downright nasty. Lots of very creepy guys and very young prostitutes.
