Buying Tourist Card

I have been trying to buy tourist cards on line and the web site won't come up just keeps saying blank page. Is the site down or something.

I've found the .do site a bit flaky. It didn't work then first time I tried it then when I looked a few weeks later it worked and I bought the tourist cards online for $10 instead of £10 through the UK site.

It's tired, has been working overtime. Don't worry, keep trying and you will get it, some have said this before but it does go through and you will save the time in lines by buying, link provided above. I use google chrome.

I get that buying a tourist card online will save time in a line but if one checks luggage, you still have to wait for that , correct?

The luggage comes out pretty quick. Last time I was there, we bypassed the tourist card line, which was very long, went through immigrations, and our luggage was waiting for us when we got there.

Yes you have to wait for your luggage but it means one less line to wait in. We used the ones we bought online last week, were the only ones that didn't have to wait with 300 other people to pay the 10$. Pretty slick really!
