While World Tourism Reactivates, The Dominican Republic Maintains the lead with a Responsible Opening Strategy

The Ministry of Tourism ensures that the country’s tourist centers are kept open under strict protocols to guarantee the safety of visitors.

While countries advance in the vaccination processes and world tourism begins to reactivate after a historic fall in 2020, the Dominican Republic maintains the lead and reaffirms its leadership position in Latin America, consolidating itself as a world reference recognized by specialized international agencies thanks to its responsible recovery strategy deployed in a sustained manner since September 2020.

The set of measures contained in the plan has ensured that the country’s tourist poles remain safe places for visitors, with a positivity rate close to zero in the random tests applied at the main airports to incoming passengers.

Among these measures that remain in place are the vaccination of 100% of the tourism service personnel, compliance with health protocols, the elimination of the requirement to submit PCR tests to enter the country, the application of random tests and the implementation of the Health Assistance Plan that covers COVID-19 for all tourists who go to hotels, as well as the implementation of certified protocols throughout the value chain.

The Ministry of Tourism reported last Tuesday, June 1st, the maintenance of the actions contained in the plan and the extension of the time of tourist assistance coverage until July 30th, 2021.

These measures have been complemented with an aggressive strategy to promote the country, agreements to maintain the most important routes and create new routes, and identification of strategic allies in the value chain. “Additionally, the country is among the first 5 countries in the region for the advance rate of vaccination, which allows it to continue with a policy open to tourism,” says a statement from the Ministry.

Anticipating the effect of a possible new worldwide strain, the Dominican Government reinforced security measures trying to reduce the chances of an increase in infections, as well as the health of the population.

Since December, tourism in the Dominican Republic shows recovery indicators, with May being the best month in terms of arrivals in the last 12 months, which confirms the confidence of tourists and tour operators in the measures adopted by the country.

The sector represents one of the main engines of the Dominican economy. The country has the presence of more than 70 hotel chains, has agreements with more than 100 airlines and the main world tour operators.
