    Required for Canadians , PCR test is done at Hedonism or Grand Lido Negril not more than 72 hours before you leave Jamaica. Book when you first arrive. Cost is around $140 per person. Allow over 48 hours to get your results back. Bring photo identification with you when you go for the test. Tests can be charged to your room. 3 things needed to get on plane to Jamaica from Canada 1) Official proof of being fully vaccinated (provincial QR code or hopefully by the time of our Dec 2 trip, a Federal proof of vaccination QR code 2) the Jamaican Travel Authorisation ( apply 3? days prior to trip) and 3) negative results of PCR test obtained within 72 hours before departure. Also within 72 hours of trip Google ' Help for ArriveCAN " to upload proof of vaccination. Must have a paper receipt from ArriveCAN or proof on ArriveCan app.

    No, thankfully. The 14 days are free at Hedonism , should a Canadian have a positive Covid PCR test and are required to wait 14 days in quarantine before being allowed on a flight back to Canada . However if a person is staying at Grand Lido Negril au Natural ( across the street from Hedo) they need to make arrangements through the resort's insurance company by filling out an online form www.bluediamondsresorts.com/medical-assistance
    PRIOR to their stay.
