Jamaica has been moved to the CDC’s lowest CDC travel advisory level.
The US-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has downgraded the country to a Level 1 designation; countries with that classification have low cases of Covid-19.
“A Level 1 travel advisory is amongst the best news the tourism industry can hope for,” said Jamaica Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett. “This reduced designation is a testament to the work of our government and the Jamaican people as well as a hopeful incentive to keep our tourism recovery moving forward.”
Last year, Jamaica reported more than 1.5 million visitor arrivals.
The move is another boost for the region tourism industry, where more and more destinations are easing their entry protocols for travelers as cases continue to decline.
“For 2022, the outlook for the tourism sector remains positive with projections for approximately 2.45 to 2.5 million visitor arrivals and a total visitor spend of about USD $2.9 billion,” Bartlett said. “Travelers can continue to rest assured that our island is among the safest choices in the Caribbean and in the world.”
