Traveling to Jamaica with Narcotics - type prescription medications.

by Es
(New Mexico, USA)

QUESTION:.

Hey,

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?
Thanks!

ANSWER: by Wellesley Gayle

Hi Es,

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 however also suggest you contact them as well, their numbers are 876- 952-2469 or 876- 952-0079.

I hope that helps.

Stay in touch.

I am moving to Jamaica for work purposes and need narcotic pain medication to properly function on a day to day basis. I am going to visit my United States doctor prior to leaving and have him issue me a three month supply. Will I have any problems going through customs? I cannot risk them getting confiscated. I would have to turn around and come back if that happened. My next question is, should I establish a relationship with a doctor in montego bay or come back to the US every three months? If I am forced to come back to the states every three months will my health insurance ship my medication to me outside the United States? If so what is needed for me to accomplish mail order to Jamaica?
