An article from Telenoticias about requirements for admission to RD

La Dirección General de Migración (DGM) aclara que actúa a sin distinción al momento de permitir la entrada o salida del país de extranjeros de cualquier nacionalidad.

El organismo oficial indica que el proceso de no admisión de extranjeros se encuentra establecido en la Ley General de Migración 285-04, su Reglamento de Aplicación 631-11 y el Manual de Procedimientos de la DGM.

Una persona no admitida es aquella que no cumplió con los requisitos para ingresar a territorio dominicano establecidos en el artículo 15 de la referida Ley, entre estos no poseer suficiente arraigo de permanencia.

En ese sentido, los oficiales de migración en los aeropuertos, puertos marítimos y cruces fronterizos terrestres, se encuentran facultados para no admitir en la República Dominicana a los extranjeros que, ingresando como turistas, no presenten:

Pasaporte al día con más de seis meses de vigencia
Visado o Tarjeta de turista, según corresponda
Boleto aéreo de retorno a su país
Reservación de hotel o dirección de estadía en el país
Solvencia económica para sustentar su permanencia; condiciones sin las cuales, estas personas pudieran constituir una carga para el Estado dominicano.
En otro orden, cabe destacar que la DGM no cobra impuestos a ninguna persona al momento de su entrada al país.

Los 30 dólares son pagados a otra institución por todos los pasajeros dominicanos o extranjeros que entran y salen del territorio nacional, por concepto de tasa aeroportuaria y tasa aeronáutica.

For those reading but have not yet got a grasp of Spanish:

The General Directorate of Migration (DGM) clarifies that it acts without distinction when allowing foreigners of any nationality to enter or leave the country.

The official body indicates that the process of non-admission of foreigners is established in the General Migration Law 285-04, its Application Regulation 631-11 and the Procedures Manual of the DGM.

A person not admitted is one who did not meet the requirements to enter Dominican territory established in article 15 of the aforementioned Law, among these not having sufficient permanency.

In this sense, immigration officers in airports, seaports and land border crossings are authorized not to admit foreigners in the Dominican Republic who, entering as tourists, do not present:

Passport a day with more than six months of validity
Visa or Tourist Card, as appropriate
Air ticket return to your country
Reservation of hotel or address of stay in the country
Economic solvency to sustain its permanence; conditions without which, these people could constitute a burden for the Dominican State.
In another order, it should be noted that the DGM does not charge taxes to any person at the time of entry into the country.

The 30 dollars are paid to another institution by all Dominican or foreign passengers that enter and leave the national territory, by concept of airport tax and aeronautical rate.

Thank you for the translation :cool:

I didn't know that the entry fee was raised from $10 US to $30 US.  A 300 % jump? Perhaps it was a typo?  The Haitian border is different of course.  I too, thank you for the translation.
