From the Dominican Republic to Germany
24 April 2021 Green light from Germany: The Dominican Republic has been taken off the list of COVID-19 Risk Areas.
The good news comes at the right time. On Saturday, 24 April the German National Health Institute Robert-Koch-Institut announced that the Dominican Republic is no longer categorized a risk area. This decision is said to reflect the latest low infection figures in the country and the successful vaccination policy of the Dominican government.
The German Government also relieved its travel warning for the Dominican Republic.

From Germany to the Dominican Republic
Travellers from Germany entering the Dominican Republic are not facing any special restrictions due to COVID-19 safety measures either.
Like all travellers, they have to complete an e-ticket prior to entry. Upon entry, temperature will be taken; random testing is possible. Alternatively, travelers can present a negative PCR-test not older than 72 hours; though this is not required. Positively tested travelers have to leave their contact details and have to quarantine.
