Let me start by saying that TRS Turquesa in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic is absolutely beautiful.
Ok, I woke up at 4 a.m. for my 7 a.m. Delta flight from Jacksonville, to Atlanta, then to Punta Cana. The plane was a little over half full, and Delta is still keeping those center aisle seats blocked. The layover in Atlanta was about an hour. I arrived in Punta Cana at 2 p.m. Before we landed, the flight attendants gave me 4 forms to fill out on the plane, and I’m glad that I did!
I thought that the new online form was going to replace these paper forms, but not so.
Be advised that the immigration agent didn’t even want to see the QR code generated by this new online application: https://www.travelweek.ca/news/travellers-to-dominican-republic-must-sign-this-new-online-form/
I’m very glad that I did complete the 4 forms on the plane!
When you arrive at the Punta Cana airport, you actually come down a ramp on to the tarmac. You are then directed in to the airport and head directly to immigration.
Considering I flew in to Punta Cana on a Tuesday, I was surprised to see how many people, mostly tourists, were moving through the immigration line. I will say the line moved very quickly and the agents were professional and friendly. You will need to put your fingers on a computer pad for recording your fingerprints!
Just like when you are walking through the airport terminal in Cancun, you will see many transportation vendors. It’s absolutely critical to print out your transportation form you get from the hotel to avoid any confusion!
TRS Turquesa is just amazing, and I’m still processing all the pictures, but here’s a YouTube video of my superior suite! Stay tuned for more updates from TRS Turquesa and TRS Cap Cana!
