Jamaica poised for Saudi Arabia tourism deal

In an effort to bring two destinations together in the tourism sector, Saudi Arabia and the Caribbean destination of Jamaica are moving toward the signing of a memorandum of understanding.

The discussions between the two countries were initiated in 2021, seeking ways to collaborate on rebuilding tourism as the world recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Talks were held during a visit of Jamaica minister of tourism, Edmund Bartlett, to Saudi Arabia during the Future Investment Initiative event in Riyadh.

Any route, likely to be operated by Saudi flag-carrier Saudia, would allow visitors from the Middle East to visit the Caribbean destination without the need to pass through the United States, reducing bureaucratic hurdles.
