I am "moving" to Jamaica. I put quotes around moving because I always have a place to stay here in the US and I plan to stay here at least three months out of the year. My husband has a comfortable house just waiting for us to come home to it outside of Falmouth in Jamaica and after months of talking it over we have decided to move there.

Anyway, I was wondering if anybody had any advice for me...how long can I legally stay as the wife of a Jamaican citizen, how do become authorized to work, and how do I file for our son to become a dual citizen?

Any advice is appreciated!

I don't have any advice for you, but I wanted to wish you luck! BTW I don't think you are crazy at all. I think it's nice to live part (or even most) of the year in Jamaica, especially during the winter.

Best of Luck to you, as i hope to be doing about the same as soon as i can arrange it. Since i have no idea where our case is going...due to health and legal issues...i can only hope to figure out how to stay for longer than 2-3 weeks. My honey is near Salt marsh and i love the area, although live is hard ...nothing is quite as hard as long distance relationships. at my age, i don't have the time to spend longing and imagining our life together...just want to get it on! So ....Very best wishes for success and happiness. soak up the heat/sun/vibes for the rest of us cooling, chillin and dreaming. Blessings along the way...culture1

Best of luck, and I agree to get in touch with Jamerican - she is doing it (at least for a time) - and has a friend who has lived there for lengthy periods, who would be able to answer your questions -

Dual citizenship is really easy to get. I can guide you there if you PM me.

You can also contact Journee. She's doing it too.

Good luck on the move. Is you husband here with you now? I think it much easier for you to become a Jamaican citizen. However, if your husband has Greencard and is living in Jamaica...he will have to forfeit the greencard. As the greencard is for permanent residents in the US.

How exciting to move to Jamaica!!!!

It is really easy to do by mail from the us. Without all that additional information to include.

Yeah, I agree with KK. Be careful about the time spent OUT of the US. It could effect any future plans. You dont' want to have to start all over again.

Thanks for all of the kind words and advice. I am getting ready to do some research here soon...some of you might get a pm from me.

Yes my husband is here with me now and he has a two year greencard. We are planning on coming back to the US as much as we need to be able to still file to remove conditions when the time comes.
