CAL: Travellers to Jamaica must fill out online screening application

Caribbean Airlines (CAL) is advising its customers travelling into Jamaica that they must first complete an online screening and application to receive the necessary approvals for entry.

In a notice issued on Monday, CAL cautioned that applicants must also follow the instructions outlined in the approval email once it is received.

"This allows them to download their travel authorisation document. This downloaded authorisation document presents the user with a unique barcode and application reference number, along with their name, date of birth and passport number, which must be presented at check-in," the statement said.

Travellers who are unable to present the downloaded approval authorisation with the unique barcode may not be accepted for travel.

Furthermore, persons will not be allowed to travel without meeting the requirements as outlined by Jamaica's Ministry of Health and Immigration Services.

Jamaican nationals and residents can receive easy access to the required documentation here while visitors can do so at the Visit Jamaica website.

These measures have been implemented as part of the "new normal" to continue economic activity while preventing the spread of COVID-19.
