Jamaica welcomes tourists from all over the globe, with around 4 million visitors annually. Though the global Coronavirus pandemic has impacted tourism around the world, we are now beginning to see signs of recovery following the successful rollout of vaccinations in most countries. Travel restrictions have been lifted by many countries including the USA, Canada and most of Europe.Those that haven’t yet are anticipated to change status in the coming weeks.
For those that are able to travel to Jamaica, everybody over the age of 12 and up, and regardless of nationality, are required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test taken within three days of travel and have an approved Travel Authorization form prior to boarding a flight to Jamaica. Travel applications must be submitted within seven days of the travel date.
Once on the island, visitors staying at approved accommodation within the resilient corridor can move around freely and visit approved, Covid-protocol-compliant attractions within the corridor. The tourism corridor is governed by a strictly enforced set of protocols and standards along with other risk management initiatives.
If your home country requires you to get tested before you return, Jamaica has adequate testing locations and capacity available to meet the demand. In addition, many of the resorts and hotels offer approved testing services on property.
