Santo Domingo.- Most Venezuelans who come to the Dominican Republic as tourists don’t do so for pleasure and instead to benefit from the quotas in dollars which they can withdraw from ATM machines at airports by using the "traveler coupon" which form part of the Venezuelan government’s currency regulations.

Listin.com.do reports long lines of Venezuelans are seen daily at the Las Americas Airport terminal seeking ATMs to withdraw dollar within the quotas established by Caracas for those who visit the Dominican Republic with a tourist status.

In Dominican Republic’s case Venezuela’s National Foreign Trade Center CENCOEX issues a "traveler coupon" with a dollar amount to each passenger, which can be withdrawn upon arrival at the airport.

Many visitors have been stranded in the country without money to pay their lodging expenses or for the departure tax dollars to return to Venezuela, when their credit cards failed to respond when introduced into an ATM.

That sounds a little bogus. Why spend at least $300.00USD on plane fare just to withdraw, how much... a thousand.? What's the limit on withdrawals.?
If you're rich but the government won't allow access to your money, why not just move out of the country.? Is it that simple or is there a lot more to this.?
It's a real shame that two desgraciados in Maduro and Chavez, bankrupted a great economy.! ..Proving once again that Communism doesn't, and will never work.!
On a related subject, I sure hope Raul Castro sticks to his guns and never allow the country's economy to be privatize. This way, we in DR will keep on reaping the lion's share of tourists' dollars, and they can stay poor for eternity.

He definitely is entertaining. Especially when he tries to be clever...which he tends to fail miserably...lol. I thought that people that tended to trolled were a clever bunch. I guess our friend is the exception that proves the rule.
