Jamaica: the Latest Travel Advice from the German Federal Foreign Office

In response to an increased crime rate, a state of emergency has been declared for Saint James Parish, including Montego Bay, and will remain in place until 31 October 2018. As a result, the local police are authorised to use more intensive law enforcement activities. 

The main connection between the airport in Montego Bay and the piers containing the cruise liner terminals is being kept under particularly close surveillance and has been classified as safe.

We nevertheless ask that you remain particularly cautious, avoid going on any individual trips or excursions until further notice and ensure that you always follow any instructions given by local security forces.

Please carefully read through the travel and security advice provided by the German Federal Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt) and bear this in mind when on your travels.

Información importante sobre "equipaje inteligente"

Estos equipajes cuentas con una gama de características tales como báscula integrada, localizador por GPS, cargador portátil, etc… Todas estas funciones se alimentan con una batería de litio.

El nuevo reglamento de IATA 2018 sobre mercancías peligrosas no permite llevar estas maletas como equipaje facturado a menos que se retire la fuente de alimentación de litio (o power bank) y se transporte como equipaje de mano. 

Por favor, tenga en cuenta que únicamente se permite transportar dos piezas de repuesto de baterías de litio por persona.

El “equipaje inteligente” está autorizado como equipaje de mano siempre y cuando no sobrepase las medidas y el peso máximo permitidos para el equipaje en cabina.

Dominican Republic: Tourist Card Fee Now Included in Flight Fares

The entry requirements of the Dominican Republic stipulate that every tourist must have a Tourist Card before going through the passport control area upon arrival. Until now, tourists have been able to purchase the Tourist Card online, from machines at airports and ports or via travel agents or consulates. This requirement also applies to German tourists.

The new decree concerning this requirement stipulates that from 1st April 2018, the price of the Tourist Card will be added to the price of all air and sea travel tickets purchased by tourists for their journey to the Dominican Republic. The Condor booking systems are therefore being adapted to meet this new regulation and the Tourist Card fee of $10 will be automatically added to the price of Condor tickets.

This new procedure means that when travelling to the Dominican Republic, you are no longer required to independently purchase a Tourist Card. In the past, passengers arriving at the airports in Puerto Plata and Punta Cana were often confronted with a long wait because most tourists purchased their Tourist Cards from the machines at the airports upon arrival. With these new measures, the government hopes to optimise the Tourist Card procedure at local airports.

If you travel to the Dominican Republic by land, you are not affected by these new regulations. The previous procedure for land travel still applies.

Zanzibar: Yellow fever vaccination is now compulsory

According to information received from the Foreign office, contrary to previous advice, it is now official that evidence of yellow fever vaccination is required in order to enter Zanzibar. This also applies if you travel to Zanzibar from the Tanzanian mainland by sea or air.

These new requirements have been confirmed explicitly by the Tanzanian Embassy in Berlin (and on the website). However, if you are spending your holiday on the Tanzanian mainland only, this does not apply when travelling from Europe.
