While all of our lives have changed since the Covid-19 pandemic, we can still do some of the things we are used to doing. The Tryall Club has worked diligently to implement the safety standards recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) and enforced by the government of Jamaica.
Here is what to expect when you are planning to visit Jamaica and The Tryall Club.
What you must do before travelling to Jamaica
As of March 1, 2022, travellers will no longer be required to obtain a travel authorization through the Visitjamaica or Jamcovid websites, or quarantine to enter the country. However, passengers will need to complete and submit Jamaica’s Immigration and Customs C5 declaration form. The form can be accessed and completed online through the following link https://enterjamaica.com prior to arrival. Effective April 16, 2022, persons traveling to Jamaica will no longer be required to present a negative Covid-19 test certificate or wear masks in an enclosed place to which the public has access. For details on Jamaica's Entry Protocols, go to www.visitjamaica.com.
What if I test positive for Covid-19 because I had the virus but am no longer Contagious?
Medical doctors say up to 40% of persons who tested positive for Covid-19 will still test positive at three (3) weeks. It can take months before a negative test is received. We suggest, for those persons who may fall within this category that documentation from your medical practitioner outlining all details is obtained, so that they may be presented to the local authorities. Please ensure that this specific question is asked when applying for your Travel Authorization. Full disclosure will determine whether Authorization is granted or not to travel to the island.
When you arrive in Jamaica
Protocols are fully implemented at the international airports. You will arrive at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay where you will go through Immigration and Customs. Once you exit the Customs Hall, the Tryall Club Airport Desk – Desk #20 - will be located to the left within the Ground Transportation Hall. You will be greeted by our airport representative, wearing a mask. The representative will have you sanitize, verify your name/s on the Arrival List and then escort you to your waiting private hotel transfer. Our vehicles are sanitized between transfers and your driver, who will also be wearing a mask, will ask that you sanitize prior to entering the vehicle.
When you arrive at The Tryall Club
At the main gate of the property, our security guard will do a temperature check of all the occupants within the vehicle. Once all is well, the vehicle will be granted access and you will be transported to the Great House for check in. At the Lobby, our Bell Man will welcome you and remove your bags which will then be sanitized. As you enter the Front Desk area, the sanitization station will prompt you to sanitize prior to entering. Most villa arrivals proceed directly to their booked villa for a private check-in there. If villa guests are checked in at the Front Desk, they will be transferred to their villa thereafter.
What If I have a Positive Covid-19 result before departing Tryall Club?
In the unlikely event that a guest should test positive for Covid-19, we have put in place a few measures.
• Villa quarantine: there are select villas which will be available for quarantine should this be a necessity, at a special compassionate rate to guests. If the resident villa is one of the select quarantine villas and does not have a scheduled arrival, the guest may opt to use that villa for quarantine.
Are there any other costs associated with Villa quarantine?
All the villa staff will have to be immediately evacuated and tested.
*The tests for the staff will be charged to the guest.
*this may vary depending on the villa
• Private aeromedical transport (door-to-door service): we understand that if there are any guests who test positive, there might be the desire to return home immediately. We have partnered with Covac Global who will provide this service to those guests. Click here to learn more...
