Jamaica to charge travelers insurance fee to all travelers amid Coronavirus

From November 2020 all non-Jamaica passport holders have to pay 40$ per person as a “Jamaica cares” program in order to visit Jamaica which was officially announced on Monday.

This health insurance was made by a discussion between Jamaica authority and Global Rescue. This travel insurance fee will cover up to $100,000 and the non-island health coverage of up to $50,000 with few basic necessary needs like field rescue, evacuation, etc.

The Global Rescue said:

“Jamaica Cares is a comprehensive, mandatory program to increase traveler protection from the time they leave home until returning,” Bartlett said in a statement. “The traveler knows they’re protected, and they know other travelers are, too. That’s what’s needed to give confidence to travelers when they are ready to travel.”

There has been 8652 covid cases with 196 total death in Jamaica as of wednesday morning according to ministry of health at Jamaica.
