JA tightens tests on ‘high risk’ visitors

Regional 22 Jul, 2020 Follow News

Visitors to Jamaica are regulated for the virus

Jamaica first reopened its borders for tourism on June 15, and now the destination has put in place some revised measures for travellers.

Jamaica now requires all travellers from what it deems “high-risk” areas, including Arizona, Florida, New York and Texas, need to upload proof of negative COVID-19 PCR tests taken no more than 10 days prior to arrival in Jamaica. The results are required for visitors to receive a Travel Authorization certification.

Jamaica has implemented what it calls a “Stay in Zone” order, which requires all travellers to remain either at their hotel or resort within its “Resilient Corridor,” meaning the popular north coast of the country, and destinations like Ocho Rios, Montego Bay and Negril.

All travellers need to complete Jamaica’s “Travel Authorization” between two and five days before their planned arrival in Jamaica. That includes a digital immigration form.
