Dominican Republic International Travel Information (state.gov)

You will be required to have a valid passport to travel for this event.  Please make sure your passport is valid and up to date prior to departure.  Passports must be valid for the period of stay in the Dominican Republic with at least one blank page for an entry stamp.

IMPORTANT BOOKING NOTE: Once the team has sent you your flight itinerary, it is important you approve your itinerary by replying to yjohnsen@meetprestige.com. Your air reservations will not be ticketed unless the travel team has received your written authorization within the deadline given.

Reservations that require a 24-hour ticketing will be noted on your itinerary. Every attempt will be made to secure airline reservations as close to your preferred request as possible at the time your registration is received, and your itinerary is approved, based on flight availability. E-tickets (electronic tickets) will be issued.

Airfare increases incurred due to travel outside of group dates, specific airline requests, or changes will be your responsibility. Flight itineraries and fares cannot be guaranteed until tickets are issued. Tickets cannot be issued until your email approval has been received, within the deadline given.

In compliance with airline rules, once a ticket is issued, it is non-refundable, and no name changes are allowed. In addition, please note the following:

Any changes/cancellations made to the outbound flight must be made prior to the original departure date for the ticket to be valid (i.e., if you miss your flight and do not contact the airline, your ticket will not have any value for future use).

Additional airline fees will apply for changes confirmed after your ticket has been issued.

Same-day standbys are allowed on most airlines based on availability. A fee may be incurred, and you will also be responsible for any additional airfare.

Seating Preferences
Seating preference will be assigned wherever possible and communicated during your booking.

Luggage Allowance
The majority of airline services now charge fees for each piece of baggage checked. Each attendee is allowed (1) checked bag. Please check with your travel concierge when booking your travel to ensure appropriate airline policies. Charges vary depending on the airline. For carry-on baggage, most airlines allow one piece, not to exceed 40 pounds, plus either a purse, briefcase, laptop, or camera case. All carry-on baggage must either fit under your seat or in the overhead compartment. Any piece of baggage that exceeds size and weight limitations will be subject to additional charges, which will be your responsibility. If you have any questions, please contact events@corebts.com or the specific carrier(s) on which you are traveling

Carry-on Restrictions
TSA and their security partners conducted extensive explosives testing and determined that liquids, aerosols, and gels, in limited quantities, are safe to bring aboard an aircraft.  The one bag limit per traveler limits the total amount each traveler can bring.  Consolidating the bottles into one bag and x-raying them separately from the carry-on bag enables security officers to quickly clear the items.
