Foreign nationals require an entry visa to conduct business activities in Jamaica, unless exempt based on nationality. Regardless of nationality, business visits are limited to an authorized stay of 30 consecutive days per entry, and a cumulative maximum stay of six months per calendar year. 
 
Foreign nationals require a Work Permit to conduct work activities in Jamaica. Work permits are valid for the period granted by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security; the minimum period is three months and the maximum period is three years.
 
Once the work permit is approved, the foreign national travels to Jamaica to have the work permit endorsed in the passport and obtains a multiple re-entry visa, where applicable. The foreign national also obtains a work permit identity card from the Ministry of Labour and Social Security.​
 
Qualified workers from ​CARICOM may be exempt from work permit requirements, generally for up to six months, extendable in country.
