Frequently Asked Questions

Do your own research on this matter as the laws may change. Carrying up to two ounces of cannabis on your person is no longer a criminal offense but can still result in fines. It is important to remember that carrying any more significant amount of cannabis is still ILLEGAL, as well as possessing cannabis as a minor.

Purchasing and enjoying cannabis on your vacation to Jamaica has become much easier in recent years, but there are still a few key things you need to know once you get to the island.  Amendments to the Dangerous Drug Act in 2015 allowed for the creation of medical marijuana dispensaries. These are currently the only places where travelers can legally buy cannabis in the country. Before visiting the “herb house,” as they are sometimes called, make sure to have your I.D. and cash handy. You will also need to get medical clearance for the purchase and use of cannabis, but luckily the process of obtaining a card is flexible and can be done within minutes.

These medical cards are offered on-site at dispensaries and even can be purchased at the airport for about $10. The government also allows all U.S. medical cards to be accepted at dispensaries, so there is no need to buy a new one if you’re already a medical marijuana patient.

It is advised that everyone traveling to Jamaica have a valid passport.

A passport is always required for international air travel. U.S. citizens are generally required to present a valid U.S. passport when traveling to Jamaica, as well as proof of anticipated departure from Jamaica…meaning return flight ticket.

420Jamaicatours and Bon Voyage Travel Services are NOT responsible if passengers do not carry proper identification.

Passport:  Apply for your passport several months in advance for a new passport. If you already have one, it should be valid for at least six months after you return home and have two or more blank pages, depending on your destination. Otherwise, some countries may not let you enter.

Apply for, or if necessary, renew your passport as soon as possible.  There is currently a backlog of applications.
