SUBJECT: COUNTRY CLEARANCE GRANTED: DOT JOSEPH TRAINI

REF: SECSTATE 134914



1. Post grants country clearance to Joseph Traini,
International Transportation Specialist of the Office of the
Secretary, Office of International Transportation and Trade

SIPDIS
of the U.S. Department of Transportation for travel to
Jamaica August 21, 2006 through August 27, 2006. Post
understands the traveler is to participate in a meeting of
the Western Hemisphere Transportation Initiative (WHTI) and a
Maritime Working Group (MWG) meeting.



2. The Control Officer for this visit will be Economic
Officer John Morgan, telephone number (876) 935-6028; Fax no.
(876) 935-6029.



3. Post confirms that no additional assistance is required.



4. Visitors traveling to Jamaica for periods of 14 or fewer
days do not require a visa.



5. There has been no specific threat directed against
official American visitors or American tourists who visit
Jamaica. However, Jamaica has been designated a high threat
country because of street crime. It is recommended that
caution be exercised while traveling in Kingston. Walking
after dark is not advised. Care should be taken if driving at
night. Overall, the same level of awareness should be
exercised as in a similar sized city in the United States.



6. Travelers' checks can be exchanged for Jamaican dollars at
a local bank located near the Embassy. ATM machines are also
available.
