* New Passport Requirements - US Travelers
As of January 23, 2007, all travelers between the United States and Jamaica are required to have a valid passport for travel; a requirement under the new Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative. The United States Department of Homeland Security requires that all U.S. citizens and foreign nationals, traveling by air or sea, must provide a valid passport to enter or re-enter the United States.
We are encouraging US nationals requiring a Passport to commence the application process as soon as possible.
