For Canadian travelers. the $10US for entering DR is included in your package. It's called the tourist card.

Many tickets include the $20 exit fee. You might want to check your ticket. If not have $20 in USD ready.

Hi! I was in POP in April and the 20us departure tax was included...

The tour company Nolitours and Air Transat are included in your ticket..

But best check with your travel agent....We are off this Friday to GOM for 1 week......

Safe Holidays!!!

Air Canada, AirTransat, Sunquest, Conquest, Skyservice, Signature, all pre-collect the departure tax. Sunwing does not. But if you want to be safe, keep $20 aside for the trip home. In Puerto Plata the departure tax is collected at Gate no. 10 in the departure lounge.
