No, because the aircraft would be parked on ground, each person would be expected to use their return legs. The flight bringing people on the second rotation would do same and take back those that came with it.

This makes it impossible to join the second charter to return unless you forfeit your return seat (no financial value) and buy an additional ticket on the second charter (where you forfeit the first leg) and use your return ticket back into Nigeria.

VISA

  • Is Jamaican visa difficult to obtain?

Contrary to popular opinion, the Jamaican visa is not difficult to obtain.

In the absence of a direct flight, travelling to Jamaica has always been via the UK or the US which meant an additional visa of any of those countries in addition to your Jamaican visa.

With this direct flight, there would be no need for these additional visas (UK or U.S).

  • Is the visa guaranteed?

All visas are granted at the discretion of the consulate. Should you be found eligible, your visa would be granted (kindly check requirements in visa section on the website). Please also note, even though the consulate grants the visa, entry into Jamaica is determined by the border and immigration. Should they find you non-satisfactory, they can deny your entry.

From submission to collection, kindly give 2 weeks.

You need to ensure they are in the resilient corridor, and that they are covid-19 certified otherwise, you would need to self isolate for 14 days.
