Bahamas to DR-Zarpe needed?

I'm sailing from The Bahamas to the Dominican Republic, skipping the Turks and Caicos. Do I need a Zarpe from the Bahamas to enter the DR? Does anyone get a Zarpe from the Bahamas?

Depends where you are heading from the Bahamas but for the DR I would get one.

Officials to see are: Immigration for the Visa, Coast Guard for papers from previous harbour and despacho to next harbour, Department of Drug Enforcement to check for illegal drugs, M-2 which is Intelligence and who goes along with the drug inspection officer and now Customs.

Dominican Republic — Noonsite

It's easy enough to get an outward clearance in the Bahamas, and it will make your life easier in the DR. Without one, they might find reasons to be suspicious.

Bahamas to US - don't bother, they don't care.
