PREPARING FOR THE TRIP

What documents will I need to travel?

U.S. citizens need only a valid U.S. Passport.  Non-U.S. citizens need a valid Passport from your country of birth and a Jamaican Visa (if necessary from your country of birth).

Won By One To Jamaica also requires that each team member completes and notarizes a participation form which is distributed through the group leader. 
Each participant must have a short-term mission insurance policy and attach proof of that policy to the above-mentioned participation form. We recommend the iTravel Insured SE travel insurance plan:
