Jamaica and Russia Sign Visa Waiver Agreement

FOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTER KAMINA JOHNSON SMITH SIGNED THE AGREEMENT WITH THE MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION, SERGEI LAVROV IN THE MARGINS OF THE 73RD SESSION OF THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN NEW YORK.

Jamaica and Russia have signed a reciprocal agreement to waive the visa requirement for travel to their respective countries.

The agreement will allow mutual visits of citizens of Jamaica and Russia for up to 90 days per year for tourism, cultural exchange or business purposes.

Foreign Affairs Minister Kamina Johnson Smith signed the agreement with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Sergei Lavrov in the margins of the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

“Both minister Lavrov and I agreed that the Visa Abolition Agreement will not only facilitate increased people to people exchanges, but will support the growth of tourism. We were both pleased to note in this regard, that new flights commenced this year between Moscow and Montego Bay,” she said.

Johnson Smith said the signing of the reciprocal Visa Exemption Agreement brings parity in terms of ease of travel for nationals from both countries, noting that a 2014 arrangement had allowed entry into Jamaica by Russians, which arrangement had also been clarified by the new agreement.

She said the agreement would undoubtedly facilitate increased trade and economic activities between the countries, and allow nationals the opportunity to travel more easily to either country for pleasure.

Jamaicans in Russia, making money, prostitution, that's about it. Drug mule. I guarantee the U.S., will not like it, cause the Russian devil's,will bring nothing but trouble. Jamaica, is so greedy to rub elbows with these devil country's, Russia, China, I would like to know what trade are they going to be doing with Russia. Jamaica, better not piss the U.S. off.

Why would anyone in their right mind agree to this. Russia is known as one of the worst offenders when it comes to human trafficking and forced labor, especially children. The country is a tier 3 offender which means they make little to no effort to prevent human trafficking from occurring in the first place. Jamaica is a tier 2 so at least they make some effort which is going to be compromised by this deal. On top of trafficking Russia has a HUGE drug problem that has people dropping like flies. The only benefit I see out of this will be Jamaicans going to Russia and eventually making their way to other European countries to try and make a better life for themselves.

This makes absolutely no sense b/c, and I hate to make a blanket statement, the Russians are some of the most racists Euro's on the Earth. To find out how some of our brethren have been savagely attacked on Russian soil, I can only scratch my head at trying to figure out what their true ulterior motive is. AND THE ONLY THING THAT COMES TO MIND IS THE RICHNESS OF MELANIN THAT FREELY ROAMS ABOUT IN JAMAICA. SORRY TO TELL YOU BUT, THE FLATASS NATURE OF THEIR WOMEN IN RUSSIA COULD NEVER COMPARE TO THE AFRICAN GODDESSES THAT ARE BOOTIFUL BEYOND COMPARISON. AND LET ME BE CLEAR, THAT IS JUST ONE ASPECT THAT CAN'T BE MATCHED. LOLOL THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THE ORIGINAL.

@joy, your right. Black people are not welcome in Russia, we don't speak or understand their language. Russia, will send their hitmen on Jamaican soil. Why is Jamaica, letting these non English speaking people in the country? They are not doing trade, I guarantee the U.S., will not like Jamaica,coming up with Russia. Jamaica, is not trading with Russia, how many Jamaican curizens can afford to visit Russia. Jamaica. Need abetter leader.
