The Dominican Republic is open for tourism and Covid-19 safety protocols in Punta Cana are in effect for all travelers. Hotels are operating in lower occupancy, excursions have implemented hygiene protocols and the airports are measuring the temperatures of all arriving passengers. Those are just a few of the regulations to prevent the spread of Coronavirus in the Dominican Republic and to protect travelers during their vacation in Punta Cana. Furthermore, the government has implemented a tourism recovery plan, which underlines the importance of tourism for the Dominican Republic and proves, that the borders will remain open. There is even free Covid-19 insurance in Punta Cana issued by the Dominican government and some resorts are offering free PCR tests.
When flying to the Dominican Republic during Covid-19, you can expect the safety guidelines most of the airlines have implemented. The main change compared to pre-Covid travel is the mandatory use of face-covering masks during the flight, but also catering has been restricted by most airlines. In-flight magazines have been removed and deep-cleaning protocols after every flight have been implemented – all to secure passenger’s safety and to avoid getting infected with Coronavirus during the flight.
While all these measures don’t sound too appealing, traveling in the end is much more relaxed than it seems to be. Thanks to the (usually) low number of bookings, you have enough space on the plane. As regulations and guidelines due to Covid-19 are changing frequently, please check with your preferred airline on their measures regarding Coronavirus.
