In our attempt to keep information about the coronavirus current related to travel and vacation plans here is another update. The country of Jamaica has remained well above the curve regarding coronavirus and here are the steps they are taking to ensure Jamaica remains that way.
In the wake of the global outbreak of COVID-19, Jamaica has taken a number of preventative and proactive measures to keep our residents and your clients safe.
Jamaica's Ministry of Health and Wellness has imposed travel restrictions to include eight countries in efforts to control the spread of the coronavirus: China, Italy, South Korea, Singapore, Iran, Spain, France and Germany.
Travellers who have travelled to these countries in the past 14 days and do not have permanent residency or marriage exemption in Jamaica will not be landed on arrival to the island.
Passengers will be screened at all the international gateways to Jamaica by heat sensing scanners, prior to entering the Immigration Hall.
Quarantine facilities have been identified and isolation facilities are now at each of the island’s public hospitals.
