Travelling to Jamaica


1st May 2021 – The reopening of Jamaica to UK residents.

The Jamaican borders remain closed to all UK residents until at least the 30th of April, however, information from the Jamaican Tourist Board which originated from the Prime Minister leads us to believe that the ban will not be extended any further.

With this information it seems that BA are gearing up for their flights flight back to Jamaica on the 5th of May 2021.
