PHILIPSBURG, St Maarten — Guyanese and Jamaicans will now have to get visas before they can visit the Dutch territory of St Maarten.

The announcement was made by St Maarten’s prime minister, Sarah Williams, who also has the portfolio of national security.

Williams made the announcement on a radio programme “People’s Voice” and said that the ministry of justice has already been instructed to enforce the visa requirement.

Nationals of Haiti and Dominican Republic also require visas to enter St Maarten.

Guyanese and Jamaicans also need entry certificates to enter Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands, and other British Overseas Territories.

For the past two decades a large number of Jamaicans and Guyanese have been living and working in St Maarten and the British Virgin Islands.
