Requirements for Entry Into Jamaica

Passport: Travelers must have a passport or other acceptable travel document. The passport or other travel document must be valid for the period of intended stay in Jamaica. Travelers are also required to show evidence of sufficient funds to support themselves during their stay in Jamaica and must have a return or round-trip ticket to another country.

Entry Visa: In addition to travel documents, nationals of certain countries require an entry visa. This is normally issued, on application, by a Jamaican Consular office.

The decision in respect of admission and length of stay in Jamaica rests with the Immigration Officer at the port of entry in Jamaica. This applies whether or not a visa is a prerequisite for entry.

Cruise Passengers: Cruise Passengers of any nationality who intend to remain in Jamaica during the stay of the vessel by which they arrived and to depart on the same vessel, are not required to hold passports.

Minister of Labor

Travelers who arrive in Jamaica from countries where there are no Jamaican visa-issuing authorities must also present a letter from the Minister of Labor approving the work permit application.

Upon landing and prior to taking up their employment, all prospective employees must take the letter, along with travel documents (including airline ticket), to the Immigration, Citizenship and Passport Office located at 25 Constant Spring Road, Kingston 10, Jamaica, which will endorse the passport for the duration of the work permit and issue a certificate to the Ministry of Labor, on the basis of which the work permit will be released. The work permit is validated at the discretion of the Minister of Labor.
