Traveling to Jamaica with Narcotics - type prescription medications.
(New Mexico, USA)
I am coming to visit with a friend who is from Kingston in the next few weeks.
My issue is I am dealing with severe nerve damage in my spine and take some very strong meds to deal with the pain associated with this disability.
1st is Methadone, the second is a liquid concentrate of Morphine Sulfate.
What will happen when I get to Jamaican Customs with these particular medicines? If you are not certain can you tell me where to go and ask?
ANSWER: by Wellesley Gayle January 20, 2010
I spoke with someone at the Passenger Control unit of Jamaica Customs at the Sangster's Int'l airport.
She said that as long as you are travelling with the medications and they have your name listed on them, you should be OK.
If however, they will be sent separately, you'll need to get a pharmaceutical permit.
I would suggest you contact them as well, their numbers are 876- 952-2469 or 876- 952-0079.
I hope that helps.
Stay in touch.
