Where can I travel with my Jamaican passport WITHOUT a visa?

oie_transparent-1

I’m glad you asked.

About 2 months ago, in the midst of being caught between being a graduand and unemployed – and after having a great opportunity snatched from me due to mercury being in retrograde (& being broke)- it dawned on me, while I prepared to make new plans for my life…

“Hey, you should make a list of all the countries Jamaicans can travel to visa-free, because I’m pretty sure it never even dawned on them. Plus this can help YOU since you wanna go everywhere”

So, I got up the next day and I made that list on a sheet of folder paper and it’s been chilling in my adult colouring book ever since September, 2016, waiting on this very moment. Never fear dear list…your time has come, to be shared with everyone.

 

Now, I want to approach this in the best way possible so that there is no confusion. However, if there is, please feel free to leave a comment.

Now, I know this may not be a HUGE help since plane fare is still costly, but I myself didn’t even know that our passport was this effective on its own. There are places outside of the USA, Canada & the UK. So, maybe you wanna save for that ticket one day and jump on a plane without visa restrictions being an issue!

Along with the visa-free countries, I will include in this post: countries where you can acquire a visa upon arrival to the port in that country (for a fee – usually reasonable or cheap, and in a few cases free); as well as countries that require e-Visas. Please be advised that the first two (2) options have proved to be somewhat problematic in certain countries though, as customs/immigration agents sometimes are unaware that we are exempt from a visa, or the visa on arrival process can tend to be a bit tedious.
So, it would be best to correspond with that country’s embassy/consulate prior to your trip, OR, do a quick check online to see if anyone else has experienced any problems. Additionally, the airport agents at your port of origin, may be able to check for you. There is always help out there & traveling is never ever a 100% smooth process. It’s all apart of the journey!

By the way, if you are wary of certain countries, in terms of security or the general state of that nation, just check out the news online, look up their crime levels, ask locals — if you can find any — maybe there are discussion boxes about the same place you’re looking into. I know people are wary of Middle Eastern, African & some Asian countries, but sometimes the media makes it out to be worse than it is. Jamaica is said to have a high crime rate, but hey…that doesn’t prevent people from travelling!

 

Now let’s get started…

Visa on arrival (VOA)

The following is a list of countries — in alphabetical order, which Jamaican passport holders can travel to without possessing a visa prior to travel, and can attain a visa (by filling out an application form & paying the required fee — varies by country) upon arrival at the country’s port of disembarkation:

*Note: Some of these countries have multiple main ports of entry (via land, sea and air), and the VOA can only be obtained at specific ports; usually the land ports of entry are the issue.
NB. The fees are typically cash only payments. USD tends to be widely accepted, but there should also be currency exchange desks in the airport. Additionally, some destinations require between 1-3 extra passport pictures, so take them with you on your trip. They’re cheap & easy to squeeze into your personal luggage.

 

US Visa eligible territories

For all my people that have been blessed with that 10 year US visa, this is for you. If you’re tired of visiting family, or mainland USA is boring to you, or you’re on a long trip and wanna have a double vacay… keep reading. The following is a list of territories outside of the 50 states, which can be traveled to with a valid unexpired US visa:

  1. American Samoa (territory) — NB. Different from Samoa (country) *No visa required for up to 30 days; Entry Permit required for a $20 fee* (helpful links: link 1; link 2; link 3; link 4)
  2. Bermuda
  3. Costa Rica (30 days)
  4. Guam (territory) — NB. If arriving via mainland USA, they will not request visa again.
  5. Puerto Rico
  6. US Virgin Islands

 

E-visas

The following are a list of countries that require electronic visas — acquired via the internet, instead of physically going to a consulate/high commission/embassy. The services of an e-Tourist Visa involves only an online application for which no facilitation is required by any agents, etc. The visa, being electronic, means no label or stamp ever appears in your passport. The visa is accessible for viewing by your airline, or at the port, through an electronic system accessible by the country being visited.

  1. Bahrain (1 mth) — e-Visa
  2. Côte d’Ivoire [Ivory Coast] (3 mths) — e-Visa ~ Note: Entry only permitted via the Port Bouër Airport (Félix-Houphouët-Boigny International Airport) in Abidjan. The cost for this e-visa is €73 (Euros).
  3. Cuba (30 days) — Tourist Cards (Tarjeta del Turista) must be obtained prior to arrival in Cuba. They are available at: the Cuban Embassy; Authorized Airlines; or Travel agencies.
  4. Ethiopia (30 days; 90 days) — e-Visa ~ Note: Entry only permitted via the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport. The cost for this e-visa is $52 USD and $72 USD, respectively (different lengths of stay).
  5. Gabone-Visa
  6. Georgia (30 days) — e-Visa
  7. Guinea-Bissau (90 days) — e-Visa
  8. India — e-Visa
  9. Iran (30 days) — e-Visa *visa on arrival also available for $136USD*
  10. Myanmar (Burma) (28 days) — e-Visa *NB. this is where the Rohingya are being persecuted*
  11. Rwandae-Visa
  12. Sao Tome e Principe (15 days) — e-Visa (US Visa accepted also)
  13. Sri Lanka (30 days) — e-Visa
  14. Vietnam (30 days) — e-Visa ($19USD processing fee, and an on arrival stamping fee, $25USD)

Please be advised though guys, for general travel purposes — unless stated otherwise, ensure that:

  • your passport has at least six (6) months validity from the date of arrival in which ever country;
  • your passport should have at least two (2) blank pages for stamping by the Immigration Officer;
  • you should have a return ticket or onward journey ticket;
  • you have sufficient proof of funds to support you during your stay;
  • you have a proof of address to show the officer where you’ll be staying.

Nuh mek dem deport unnu, do. Doh tell dem Britne send yuh a dem country without inform you. 🙂

NB. I have done my best to cross-check the validity of this information as best as possible via the internet. If I had access to calling all embassies, consulates & ports of destination, I would have done so to make it even more accurate. What I will do though, is email as many of these embassies/consulates as possible over time to provide an updated version.

Also, when traveling, please be advised that some countries require an in-transit visa, for layovers — typically long/overnight layovers. For example, European countries in the Schengen zone, are popular stopovers for intercontinental flights/destinations. These airports typically have an international transit zone for flights leaving the EU to a destination outside of it; in which case, the most you will need is an airport transit visa (can be waived if in possession of a valid US, Canada, UK visa). However, if there are two EU stopovers — which will require you to go to the domestic zone — you will need a transit “short stay” visa.

I have provided tourism website links for most or all of these countries for your perusal so that you can find out more about them. The tourism pages, especially, are for the countries that may be new to you. In future posts, I may delve into different countries that have sparked my interest, so that I can share why I adore them with you 🙂

 

Happy traveling!

    Indonesia requires a visa (unless it has changed since 2016), we had to do the documents here with the Honorary Consul, and then send passport to the Embassy in Houston, Texas. The whole process took about 2 weeks. And Ethiopia started issuing E-visas this year. They are $52 USD and the process was simple. You must bring a printout of the visa with you though. They grant the visa in 24 hours, even on weekends.

I read on a site like this this I didn’t and was misleaded. Also for Laos you need a visa before to that I also got as I couldn’t have entered the country without it. Cambodia they weren’t sure so i hang out with the immigration, they feed me banana flitas while they google where Jamaica was. They saw that it was next to America and said oh same America it’s OK.

I can imagine communication might have been a bit difficult in SE Asia, but I’m honestly not sure why Indonesia was a problem for entry, it might have been the officers were unaware & you couldnt communicate that. Also, regarding Laos, it’s not visa-free it’s VOA (at 3 specific ports). I want to ask if you had checked with an embassy/consulate/airport attendant prior to travels?

      When did you go to Bali? My wife (Jamaican citizen and resident) did not need a visa in late 2016. Sometimes the problem is other countries or with airlines who don’t have up to date information which is why I always travel with a print out from some official website (usually Foreign Ministry or Embassy) which shows the current regulations. It is quite possible that the authorities in Thailand were wrong regarding visa requirements for Indonesia.

    Thank you for this but just checking as travel to some of these countries might not be direct if you need to stop over in other countries that are not on the list will you need a visa for landing in that country? Thanks

      Hi Cece
      It is a great question, that only recently has come to my attention. Very valid concern. I included a bit about Europe’s Shengen zone’s policy, and I do believe going through USA requires a C-1 transit visa.
      Personally, you cant go wrong with investing in a 10 year US tourist visa.

      Let me know if you have any more questions about this, though.

  33. This is an extremely valuable resource. Thank you for putting it together; I’ll definitely share with my contacts!

    In passing, at the time of my posting, I didn’t see the United Arab Emirates on the list of e-visa countries. I can confirm from experience that they offer, what amounts to an e-visa. See here: https://www.gdrfa.ae/GCCIND/gccLogin.do?userAction=switchToEnglish

    I know this is very sneaky, but guess what??

    Since most Arab countries don’t want you in their countriy if you’ve been to Israel, Israel actually makes this easier by giving nice slips of paper in lieu of stamps in your passport. So long as you don’t cross into Israel from Jordan or Egypt, you’ll be totally clear.

    I don’t know if Jordan or Egypt will stamp your passports with exit stamps- but that’s evidence, so why take the chance?

    Good morning Britne!
    Thank so much for your article. Really let’s us as Jamaicans know our options. I just wanted to update you on a change that was discovered earlier this year by my friend (and then the Jamaican embassy in Beijing who she had to contact). Bangladesh now requires a Visa on Arrival for Jamaicans going there. It seems that they have actually closed off its No Visa policy to many countries who never used to need it.
    And in their airport the foreign exchange kiosks are after immigration so definitely don’t travel there without the major currencies (USD, Pound Sterling) so you can pay for it.
    Have a great day!

      hi Britne
      I love this …. I travel to Europe every year what I do is request a long term visa, ( 3 years visa) plus am married to a eu citizen so maybe it’s easier for me I don’t know…. but I love to travel and I’ve seen a lot of beautiful country. …. and thank you for doing this research.

        As the spouse of an eu citizen, it is MUCH easier for you!
        Jamaicans can only get visas for a maximum of 90 days, and must be out of the schengen area for another 90 days before being allowed back in (so, twice a year for 3 months max each time). And we have to reapply every time as if it were the first time.

    Hi Britne
    Thanks for the info quite informative but I haven’t seen Costa Rica on the list. I could be blindsided but sorry if I’m wrong. Once again useful info

      Hi 🙂
      No problem! Thanks for reading. Costa Rica is a beautiful country, however, we do need a visa to go there. I will give you a solid response as soon as the embassy gets back to me though. It seems as if certain conditions may have changed since I last contacted them.

      Hey. The embassy responded & confirmed that we can travel to CR on a valid US, Canada, or EU visa 😁
      So I’ve updated & included it under US Visa eligible category.

  40. Very helpful information. Disputing the notion of many that if you don’t have a visa, you essentially can’t travel.
