What Are The Jamaica Travel Restrictions and Requirements?

So you are ready to start planning your trip to Jamaica, but you’re worried about the Travel Restrictions and Requirements.  No Worries Mon, we have you covered!!  You are going to enjoy your vacation just as you planned it, in a safe, secure and seamless manner and Trasformativa Travel, along with the Jamaica Tourist Board are here to help you navigate your trip to Jamaica.  Jamaica’s new normal for travel delivers an authentic, relaxing and COVID-secure travel experience. 

Recently, The CDC downgraded Jamaica from a Level 3 travel designation to a Level 2 travel designation, which puts the destination at a lower risk designation than over 70 percent of countries throughout the globe.  This is a very positive sign for Jamaica as they continue to make progress on the path to recovery.  This reduced designation is a testament to the work of the Jamaican government and the Jamaican people themselves to help mitigate the impact of this pandemic.

Did You Know??   The Jamaica CARES protocols were among the first to obtain the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Safe Travels recognition.  Because of Jamaica’s proactive response to Covid 19 Safety Protocols, Jamaica was the #1 Travel Destination in 2021, and continues to welcome, and has welcomed more than one million visitors since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.


So with that piece of mind, let’s plan a trip to Jamaica!!  


What To Know Before You Go – Jamaica Travel Restrictions and Requirements!!

       Pre-Departure & Arrival

       Along with an approved Jamaica Travel Authorization Form prior to boarding a flight to Jamaica, ALL travelers ages 12 and up, regardless of nationality, are required to show proof of a      negative COVID-19 Antigen or molecular (PCR, NAA, RNA) test performed by an accredited lab for which the sample was collected within 3 days of the travel date. Know that we are well-equipped to accommodate on-island testing prior to your return flight, as well.

Fully vaccinated travelers staying outside the resilient corridors who have a negative PCR test taken within 3 days of departure to Jamaica will not be required to quarantine on arrival.

Travel Authorization applications must be submitted within seven (7) days of the intended travel date.


      Health & Safety Protocols

      Jamaica has carefully developed an extensive health and safety program to ensure the highest levels of health safety for visitors, tourism workers and the local communities. Led by the formation of the “Resilient Corridors” that are governed by a strictly enforced set of protocols and standards for the tourism industry, along with other risk management initiatives, visitors can relax and enjoy the many treats that the island has to offer.


      On-Island Travel

      Central to the risk management efforts are the Controlled Entry Program initiatives. These include the categorization and assignment of all arriving travelers based on their purpose of visit and intended accommodation type of the Travel Authorization application. Visitors staying at approved accommodations within the resilient corridor can freely enjoy the many comforts of their stay, and can visit approved Covid-19 protocol compliant attractions within the “corridor”.


       Departing Jamaica

        For travelers departing the island, many countries and airlines require the presentation of a recent negative Covid-19 test result to board a flight. 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 either free of charge or for a minimal fee.
