Necessary Documents & Travel Requirements

Before traveling to Casa de Campo, make sure you have all your travel documents in order. In applying for or renewing passports, visas, or other related documents, you may experience some delays. Before arriving at the airport, check in for your flight through the airline’s app or website, or print your itinerary and boarding passes in advance.

When packing, don’t forget to add a portable prevention kit that includes disposable and reusable masks, hand sanitizer, soap, sanitizing wipes, tissues, gloves, and a thermometer. So you can use them during your journey.

If you are purchasing private travel insurance, be sure to check the company’s policies on cancellations related to COVID-19 and other related health situations.

If your destination country requires a negative COVID-19 test to enter, as of January 26, 2021, complimentary viral antigen tests are being offered to all international visitors staying at a hotel in the Dominican Republic. This test complies with the travel protocols of the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and must be administered within 72 hours prior to your departure.

At the airport

All Dominican airports are enforcing mask usage and social distancing measures to protect all passengers and employees, as well as temperature checks at many points. Only remove your mask if a safety or immigration official requires it.

Even with updated signage and supervising personnel, know that queues, screenings and procedures may take a longer time. It is recommended to arrive with enough time to deal with any eventuality. Be patient and kind with everyone, as we all are getting used to travel in the new normal.

About COVID-19 Testing

By indications of the Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic, most travelers do not need to present a negative COVID-19 test upon arrival to enter the Dominican Republic. However, travelers who present a vaccination card or a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival will be exempted from random breath tests at the airports and other ports of entry. All passengers must go through temperature checks upon arrival.

All passengers arriving from Australia, Brazil, Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Iran, Ireland, Kuwait, Monaco, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Senegal, South Africa, Sweden, Syria, Thailand, Tunisia, and United Kingdom (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales), as well as the Kingdom of Spain, must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than 72 hours prior to arrival or a vaccination card no less than 3 weeks after the last dose was administered. For passengers arriving from the Kingdom of Spain, a negative antigen COVID-19 test is also accepted.

More than 4.6 million Dominicans have completed their COVID-19 vaccination record with two doses, and more than 700,000 people have received a third booster shot. In the tourism sector, 100% of employees are vaccinated, so this means you will be as safe as possible during your stay with us.

About Cancellations

One of the most important lessons the new normal has taught us is to be as flexible as possible with our plans. If you test positive for COVID-19 before your scheduled travel date, we recommend that you stay home and postpone your vacation plans while you recover. Casa de Campo offers 100% free cancellation on all individual reservations, so if you need to wait a little longer to visit paradise we can help you change or cancel your dates without penalty.
