REF: SAN JOSE 2580

1. Embassy Kingston grants country clearance to Regional
Environmental Specialist Andrea Borel to travel to Jamaica November
28 to December 1, 2006, to attend a meeting on the action plan for
the Caribbean Environment Program, as well as the White Water to
Blue Water Council meeting in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Embassy point
of contact is Economic Officer John Morgan who can be reached at (w)
876-935-6028.

2. Embassy understands that no further assistance is requested.

3. Visitors traveling to Jamaica for periods less than two weeks do
not require a visa.

4. There has been no specific threat directed against official
American visitors or American tourists who visit Jamaica. However,
Jamaica has been designated a high threat country because of street
crime. It is recommended that caution be exercised while traveling
in Montego Bay. Walking after dark is not advised. Care should be
taken if driving at night. Overall, the same level of awareness
should be exercised as in a similar-sized city in the United
States.

5. Travelers' checks can be exchanged for Jamaican dollars at most
tourist hotels in Montego Bay. ATM machines are also available.
