Requirements for cellular devices in Dominican Republic

INDOTEL has recently published it will start enforcing Homologation and Customs control of cellphones imported into Dominican Republic for commercial purposes.

This determination involves two processes:
• Standard Homologation: Type Approval for RF equipment.
• Letter of No Objection: Required by Customs in order to release cellphone shipments.

While this isn’t a new process, we would like to remind our clients that both documents (Certificate and Letter) will be needed when importing mobile devices into Dominican Republic.

We can certainly assist in getting both the Homologation and the Letter of no Objection required by Customs.
