Jamaica and Guatemala have expanded the visa abolition agreement between both countries.

Holders of diplomatic and official passports have now been granted visa exemptions.

The agreement was signed yesterday by Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Kamina Johnson Smith and Guatemalan Foreign Minister, Carlos Raúl Morales Moscoso in the margins of the Organisation of American States General Assembly, in Cancun, Mexico.

Jamaica and Guatemala already have a Visa Abolishment Agreement for citizens who travel between the two countries for tourism purposes.

Last month, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic signed a visa waiver agreement for holders of diplomatic and official passports.
