Jamaica eliminates quarantine and Authorization Form for entry

KINGSTON, JAMAICA — Jamaica has eased its entry protocols, making it easier for travellers to visit the destination.

Effective March 1, 2022, international visitors will no longer be required to obtain travel authorization to enter the island. Travellers 12 years of age and older will only need to provide a negative result from a COVID-19 antigen or PCR test conducted within 72 hours prior to travel.

In addition, travellers to Jamaica will no longer face travel-related quarantine measures.

Said Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism, Jamaica: “Eliminating travel-related quarantines and the need for travellers 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. 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.”

Donovan White, Director of Tourism at the Jamaica Tourist Board, added that the Jamaica CARES program, the island’s nationwide response to COVID-19 that includes various health and safety protocols, is continually being reviewed to align with best practices from international recognized organizations.

“These changes are timed to go into effect as destinations across the globe are enacting similar revisions to their travel requirements,” said White.
