Let's hope they are able to iron this out in the next couple of weeks. It's unfortunate for all the super bowl attendees that this wasn't resolved prior to this weekend.

I went thru before the Super Bowl, even with fingerprints took less than 5 minutes. Biggest factor is if more then 1 plane arrives at the same time, especially the big charters from Europe the massive amount of people at 1 time is what backs it up.

They are definitely fingerprinting (all fingers on both hands) when you arrive .............. And don't think for one second that they are not sharing their information with amerikkkan authorities. Amerikkka has a very good law enforcement / family and criminal court relationship with the Dominican Republic  ...... so travelers beware.

  When you say "travelers" beware.....don't you mean "criminals" beware?

It's an incovience but once its done its done. but not a big deal from my perspective. Just make sure your shit is straight before you Decide to leave the country otherwise you will have some problems.
People keep asking if I'm back and I haven't really had an answer, but yeah, I'm thinking I'm back.

I could care less what info retained or shared. Its only an issue to me if people are getting refused entry when nobody knows the specific reason. If theres a list of offences that prohibit someones entry it should be public knowledge as it is when travelling to other countries. I know at times, its to the customs agents discretion but overall there should be clear knowledge as to who can't get into a specific country. This would also be across the whole island, not just certain provinces. Imagine someone taking a family vacation to Punta Cana or even to a resort in Puerto Plata and now all of a sudden getting refused. The Caribbean as a whole has never been an area to not allow people with a criminal record to enter. If new laws have been implemented it should be made known to prospective tourists through the government.

Unless others denied entry are keeping quite, only one person reportedly has been turned away.

@nickmirr thanks for the update. Wasn't sure and also haven't heard anything since the thread first started. I assume its just to keep in their own database for a number of reasons.

@ All     If you watch when they swipe your passport it pulls your photo up on the computer. It probably is just matching finger prints to photo and passport if have entered before.

@Sean, you bring up a good point. When they swipe my passport I have seen my photos pop up. I have yet to be fingerprinted there yet, but it's probably just an added measure to ensure people aren't entering the country with false passports.

I am sure he got fingerprinted and something came up.  You cannot enter another country and refuse to be fingerprinted that will raise all kind of red flags.  They will not send you back on that plane until they know exactly who you are for safety and awareness. Customs can do a lot for the sake of security like taking and searching your phone and computer without a warrant. Foreign country will not let you refuse to do something and then just let you leave without knowing who you are.

As this post shows Mike Tyson was recently denied entry into Chile because of a past crime.  How long ago was that:

Maybe dude had some issues there in the past, and they refused him entry because prints matched those he had in a Dominican jail. I know countries share information.  But not all do, and not all have bilateral extradition treaties. From my knowledge they are fingerprinting all who enter, not only Americans. Euros and Canadians as well (and every other country). Children??? LOL...I don't know...A country has the right to know who is coming in, I have zero issue with that. Dominican has been a longtime safe haven for people on the lam because until 2015 they didn't have bilateral extradition with the US. They still don't with other countries. So I don't think its a conspiracy of inner sharing of information, rather just a more secure measure to know who is in the country matched to a passport. And if your prints show up on a DR crime scene, well...now they know who done it! lol
