Can i give my tourist card that i bought on-line to a friend

Can i give my tourist card that i bought on-line to a friend? I bought 2 in advance, and didn't know Air Transat covers the tourist card in the packages ( i usually fly Sun Wing and it's not covered).

My friend who is going to Purta Plata the day after i leave is flying Sun Wing - can i give him my cards?

My name is on top of one of them, but my girlfriends name is nowhere on the documents. Would this matter?

I'm sure its ok. What they check is that you bought the card.

If the worst scenario, your friend will need to buy one on the airport, $10 each

Yes, they are transferrable and good for a year after they are purchased online.

That is different experience to my four that I purchased a couple of months ago. Perhaps you name is on it when you purchase just one. Did you only purchase one?

With my four there were no names, just different bar codes. We (wife and self) followed the left hand channel marked Visa holders and locals. Once near the immigration booths, we just gave the cards to young man standing there. He gave them a cursory glance and directed us to an immigration booth and our passport was stamped and we were on our way.

Exactly the same happened with my married daughter and friend around 10 days ago. Very quick and easy and in both cases we were in our apartments within 50 minutes.

We will do the same next year when we come for another two months.

yes I bought only one at a time because it did not ask me for the name for the second person. I thought this was strange so guess they will be ok to use them.

You can purchase your Tourist Cards online through this official website.

https://www.dgii.gov.do/Tturistaweb/

Once payment has been finalized you will get sent an email with a PDF which you download and print off your tourist cards.
