The Foreign Office (FCDO) has amended its travel advice to Jamaica to warn against all non-essential trips.

Jamaica is currently on the UK’s amber travel list, although several industry commentators expected the Government to move it to red at last week’s traffic light review due to rising COVID rates.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, the FCDO changed its travel advice to warn against all but essential travel to the whole of Jamaica, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.

TUI promptly cancelled all holidays to Jamaica until 11 September.

The advisory could invalidate holidaymakers’ travel insurance policies.

Jamaica is now one of only a few amber-listed holiday destinations to which the FCDO is advising against non-essential travel.
