Visas and Officialdom

American citizens now require a passport to reenter the United States after visiting Jamaica, as part of a campaign to bolster security. Americans and EU citizens do not require a visa to enter Jamaica and can stay for three to six months, although the actual length of stay stamped into your passport will be determined by the customs agent upon entry. For extensions, visit the immigration office in Half Way Tree (25 Constant Spring Rd., tel. 876/906-4402 or 876/906-1304).
