Passengers arriving from Spain will have to present a negative PCR or antigen test to enter the Dominican Republic.
According to David Collado, Minister of Tourism, the results of the tests must be a maximum of 72 hours before the flight.
Collado explained on his Twitter account that the measure will take effect starting next July 15th.
The official said that the Civil Aviation Board (JAC) president, José Marte Piantini, will be reporting more details.
At the end of June, the JAC issued a resolution requiring the presentation of a negative PCR test or vaccination card to passengers from 18 countries who wish to enter Dominican territory.
The countries are Australia, the United Kingdom (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales), Indonesia, Iraq, Iran, Kuwait, Ireland, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Senegal, Syria, Sweden, Monaco, Thailand, Tunisia, Brazil, South Africa, and India.
The presentation of the negative PCR test can’t have more than 72 hours before arrival or the vaccination card no more than three weeks after the last dose was placed.
The measure also applies to all passengers from said countries who arrive in Dominican territory from a third country and those who have been in those countries for 14 days or less.
