As of April 16th, Jamaica will not require international travelers to demonstrate a negative Covid-19 test and will eliminate the indoor mask mandate which has been in effect.

Effective April 16, 2022, travel to the island will be made even easier as the pre-travel COVID-19 test will no longer be required. Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett, said in a press release “We are optimistic that these simpler requirements will serve to increase the appeal of Jamaica as a premier destination and keep us moving along the road to a stronger recovery for both the tourism sector and the nation’s economy as a whole. Eliminating mask mandates and the need for travelers to present a negative COVID test result are important strides toward our continued gradual relaxation of travel protocols as the spread of COVID-19 keeps declining.”

The CDC ranks Jamaica as a destination with low COVID-19 risk.  Earlier this year, Jamaica eliminated quarantines for international arrivals and its Travel Authorization Form.
