Posted on 07/21/2020 | About Jamaica, Jamaica


advises that all customers travelling into Jamaica must first complete an online screening and application to receive the necessary approvals for entry to the country.

It is imperative that on receipt of the approval email, applicants follow the additional instructions in the email. This allows them to download their travel authorisation document.

This downloaded authorisation document presents the user with a unique barcode and application reference number, along with their name, date of birth and passport number, which must be presented at check-in.

Persons who are unable to present the downloaded approval authorisation with the unique barcode may not be accepted for travel.

Persons will not be allowed to travel, without meeting the requirements as outlined by the Jamaica Ministry of Health and Immigration Services.



Beginning July 15, all non-business travellers 12 years of age and over, from Arizona, Florida, New York and Texas in the USA will be required to upload a negative COVID-19 PCR test result from a College of American Pathologists (CAP) accredited medical laboratory. The test sample collection date must be within 10 days of the arrival date in order to obtain a Travel Authorization.

Jamaica has introduced measures to manage the risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic. All travellers must obtain a Travel Authorization prior to departure and to adhere to safety protocols while in Jamaica. Everything you need to know about travelling to Jamaica can be found below:
