What are the requirements to enter Jamaica?
All entrants to Jamaica must fill out a pre travel health authorisation registration. This is in addition to the customs and immigration form. Currently residents from US, Brazil, Mexico and the Dominican Republic also need to supply a negative Covid test taken 9 days before they arrive in Jamaica. When these are submitted as part of the authorisation registration, the government will issue a travel approval document. Please print this before arriving at the airport, airlines will not accept any travellers to board flights without prior proof of authorisation.See Covid testing facilities and cost below.
