Do you need a passport to go from Haiti to the Dominican Republic?

Tourists will need to enter the Dominican Republic with a passport that is valid at the time of their visit. The only exception is if you are carrying an ID card issued by the government of the Dominican Republic.

It's best to check with the relevant embassy about what documents they require to process a visa application. But generally, you'll need proof of identity (such as a driver's license or passport), proof of residence (either a rental agreement or bill), and proof of ability to return home (such as a return flight ticket).

The Dominican Republic is a member of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) so many of its citizens are granted travel passports which include an exemption from visa requirements for tourism purposes.

However, since there is no direct connection between Haiti and the Dominican Republic, any Haitian trying to enter the country would be required to obtain a visa from the nearest Dominican consulate.

All US nationals intending to enter or transit through the Dominican Republic must have a valid US passport. For further information on entrance and exit restrictions, tourists should contact the Dominican Republic's Embassy in the United States. The embassy's telephone number is 1-202-456-4444.

Dominican passports are issued by the Dirección General de Migración y Naturalización (Migrations and Naturalization Department). At the time of writing, the cost was $110 for an adult passport. Children under 18 years of age pay half price. The typical processing time is 6-8 weeks.

If you lose your passport, you can apply for a replacement at any American Embassy or Consulate. In addition, if it is lost or stolen, you can report the incident to the police. If you wait too long to report the loss or theft, however, you may not be able to claim compensation.

The Dominican Republic does not require its citizens to carry their passports when traveling abroad. But if they do so, they will be treated as invalid documents and could result in being denied boarding on incoming flights or other travel inconveniences.

The only foreign country that requires its citizens to have a passport to enter is Haiti.

To enter the Dominican Republic, all US citizens must have a valid passport. If you intend to remain for longer than 30 days, you must first get a travel visa (online through the Dominican Embassy).

You can only bring in with you items that are considered "personal effects" by the Department of Homeland Security. These include:

• Your birth certificate

• Proof of US citizenship such as a driver's license or state ID card

• Evidence of legal residency such as a pay stub from a US employer or a rental agreement with a US address

• If you're applying for a tourist visa, evidence of sufficient funds to return home (usually cash or credit card statements) and an invitation letter from a company or individual willing to sponsor you.

• If you plan to work in the Dominican Republic, there is no need for a visa. But if you want to stay longer than 30 days, you will need to apply for one online through the Dominican Embassy.

• Be sure to keep your passport secure during your stay - store it in a safe place where only you can access it.

• If it is lost, stolen or destroyed we cannot issue a new one.
