    COVID-19 Test Requirements

    NOTE: The information on this page applies only to residents of the United States of America (USA), Brazil, Dominican Republic, Mexico or Panama.

    All residents of USA, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Mexico or Panama who are 12 years of age or over, are required to obtain a negative COVID-19 PCR or Antigen test result before travel to Jamaica. The test must be authorized by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) or meet the standards of the World Health Organization (WHO), and must be performed by a College of American Pathologists (CAP) accredited, Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) registered or ISO 15189 certified laboratory. The date of the sample collection must be less than 10 days before the date of travel. The negative test result must be presented to the airline representative in order to complete the check in for a flight.

    Accepted Test Types

    • A Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction Test (RT-PCR)
    • A Nucleic Acid Amplification test (NAA)
    • An RNA or molecular test
    • An Antigen test
