Abstract: In this paper we show that Dirichlet heat kernel estimates for a class of (not necessarily symmetric) Markov processes are stable under non-local Feynman-Kac perturbations. This class of processes includes, among others, (reflected) symmetric stable-like processes in closed $ d$-sets in $ \mathbb{R}^d$, killed symmetric stable processes, censored stable processes in $ C^{1, 1}$ open sets, as well as stable processes with drifts in bounded $ C^{1, 1}$ open sets. These two-sided estimates are explicit involving distance functions to the boundary.
