Entry Fee Rising to $15 effective now

Just heard and read that the tourist entry fee was increasing March, 02, 2009 to $15. For those of us who booked our flight already…will they charge us the extra $5 at the airport now or will they allow us to still pay the $10 that it would have been when we booked??

Any word about this…or has anyone been there or back and noticed the increase??

Had posted pretty much the same question the other day. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s too early to tell. We leave march 29th and our entry fee is already paid as part of our ticket so no way of knowing if they will be looking for that extra 5 dollars. I’m going prepared just in case.

I checked yesterday with the Dominican Republic Embassy here in Ottawa:

hey stated the entry tax is still 10.00 USD if not included in your package. I also heard the increase is for our friends over the pond in Britain but I could be mistaken.
