Please read each of the sections below carefully. They provide important information about your Operation Wallacea expedition in Dominica. Should you require further assistance please do not hesitate to contact your nearest Operation Wallacea office.
You need to land at Douglas Charles Airport (DOM)on the Sunday afternoon before your expedition starts.
You need to depart from Douglas Charles Airport (DOM) after 1000hrs on the Saturday your expedition ends.
When you arrive at Douglas Charles Airport you will met by an Opwall representative and transferred to the expedition site. This journey takes around 1.5 hours. On the Saturday at the end of your expedition you will be transferred from Fort Shirley to Douglas Charles Airport for your homeward flight.
The internal travel package will be arranged once we have the details of your international flights.
As part of the internal travel package it is possible to arrange additional nights in Dominica before and after your expedition, and the relevant airport transfers. However, this will be at an additional cost – please contact us for more details.
Please ensure when booking your international flights that the cost of your ticket includes hold luggage.
School groups that have chosen a fully inclusive expedition package do not need to book international flights or internal travel. Operation Wallacea will be in contact with the group leader directly and will provide you with a fully inclusive quote for your international flights, internal travel and expedition costs.
Schools also have the option of having Opwall search for the best flight deal for the group and once the school group leader has approved the purchase, the tickets are then bought by Opwall at cost on behalf of the school. A flight booking fee per person is charged for this approach. Details of the flights for the group will be entered onto the portal by the Opwall staff booking the flights.
Alternatively, if the school has reliable travel partners then they can book the flights themselves and just pay Opwall for the expedition and internal travel costs. Under this scenario the group leader needs to enter the flight details through the Opwall portal and email a copy of the itinerary or E-ticket to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be aware that your passport must have at least 6 months validity (period before expiry) at the time of your arrival into Dominica. Failure to have at least 6 months validity on your passport will ensure denial of entry into Dominica.
If you are a UK, US, Canadian or Commonwealth citizen you do not need a visa to enter Dominica. Other nationals will need to check with the Dominican Embassy. http://www.dominica.gov.dm/services/passports-and-travel-documents-non-nationals/124-do-i-need-a-visa-to-enter-into-dominica
