The United States Department of State eliminated the travel alert to the Dominican Republic for racism issued on November 9, 2022. However, it maintains an active warning for crime, sexual assault, and homicide at level 2 for Santo Domingo.

Congressmen Adriano Espaillat and María Salazar broke the news through Twitter, where they stated that the Caribbean country should never have been accused of racism.

“Following my requests to Sec. Blinken and @StateDept, a new travel advisory have been issued for the Dominican Republic, which removed the previous alert that @RepMariaSalazar and I opposed,” Espaillat wrote.
