For more information on drone laws in Jamaica, check out this notice.
To operate commercially, you must have a permit. You can get one through this link. For approval, make a written application to JCAA. Hold on till you get confirmation that your application was affirmative.
When flying your drone for recreational purposes, you do not need a permit.
When traveling with your drone, pack them as carry-on cargo. The notion is guided by the Montreal convention that limits airlines to accept liability exceeding $1000. For that reason alone, avoiding carrying drones that exceed that amount in value.
International flights occasionally lose cargo and property when making connections, for that reason any drone above that amount should be shipped using providers like DHL or FedEx
