Visas are frustrating. Jamaica is one of the top vacation destinations in the world. While the country’s borders are open to most international travelers, traveling visa-free to other countries is far from reality for Jamaicans.

For most Jamaicans it is not the lack of money that prevents them from going out and exploring the world, but the hefty fees and tourist visa restrictions. As most countries, including the United States, all European Union countries, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, and Australia require Jamaicans to have a visa before they can enter. Even some Caribbean destinations like the British Virgin Islands and Turks and Caicos have visa restrictions on Jamaican nationals.
