Four official versions exist, one featuring British singer Natasha Bedingfield providing guest vocals in English, another one featuring French-Canadian singer Marie-Mai, providing guest vocals in French; a version in Chinese featuring Chinese pop singer Kelly Cha, and an Indonesian version featuring Kotak lead vocalist Tantri.
In a review in the Entertainment Weekly magazine, the song received a "B+" rating. The review commented that the song is a "surprisingly lovely pop-punk pounder about intercontinental relationships." Joe DeAndrea from Absolute Punk said that "Jet Lag is Simple Plan's first big single in a long time, almost in vein of No Pads' "I'd Do Anything." Not as rocking, but packs the same similar punch." Davey Boy from Sputnikmusic was also positive, saying that "English pop songstress Natasha Bedingfield fares best with the call and response vocals of 'Jet Lag' making for an effective radio pop-rocker that plies the oft-used theme of long-distance relationships."
The music video for "Jet Lag" was released on May 4, 2011 which features Natasha Bedingfield in a room at the Toronto Sheraton Gateway Hotel, and the band at Toronto Pearson International Airport. The band performs within the airport while Pierre Bouvier gets ready for boarding the flight to his girlfriend, who is played by Natasha Bedingfield.
The band also released a Mandarin Chinese version of "Jet Lag" featuring Chinese pop star Kelly Cha.
As well as the two main versions featuring either Natasha Bedingfield or Marie-Mai, there have been many other versions performed live with other artists.
