Entry regulations for the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic remains classified as a risk area. The borders of the Dominican Republic are open to the entry of foreigners.

Random COVID-19 rapid tests are carried out at airports on entry. Travellers are obliged to participate in this - unless they can present a negative test result, which must not be older than 5 days before entry. If the test result is positive, a COVID-19 PCR test will be carried out; if it is also positive, the traveller must be placed in quarantine. For this purpose, the Ministry of Health has set up isolation wards where travellers receive the necessary care.

Restrictions in the country
The state of emergency will remain in force until 1 December 2020, with a nationwide curfew from 21.00 to 5.00 Monday to Friday and from 19.00 to 5.00 on Saturdays and Sundays. The scheme has been extended until 1 December 2020 and will then be reviewed.
Hotels are open, but are subject to special distance and hygiene rules and may only accommodate a certain number of guests.

Hygiene rules

  • Wearing a mouth and nose protector and keeping your distance in public is mandatory. When entering public places such as airports, shopping centres, restaurants etc., temperature measurements are taken regularly.
  • Make sure that you follow the AHA rules and also follow the instructions of local authorities. High fines can be imposed for violations of the hygiene regulations.
  • Find out about detailed measures and additional information from the Dominican government.
  • Always follow the instructions of local authorities, also with regard to hygiene measures.
  • In case of COVID-19 symptoms or contact with infected persons, contact the COVID-19 hotline of the Dominican government at the number *462 (Spanish speaking).

The quarantine lasts at least three days for persons without symptoms and 14 days for persons with symptoms. The costs of treatment, quarantine and tests can be transferred from the resort to the guest in accordance with the applicable regulations.
  • The Maldivian government recommends travellers to use the local tracing app TraceEkee.

Restrictions in the country
There is currently a public health emergency declared by the government. The stay of travellers is generally limited to the booked resort. For planned stays in several resorts, a so-called split stay can be applied for at the Maldivian Ministry of Tourism. The capital city of Malé and uninhabited islands cannot currently be visited by tourists from the resorts, with exceptions for Malé for necessary transit overnight stays.

Hygiene rules

At the airport, the usual health precautions (wearing a mask, keeping your distance, washing your hands regularly) must also be observed.
  • Make sure that you follow the AHA rules and also follow the instructions of local authorities. High fines can be imposed for violations of the hygiene regulations.

Adjustment concerning the entry into Cuba

We would like to inform you about an adjustment concerning the entry into Cuba, which the local authorities have issued:

  • For departures after December 1, 2020, new regulations require us to pay the costs of the PCR tests required upon entry. The costs for the tests amount to 25 EUR or 30 US dollars and are to be paid at the check-in or gate on your departure from Frankfurt. Payment is possible in cash or by credit card.
  • You are still required by local regulations to carry a credit card with you upon arrival. Should you wish to use cash on site, we recommend that you carry a sufficient amount of cash in euros or US dollars, as you may not be able to with-draw cash from local ATMs due to Cuba's current monetary policy.

  • From 1 December 2020, a fee of 30 US dollars will be charged to all travellers for the PCR tests, which will be added directly to the price of the flight ticket.
