RESTRICTIONS:

Entry and departure allowed 24 hours a day but tankers movement are restricted to daylight hours only.

STOWAWAYS:

Unfortunately, all ports within the Dominican Republic are facing drastic problems related to stowaways. The unauthorized boarding of vessels, while at roads, or in port, are the most serious hazard you shall have to face. Prior to sailing the vessel will be boarded by a team of Dom. Rep.
