Airport Fee

I realize that you are charged a $10 "fee" when you arrive in the Dominican Republic - (per person) but do you have to pay another fee to leave? If so, how much.? Thanks.

For flights originating from gateways in the USA, your $20 departure fee is included in the fare basis of your ticket, but NOT the $10 entry fee, which you will pay at the kiosk as soon as you go into the airport terminal building in Punta Cana.

OK - so we're leaving from Orlando, Fl - that means that we just pay $10 total for the entrance - nothing to leave D.R. right? Thanks all for the replies.

We booked through CheapCaribbean, and flew out of Detroit. We only paid the $10 entry fee per person...nothing to leave D.R.

Orlando is indeed a USA gateway, therefore, your $20 per person departure fee has been pre-paid and was included in your base fare. You will pay nothing additional to depart Punta Cana.

You will only have to pay the $10 per person entry fee once you arrive in Punta Cana.

we went a few months ago to Punta Cana, and we flew with Sunwing from Toronto, Canada. we were told that Sunwing is a carrier that does NOT include these taxes into their ticket prices; therefore, we had to pay the $10.00 per person as the Entrance Fee when arriving .... AND we had to pay the $20.00 per person as Departure Tax when leaving.

That is correct. Only Sunwing in Canada does NOT include the $20 departure tax in the air ticket.
