Overflight Permits in the Dominican Republic’s International Operations
In the Dominican Republic, overflight permits are not required for any type of flight operations. Whether you are conducting private non-revenue flights or most charter (non-scheduled commercial) flights, you can fly through Dominican airspace without the need for an overflight permit. Even for charter flights with 12 or fewer passenger seats, which are categorized as “Air Taxi,” you do not need a permit. However, for charter flights with more than 12 passenger seats, a landing permit is required, and operators should allow for a lead time of 48 hours to obtain it. It is important to note that this permit is essentially a notification to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), and no additional documentation needs to be submitted.
Landing Permits in the Dominican Republic's International Operations
Landing permits are typically not required for private non-revenue flights or most charter flights in the Dominican Republic. The exception is for charter flights with more than 12 passenger seats, which do require a landing permit. This permit must be requested with a lead time of 48 hours. For charter flights with 12 or fewer passenger seats, classified as “Air Taxi,” there is no need for a landing permit. The process for obtaining landing permits is facilitated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) during regular working hours, which are Monday to Friday from 0800 to 1700 local time. However, in certain cases, the CAA may consider last-minute permit requests at their discretion. It’s important to mention that air ambulance flights do not require permits for entry or exit from the country, as long as flight and passenger information is provided.
Please note that permits issued are valid for a duration of 24 hours. Permit revisions are only necessary if there are changes in the flight’s departure date, or if there are modifications to the departure point or the destination after leaving the Dominican Republic. To request a charter permit, operators must provide the following documentation: airworthiness and registration certificates, worldwide insurance, air operator certificate (AOC), operations specifications (D-085), a full schedule for the flight into and out of the country, and the number of passengers on board for both arrival and departure. Upon arrival in the Dominican Republic, passengers must complete immigration and customs forms. The ground handler will assist in completing these forms based on the information provided in advance. Passport validity requirements stipulate that passports must be valid for the length of stay. Flight plans must be filed by the local handler at least one hour before departure.
