Because inquisitive minds wanted to know, I wrote to Signature Vacations last night. AND they responded this morning…
Dominican Republic - Tourist Card & Departure Tax fees
Hello, We are trying to sort out some information… If we book a trip with Signature Vacations, is the $10 Tourist Card fee and the $20 Departure Tax for the Dominican Republic, included in the price of our package?? We realize that Signature Vacations is now affiliated with SUNWING & Sunwing does not include those fees. BUT, other Tour Operators (Air Canada, West Jet, Air Transat, Sunquest) do include the fees. Our booking hinges on your response… Thanking you in advance,
Dear Ruth ,
Thank you for contacting The Sunwing Travel Group.
The Dominican Republic Tourist Card and Departure Tax both have to be paid locally upon arrival and return in US Currency.
