Required Travel Docs
US Passport REQUIRED
Dominican Republic passport requirements state that a valid passport with at least one blank page for an entry stamp is required to enter the country. If you’re entering as a tourist your passport must be valid up to at least the date of your proposed departure from the Dominican Republic. Some countries require it to be over 6 months from the end of your stay, so to make sure you have no problems, we recommend this rule. Check your passport expiration date!
