Once you arrive to Punta Cana International Airport you will disembark the plane and you’ll be directed to the terminal building. On entering the building you will have the opportunity to have your picture taken for purchase on departure. As you enter the immigration hall you will need to purchase a USD$10.00 tourist card. One tourist card must be purchased for each person entering the country including children and infants. These must be paid for in USD$ cash. It is best to have the exact money with you, as often there is no change. Please be aware that there are no
ATM’s, money exchange or bank facilities at this point and credit cards are not accepted.
After purchasing the tourist cards, proceed onwards to passport control. You will need to hand over your tourist cards and passports to the immigration officials and your passport will be
checked and stamped. After passport control you will be directed to the baggage claim area. The belt number’s where you luggage will appear are displayed on screens inside the baggage claim
area. Trolleys are available at this point. Once you have collected your entire luggage you can precede to the customs area.
After clearing customs you will find porters available to assist you with your luggage, be ready to tip for this service. As you exit the terminal building you will see all travel agency reps and taxi drivers.
Have your travel documents handy and look for your transportation company. Some may have your name posted on a sign or just get a deal with a taxi driver. Make sure to see the posted rates at the taxi driver booth.
