The Government of Jamaica has implemented enhanced screening and quarantine measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
As of July 10, 2020, visitors from locations designated as high-risk by the Jamaican government will be required to upload a valid Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test result with the Travel Authorization no more than seven days from the intended date of arrival in Jamaica. Approval for travel to Jamaica will be subject to the upload of the test result.
Visitors to Jamaica will be required to undergo a health screening and risk assessment. This will include:
- Checking the individual’s temperature
- Observation of symptoms
- Interview by the health officer
Visitors should expect to complete a COVID-19 test upon arrival. If the test is positive, or if visitors develop COVID-19 symptoms during quarantine, they should expect to be placed in mandatory isolation.
Visitors to Jamaica are required to remain within the “COVID-19 Resilient Corridor,” a defined geographical area within Jamaica designed for tourism purposes
Any travelers arriving in Jamaica and tested for COVID-19 will be asked to remain in quarantine at their hotel/resort until the test results are returned.
Any travelers testing positive for COVID-19 will be isolated either at their hotel/resort or in a government facility as determined by health authorities.
