QUESTION: We will be coming to Montego Bay in 2 weeks. When we vacation we like to bring Beef Jerky and Snack sticks to snack on when at the pools or beaches.
Can we bring in USDA inspected, in original sealed package Beef Jerky and Beef Snack Sticks?
ANSWER: by Devin, February 27, 2013
We are delighted that you have chosen Montego Bay, Jamaica as your vacation spot and hope that you will enjoy your stay here. Regrettably though is the fact that checks with The Jamaica Tourist Board and The Ministry of Agriculture have indicated that you will need a permit to take in the Beef Jerky and Beef Snack Sticks. Application for permit can be had at The Ministry of Agriculture through their website at www.moatrade.gov.jm.
We hope you may find other enjoyable snacks here on the island that will prove equally as refreshing as your Beef Jerky and Beef Snack Sticks or feel free to make your own snacks using our very own recipes from Grace Creative Kitchen’s website at http://graceskitchen.org/recipes/.
It may just be the thing you need to add more fun to your vacation.
