Visitors to the country will no longer need the Travel Authorization, and travel-related quarantine measures will no longer be required from March 1, 2022.
Children 12 years and older will still need to provide a negative COVID-19 test (antigen or PCR) conducted within 72 hours prior to the date of travel at check-in.
"Eliminating travel-related quarantines and the need for travelers to fill out and receive approval of the Travel Authorization form are key steps in relaxing our travel protocols as the global spread of COVID-19 declines," said the Hon. Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism, Jamaica. "We are confident that these refreshed entry requirements will increase the appeal of Jamaica as a destination of choice and help us continue on our path to recovery for the tourism sector and wider economy as a whole."
Jamaica was one of the first destinations to reopen after COVID-19 shut down the travel industry and was one of the first countries to be recognized by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) with its global safety and hygiene stamp.
Since its reopening, Jamaica has enjoyed a steady increase in tourism arrivals and continues to welcome an increasing number of visitors, approaching pre-COVID tourism levels.
"We are continually reviewing our Jamaica CARES program and travel protocols to align with best practices from internationally recognized organizations and ensure that Jamaica retains its position as one of the world's leading tourism destinations," noted Donovan White, Director of Tourism, Jamaica Tourist Board. "These changes are timed to go into effect as destinations across the globe are enacting similar revisions to their travel requirements."
