According to the Department, the CDC alert system, the Dominican Republic is also the only country in the western hemisphere whose alert level is “level 2: moderate”, as opposed to the rest of the countries that are at “level 3: high” or “level 4: very high”.
It maintains that worldwide, the Centers for Disease Control identifies only 17 other countries or territories with the same moderate level, in terms of control of the epidemiological situation and vaccination processes, among which are Singapore, South Korea, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
The Dominican government has previously established restrictions at Punta Cana, Santiago and Santo Domingo airports allowing only ONE person to accompany travelers inside the airport for arrivals or departures with an additional person authorized to accompany travelers in a vehicle.
Airports remain fully operational, for updated information on arrival requirements, including testing, proof of vaccination and quarantine.
