Conditional visa waiver for Colombians

No Comments
Cabinet has approved a conditional waiver of visas for persons traveling from Colombia to Jamaica. Tourism Minister, Edmund Bartlett says the move is in a bid to boost tourist arrivals from the South American country. Mr. Bartlett explained that the visa waiver will only apply to Colombians on a visit to Jamaica for thirty days or less and for tourism purposes. Jamaicans travelling to Colombia currently do not need a visa. And the Tourism Minister says the initiative will facilitate reciprocity and easier passage for Colombian visitors. Mr. Bartlett further noted that the move is part of his Ministry's ongoing marketing thrust to attract tourists from South America and other emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China.
