Jamaica Immigration Information

Date Updated: July 4, 2020

Jamaica Travel Authorization Form


Jamaica requires all arriving visitors to complete a Travel Authorization form. This form must be completed no earlier than 72-hours before you travel to Jamaica. You can fill it out on your phone at the airport before check-in. You must receive the authorization approval before checking-in for your flight. The process is automated and you receive your response immediately. You will need to bring a printed copy of the form, or have it accessible on your phone/tablet.

This process also automatically passes the required information to the Jamaica Immigration Form process. You won't need to complete the separate Immigration Form below.

Online Jamaica Immigration Form

In order to promote contact-less procedures, the Jamaica Immigrations department is asking that all incoming visitors use their online immigration form. If you used the Travel Authorization form above, you won't need to use this form.


Beginning July 10, 2020 visitors from the American states of Florida, New York, Arizona, and Texas are now required to pretest for the new coronavirus before travelling to Jamaica. Visitors are required to upload a valid PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test no older than seven days and must be uploaded to the http://www.visitjamaica.com portal.



All aspects of tourist related areas will be evaluated at least every 2 weeks by the Jamaican government and any required changes will be made. I will try to keep up on the updates and will post immigration changes here. Any other COVID-19 related items will be posted on my COVID-19 information page.
