Grab your flip-flops and sunblock and get ready to enjoy a Red Stripe on the beach! As of this past weekend, Jamaica implemented major changes to its COVID-19 protocols for travelers. It joins fellow Caribbean islands St. Lucia and Grenada, who relaxed their pandemic policies following a decline in cases.
Earlier this month, the CDC declared Jamaica a “Level 1” destination, meaning that the amount of COVID cases is low. You can now enter the country without providing proof of a PCR or antigen test within 72 hours of your trip. The mask mandate has also been scrapped, but you are free to wear one if you prefer.
