Foreign Affairs Ministry Addressing Non-Recognition Of Vaccinated Jamaicans By The UK


Foreign Affairs & Foreign Trade Minister Kamina Johnson-Smith says her Ministry has recognised that Jamaicansa are concerned about their vaccination status not being recognized in the UK.

This after the UK announced a raft of new measures that will take effect on October 4. These include United Kingdom Government not recognising fully vaccinated Jamaicans who intend to travel to that country, resulting in them having to adhere to UK quarantine rules.

Mrs Johnson-Smith says she “brought the issue of the vaccination programme to the attention of CARICOM for action last week, have engaged the UK govt on the issue at a technical level and that she’ll also raise the issue in upcoming bilateral meetings in the margins of the UN.
