Travel Authorization for Entrance into Jamaica
Starting July 10, 2020, all travelers from New York, Florida, Arizona and Texas in the USA will be required to upload a negative Covid-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test result. The date of the test must be within 10 days of the arrival date in order to obtain a Travel Authorization.
Jamaica requires that visitors undergo COVID-19 testing upon arrival at the airport. Travelers must stay at their hotel or resort for at least 24-48 hours while they await their test results. "If a traveler tests positive for COVID-19 on arrival, the person will be isolated in a public health facility for a minimum period of 14 days, or until they are able to produce two consecutive negative tests in a 48-hour period," said Donovan White, Jamaica's Director of Tourism
Beginning June 15, all arriving passengers will be required to complete a Travel Authorization form prior to their arrival to Jamaica. Please be sure to complete this prior to your departure and bring a copy of the approved/completed form to the airport at time of travel. Airlines will require proof of completed documentation.
