Jamaicans stranded in Cayman can finally go home

There is great news today for all Jamaicans anxiously awaiting to leave Cayman.

The Jamaican Honorary Consulate and the Governor’s Office have announced that the first repatriation flight to Jamaica has been authorised by the Jamaican Government for this Thursday, June 4 2020. The aircraft will be operated by Cayman Airways. 

The passenger list for the outbound flight has been compiled by the Jamaican Honorary Consulate to prioritise compassionate cases. The Jamaican Honorary Consulate will be contacting those passengers who have been cleared to book on Thursday’s flight. 

The return leg will carry a small number of Caymanians seeking to return home, all of whom will be subject to 14 days government quarantine.

Those cleared to return will be contacted; please do not call the Travel Helpline.

Only those persons authorised by the Jamaican Honorary Consulate after registering on the JamCOVID website will be eligible to return to Jamaica.  

Travellers wishing to travel on subsequent flights are encouraged to register on the website now. The public are requested to refrain from calling the Governor’s Office for details of the flight but should call the Jamaican Honorary Consul with any queries.
