Does AutoGate function at POP or just the others?Dominican citizens can use AutoGate with a Dominican passport (it needs to be codified once at either Las Américas or Cibao and they charge a one time fee for this, then the same passport can be used free of charge until it expires) in both, leaving and arriving. Since it's all electronic and the whole process takes like 2 to 5 seconds, passports aren't stamped. That doesn't mean there are no records of the entry or exit. It comes up when the passport identity code is entered in an immigration computer (usually scanned by an immigration officer) in the DR and abroad. It's basically impossible to travel internationally with no records of passing through immigration, whether it's the traditional way with getting in line and seeing an immigration officer or through AutoGate which never has a line and an immigration officer is never seen.
If your bags are carry-ons only, you're literally out of the terminal within 10 minutes from stepping out of the airplane.
True that all the ins and outs are stored in a computer regardless of stamps. I found that out during my citizenship process.
