Payment of 10 dollars to Dominican passengers and resident foreigners eliminated
In one month and 15 days, national and foreign air operators that carry out international passenger transport to and from the Dominican Republic will no longer be able to charge US$10.00 for a tourist card on air tickets to Dominicans and foreign residents. Through Resolution 217-2022, the president of the Civil Aviation Board (JAC), José Ernesto Marte Piantini, instructed air operators to make the necessary adjustments to their computer systems in order for the aforementioned position to be eliminated. .
This measure was adopted after an extraordinary meeting held by the organization he leads and whose only point to discuss was to review the payment mechanism of the tourist card issued by the Dominican Republic, to avoid the illegal collection of the US$10 in air tickets for Dominican passengers and foreign residents.
The document indicates that the airlines that carry out international passenger transport to and from the Dominican Republic are responsible for strict compliance with this resolution. The provision is also valid for foreigners residing in the Dominican Republic and its implementation must be effective and efficient within 45 days, according to a statement issued by the JAC.
The information was also notified to the General Directorate of Migration, the Association of AirLines of the Dominican Republic, the Dominican Association of Air Lines and the Legal Representatives of the National and Foreign Air Operators.
