Covid-19 testing in the Dominican Republic

Effective January 26, all airline passengers to the United States ages two years and older must provide a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within three calendar days of travel.  (This includes PCR or antigen tests.  Please note this must be a viral test and not an antibody test.)  Alternatively, travelers to the U.S. may provide documentation from a licensed health care provider of having recovered from COVID-19 in the 90 days preceding travel.  Check the CDC website for additional information and Frequently Asked Questions.   

COVID-19 TESTING:  Local service providers in the Dominican Republic can administer the COVID-19 test, with results typically available within 72 hours.  The Embassy cannot administer or pay for tests.  The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability, reputation, or quality of services provided by the entities on this list.  Some clinics or labs on this list may offer “home visits” throughout the region at an additional cost. Please contact the clinic or lab directly for details.

Note: The required PCR and antigen (viral) tests can be performed by any authorized laboratory in the Dominican Republic. The information provided here is only a guide and not an exhaustive list of all laboratories that can perform the required tests in the country. Please check with laboratories directly to inquire about costs, and to request an appointment.
