The Dominican Republic (DR) Ministry of Tourism is offering complimentary viral antigen testing to all international visitors staying at a hotel in the Dominican Republic. The complimentary viral test will be administered at hotels across the country to travelers who qualify for the Free Health Coverage Plan. While antigen test is free to travelers who qualify, there is a small out-of-pocket fee to cover the cost of processing the test. Some hotels have decided to absorb this cost, others will charge the guest a small fee, and a few are not part of the program. Please contact your hotel directly to make an appointment or discuss their specific process.
The antigen tests will be performed by technical health personnel and the test results will be certified by the Dominican Republic's Ministry of Health. This complimentary offering is valid for all international tourists arriving via commercial airlines and staying at a hotel as part of the country's free Health Coverage Plan - valid through March 31, 2021.
For tourists staying in vacation rental villas rented through e.g. Palmera Villas, Airbnb, VRBO, etc., antigen and PCR tests are available at any of the local hospitals and medical clinics. See testing facilities as outlined by the United States Embassy.
