If you are a national of a country in the following list, you will need a Tourist Card and a valid passport to enter the Dominican Republic. A Tourist Card can be obtained on arrival in the Dominican Republic (US$10), however, it is strongly recommended that you obtain the card in advance from your nearest embassy or consulate in order to avoid long queues at the airport.
Nationals of the following countries do not need either a Tourist Card or a Tourist Visa to enter the country: Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Israel, Japan, Peru, South Korea and Uruguay.
If your country is not listed, but you are a resident of the United Kingdom or currently hold a valid visa to enter the United States, Canada or any European Union country, you may also enter the Dominican Republic with a Tourist Card and a valid passport.
If your country is not listed, and if you do not hold a valid visa for the United Kingdom, United States, Canada or any European Union country, you will need to obtain a Tourist Visa. Please contact your nearest Dominican Republic Embassy or Consulate as listed in the following link as soon as possible to find out how to obtain a visa for entry into the Dominican Republic.
The National Council for Climate Change, Government of Dominican Republic, through the Dominican Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will be able to provide a visa support letter to participants who require a letter as part of their visa application (please find out the requirements in the first instance).
In addition, the National Council for Climate Change will seek to obtain visa waiver from the Dominican Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for participants to help with entry, particularly for those participants that require a visa and do not have a Dominican Republic Embassy or Consulate in their country. To be considered for visa waiver, please submit your details through the link included in the logistics email. If you have not received the email, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Although the National Council for Climate will endeavour to do its best to obtain visa waiver, there is no guarantee that this will be approved, and participants are recommended to apply through their nearest Dominican Republic Embassy or Consulate as soon as possible.
