The Tax to be paid upon entry is $10 US per person. The tax to be paid when departing is $20 US per person.

All Canadian tour operators include these costs in the price you paid for your all inclusive vacation with the following exception for Sunwing or Signature Vacations - they do not include it in their vacation package prices and you will therefore have to pay these taxes upon entry and exit.

Hope this helps Harv.

Plus if you are not on a package but booking seperate air fare you will need ot pay the entrance and exit tax. If you are paying this pay it only in USD

We are flying Westjet in a couple of weeks and have booked the hotel separately. On our documents, it says "Dominican Republic Airport Departure Tax, 20.12" therefore I assumed that the only thing we would have to pay was the entrance fee. Can anyone confirm this.

Does Apple include it only if you get the airfare with them, or is it included in their land only prices? We booked airfare seperately from the US.

Kimber - most, if not all US carriers include the departure tax in the various fees and taxes added onto the airfare. At some point during your ticket purchase (if you did it online) there was a page that itemized all the fees for you.
