Do I need to get any immunisation before I travel?
Jamaica does not require any immunisations for you to land on the island from the UK. We advise you to take look at the website www.visitjamaica.com before travel.
Are there any travel restrictions to Jamaica?
The issue of travel restriction is quite important due to the fact that this can actually cancel your entire holiday if you haven’t prepared the necessary papers in time. UK passport holders are allowed to stay in Jamaica for a period of 90 consecutive days and do not need a physical visa. ALL travellers into Jamaica must legally fill out a pre travel authorisation electronic form, which can be found on the visitjamaica.com website. If you book your flight via Asha @traveldreamagents she will be on hand to assist you with this and point you in the right direction.
Citizens from the US, Canada or the Commonwealth of Nations need a valid passport for at least 6 months and usually, if your stay is no longer than 6 months you will not be required a visa. However, citizens from Pakistan, Sri Lanka and even some European countries need a visa for entering Jamaica, while the duration of the visit can be limited to 30 days for the Japanese and 90 days for the German citizens.
It is your responsibility to check that your passport is in date before you travelled that you have filled out the necessary documents. It is also your responsibility to check with your embassy if you require a visa before you fly.
We will be working within all Covid guidelines at the time of travel.
