    Jamaica Cares Insurance Programme to be Launched in Two Weeks

    The Jamaican Government is working hard to bring tourism back-on-track in the safest way possible....
    they will be launching a mandatory insurance programme for non Jamaican passport holders which will be "aimed at providing travel protection and emergency services to tourists coming into the island, as well as to ensure the safety and protection of workers in the tourism sector and, by extension Jamaican citizens."

    More info provided in link below...

    I’m impressed, seems to be a very inclusive insurance program for a cost of only $40. Good job Jamaica, what a great idea!! I’m interested in seeing how they will collect the fee.

    The price of $40 US sounds reasonable, but the amount for repatriation $100,000 and medical care $50,000 seem inadequate if those prices are in Jamaican dollars ($700 US and $350 US). Can you clear this up?

    Well I read somewhere I will have to pay it with the travel authorization. But I can't find the article. I can't apply till the 2nd so l will let you know if I have to pay it on the authorization.

    Happycappy....I've only read that it's to be paid at the time of the travel authorization.
    We still have quite a few questions & we're waiting for answers.

    Here's a bit more info & connection to the insurance company....

    I just wonder who is the insurance company that will be paying out that money if anyone does get sick in Negril? We already bought our travel insurance but I will purchase this new insurance since I'll have no choice this trip.
