Jamaica Immigration Information

Date Updated: October 14, 2020

Jamaica Travel Authorization Form


Jamaica requires all arriving visitors to complete a Travel Authorization form. This form must be completed no earlier than 5-days and no later than 2-days before you travel to Jamaica. You must receive the authorization approval before checking-in for your flight. In addition, all residents of the United States of America (USA), Brazil, Dominican Republic or Mexico who are 12 years of age or over, will be required to obtain a COVID-19 viral test 9-days or less before departing for Jamaica. You will need to bring a printed copy of the form, or have it accessible on your phone/tablet. See https://www.visitjamaica.com/travelauthorization/ for current and additional information on the testing requirements and the Travel Authorization process.

Shortcut to testing requirements (until they change them).

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.

Recent travelers have reported that the connection between the Travel Authorization system and the Immigration Form system is not consistently working. You can fill out the Jamaica Immigration/Customs form at https://enterjamaica.com/.

The increased testing should help visitors feel safer during their visit.


All aspects of tourist related areas will be evaluated frequently 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.

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.
