Quarantine requirements

All fully vaccinated travellers to Jamaica with a negative result from a pre-travel PCR test are exempt from quarantine and will not normally be required to take any further tests on arrival. You should ensure that you have evidence of a pre-travel negative PCR test result and full vaccination status to avoid quarantine.

All other travellers arriving in Jamaica will be subject to the following quarantine requirements:

Category 1: Residents - Jamaican nationals and non-nationals (including British Citizens) ordinarily resident in Jamaica

  • Jamaican nationals and non-nationals ordinarily resident in Jamaica may be subject to testing on arrival if assessed as high-risk
  • if you are not fully vaccinated, or arrive with a pre-travel antigen test, you will be required to remain in quarantine at home for 14 days from your date of entry to Jamaica. If you are fully vaccinated this is reduced to 8 days. If fully vaccinated, and take a PCR test on arrival at your own expense, you can be released from quarantine on receipt of a negative result
  • if the test is positive, you will be isolated either at home or in a government facility as determined by the health authorities

Category 2: Non-residents visiting Jamaica for tourism purposes and staying at approved “resilient corridor” accommodation

  • The pre-testing requirement described above is applicable to persons in this category if they are residents of locations designated as high risk by the Jamaican health authorities
  • Based on health screening and risk assessment on arrival, you may still be required to be tested at the airport or designated facility. In this case, you would await your test result in your hotel room
  • If the test is negative, you will remain at your hotel/resort within the “resilient corridor” and restricted to property under the “Stay in Resilient Corridor” measure with only permitted excursions
  • If the test is positive, you will be isolated either at the hotel/resort or in a government facility as determined by the health authorities
  • Details of ‘resilient corridor’ accommodation can be found on the Visit Jamaica website.

Category 3: Non-residents visiting Jamaica for business purposes

  • This traveller category does NOT include other non-residents or residents travelling to attend funerals, weddings, other family gatherings or conduct personal interest activities
  • Business travellers who are either unvaccinated or took an antigen test before travel will be tested on arrival at the airport in Jamaica. They will await their test results under a “Quarantine for Business Traveller” measure at their hotel/intended address. If the test is negative, they will be released from quarantine and be under a “Stay at Intended Address for Business Travellers” measure for a period of 14 days from their date of entry to Jamaica or for the duration of their stay if shorter than 14 days. If the test is positive, they will be isolated either at their hotel/intended address or in a government facility as determined by the health authorities

Persons may be required to be tested at the airport or other designated facility, if assessed by the health authorities as high-risk. They will then await their test results under quarantine at their hotel/intended address
  • if you are not fully vaccinated, or arrive with a pre-travel antigen negative test result, you will be required to remain in quarantine at home for 14 days from your date of entry to Jamaica. If you are fully vaccinated this is reduced to 8 days. If fully vaccinated and you take a PCR test on arrival at your own expense, you can be released from quarantine on receipt of a negative result
