Jamaica tourist arrivals up for October 2022

The Jamaican tourism sector is on track for record arrivals for the month of October 2022, surpassing pre-pandemic levels. According to the Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett, preliminary figures released by the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) for the first three weeks of October show stopover visitor arrivals of 1,23,514.

This topped figures for the same period in October 2019 by some 10,026, which saw 113,488 tourists visiting Jamaica. Stopover arrivals for the same period in October 2020 stood at 27,849, a significant decline because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but increased to 72,203 for the same three-week period in October 2021, when the sector began to show recovery from the pandemic.

“Overall, 2022 is proving to be a record year for arrivals. Our numbers continue to grow, and October is also shaping up to be another record-breaking month,” the minister said at the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association’s (JHTA) 60th anniversary gala dinner held at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa, St James.

Bartlett expects the figures for October “to be even more impressive when the cruise figures are tallied”.
