The Dominican Peso is the only legal currency used in the Dominican Republic, although in tourist areas US Dollars and Euros are accepted. The Peso is a commonly traded currency here in the UK, but some bureau de change and Post Office branches require you to order in advance as they may need to order the currency in. Ordering Dominican Pesos online is usually much quicker and cheaper than buying in the high street.
The main banks in the Dominican Republic including Scotiabank, Banco Progreso, Banco de Reservas, Banco León and Banco Popular all offer ATMs where you can use VISA and MasterCard cards to withdraw additional currency if you require it. However, credit card cloning and identity theft are common so it is generally much safer to use cash or take a prepaid currency card with you as well/instead as these are much safer than a standard UK Bank Card.
You should be on your guard in hotel casinos where games of "progressive keno" are available, especially when you are asked to provide credit card information. Large amounts of money can be lost very quickly and the FCO are aware of a number of cases where British nationals have lost large sums of money playing these games. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) offer official advice to anyone travelling to the Dominican Republic and we recommend you take a look at this before you travel.

All visitors to the Dominican Republic must apply for a Tourist Card before they can enter the country. There are two ways to get one:
Tourist Cards are initially valid for 30 days but you can pay for an extension when you leave the country.
There is a departure tax of $20 USD (or equivalent in DOP) when you leave the country. This is sometimes included in the price of your return air ticket so you should check beforehand with your travel provider.
All meat and dairy products from the European Union are banned in the Dominican Republic so don't be tempted to bring any with you.
