Ferry Service between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic

El Viajero Digital [The Digital Traveler] reports that, now that ferry service between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic has resumed [see previous post Puerto Rico-Dominican Republic ferry to resume March 16], the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) bureau has issued important tips for travelers between both Caribbean countries.

To facilitate the exchange of travelers and to avoid inconveniences, Marcelino Borges, director of field operations of CBP in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, stressed the need to have all required travel documents for entering the Dominican Republic and returning to U.S. territory.  U.S. citizens must travel with a passport, passport card, enhanced driver’s license, or documents issued by the CBP’s Trusted Traveler Programs, which provide expedited travel for pre-approved, low risk travelers.

    Thank you
