The Dominican Republic government issues an online document called an e-Ticket, designed to track tourists who enter and exit the country. Each and every person who wishes to visit the Dominican Republic must complete two application forms for e-Tickets. These are for:
The e-Ticket issued by the Dominican Republic government is a legal requirement and anyone failing to obtain an e-Ticket is likely to not be allowed to enter or exit the country. If a visitor knows both the dates they are due to enter and depart the Dominican Republic, then they can use one application for both e-Tickets.
Please note: An e-Ticket is not the same as or designed as a replacement for a visa. You must make sure that if you are a citizen of a country that requires a visa to enter the Dominican Republic, you obtain both an e-Ticket and a visa. These should then be presented at the relevant security and immigration office when you enter the Dominican Republic.
IMPORTANT: The Dominican e-Ticket is not a visa. If you are a citizen of a country that needs visa to enter the Dominican Republic, you will need to present both e-Ticket and Visa at the port of entry to the Dominican Republic.

The Dominican e-Ticket combines three documents in one:

An application for an e-Ticket can be submitted for an individual, for a family or group of up to 6 people if travelling in the same group.
The application process is a quick and easy online application form and within hours, you will receive an e-mail containing your personalised e-Ticket with a QR code. You can then choose to save it on your electronic device or print a copy to present when requested at the port of entry or exit.

Our top tips for completing your Dominican Republic e-Ticket
The number one piece of advice we give every traveller is to make sure that you understand the correct rules and procedures for entering/exiting a country. It can mean the difference between entering the country and enjoying your visit, or potentially being refused entry and returning to your own country.
Other helpful tips include:
- If you are renting a property whilst staying in the Dominican Republic, please make sure that you get the full address details from the host.
- If you are travelling with children, then please note that children do not need to complete the Customs section of the form. This is for adults to complete and you will still get a QR code that covers your family.
- Once you have completed the form and received your e-Ticket, you can print a copy or take a screenshot to use when you enter or exit the Dominican Republic.
- Should you need to make any alterations to your application, please check the application code issued when first completing the form.
- If you will be arriving in the Dominican Republic via a non-commercial vessel, a private flight, cruise ship or ferry then you are not required to complete this e-Ticket. In one of these scenarios, the Customs Declaration and International Embarkation/Disembarkation forms are accepted.
