Tourist card - How will they know?

I Have just booked my flight to PUJ with Thomas Cook which states on fare breakdown that tourist card is included. My question is whether anyone who has arrived at PUJ recently would be able to tell me how will immigration know that the $10 tourist card is already included in your air fare?

They know...end of story. All flights in at this time include the tourist card ($10).

Cheers,

Chances are that your flight attendants will distribute cards onboard to those that purchased the cards as part of their airfare.

Just got to Dominican from UK yesterday. No need to get tourist card before you get here.

Fill in form on plane cabin crew will give you. They are not even charging the 10 dollars per person to anyone when we went through. Departure tax however is 20 USD per person when leaving. Hope that answers your question.

Hi Lee C

Thats a bit of good info, as Chris1978 has asked who did you fly with and what terminal did you arrive at.

Sounds as though Lee C travelled with TUI as he states the departure tax has to be paid and both Thomas Cook and BA include the departure tax in their flights/holidays.

I flew with Tui on Dreamliner. Think there is only 1 terminal / unsure but it's not a massive airport. This is second time been punta cana. Red hot wall to wall sunshine at the mo.
