To enter the Dominican Republic you must arrive at a "Puerto Habilitado". This is a port that has Immigration, Coast Guard, Customs and other officials available.
On the North Shore this includes: Manzanillo, Luperon and Puerto Plata. If you arrive at Monticristi, they will send to Manzanillo for Immigration for you.
On the East Coast: Santa Barbara de Samana, Cap Cana and Punta Cana.
On the South Coast: Las Salinas, Santo Domingo, Boca Chica and Casa de Campo.
