JTB says Jamaica well-prepared to meet new international travel requirements

by December 6th, 2021

The Jamaica Tourist Board says Jamaica is well-prepared, to meet new international travel requirements, citing the Jamaica Cares programme, which allows for changing needs.

The U.S. Government’s new one-day Covid-19 testing requirement for international travellers returning home and Jamaicans visiting the U.S., will take effect, on Monday.

The board said Jamaica has established ample testing locations, offering both antigen and PCR tests.

In addition to multiple lab facilities, and testing capability at the two airports many of the island’s resorts and hotels offer approved testing services on property, making the departure process even more seamless.

It added that Jamaica offers pre-booking for return tests to ensure results are provided, in time to meet departure needs.

There are established partnerships with three approved private labs to provide travellers with seamless in-hotel antigen or PCR tests.

The approved facilities are, Get Well Labs, Technological Solutions Limited, and Hospiten.

The board said both airports in Jamaica are equipped with pre-flight testing capability prior to check-in.

Guests staying at licensed hotels, resorts, villas or guest houses can schedule their test on property , or book an in-person appointment at the closest lab.
