By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Fully-vaccinated travelers may now visit areas outside Jamaica’s “resilient corridor” without having to quarantine. That is once they provide a negative PCR COVID-19 test taken within three days before arriving in Jamaica.
Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness said the change came into effect on Thursday, November 18.
Before Thursday, only visitors to the island’s “resilient corridor”, specifically designated for tourism purposes, didn’t have to quarantine after meeting specific pre-arrival testing requirements.
Those travelling to areas outside the corridor had to quarantine up to 14 days according to the Jamaica Tourist Board. The restriction still applies if fully vaccinated travelers do not provide a negative PCR test. Unvaccinated travelers to areas outside the corridor do not qualify for not quarantining.
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Jamaica has a high incidence of COVID-19 and advises travelers that they should be fully vaccinated if they intend to travel to Jamaica.
