The Dominican Republic (DR) Ministry of Tourism assures visitors that all of its cities, tourism, and resort areas are conducting normal business operations. Also, the DR government, consulates, and embassies are working diligently with the international community on Haiti earthquake relief. Millions of Dominicans have donated time, money, supplies, and expertise to help Haiti in these critical hours of need.
All of the tourist areas, hotels, resorts, airports, and seaports are open and receiving visitors. The DR experienced no damage from the quake or its aftershocks. Major tourism regions Punta Cana and La Romana on the east coast, as well as Samana and Puerto Plata along the north coast are welcoming winter season tourists from all over the world.
The southern region of the DR has been a stable staging area for the Haiti relief effort and a reliable alternative route into Haiti. Three key airports and a roadway in the DR’s southern region are being used to receive international relief supplies through mostly rural areas of the DR not frequented by visitors. The DR government has stationed military, police, and immigration officials along the DR border reinforcing relief efforts to help Haiti. The DR has strong border control permitting only crossings for humanitarian reasons, while also sending critical supplies, equipment, medical experts, and millions of dollars for food and relief kitchens directly to Port-au-Prince.
