Rewards program aimed at the estimated 80% of U.S. citizens who do
not have a passport.
According to JTB
figures, the U.S. market accounted for 786,000 visitors between
January and July this year, or about 70% of the island's total
designed to encourage travelers to apply for their passports as
soon as possible, include:
break: Free Blue Mountain coffee and passport information
will be handed out and passport applications taken at commuter rail
terminals in Chicago, New York and Washington, through
First-timers: Visitors who travel to Jamaica after Jan. 23
and have Jamaica stamped first in their passports will receive
special credits that equal the amount spent on the passport
application. The incentives include spa treatments, room upgrades,
greens fees, and more. The credit applies to all visitors who show
proof of the cost of a new passport. For a list of participating
hotels, visit www.visitjamaica.com/rewards.
