USC getting Jamaican Citizenship

Recommended Posts


I have not applied so I can't answer how long it takes. There are a few websites that list all the documentation needed and the requirements. It's a start.

You go to PICA 25 Constant Spring Rd Upstairs


US PP & birth cert

Marriage cert

Copy of spouse Bio page of their PP (if spouse is Jamaican)

Police record from your country (recent)

If already a holder of JA work permit take that

Character ref letters

I think form should be signed by JP

You get citizenship easier if a parent or grandparent is Jamaican (you need their birth cert to claim that right)

If seeking citizenship thru yrs of working living in Jamaica, have a letter from employees & tax payment info

If opening a biz to obtain citizenship...have all plans and biz funding proof, also support the idea of hiring

a few JAs in biz...good luck

I got my jamaican citizenship at the jamaican embassy in New York. I carried my fathers birth certificate and my birth paper to prove that he was my father. The process took me about 2 1/2 months and it was very easy and simple. But that's if you are applying thru a parent. And the cost was about 2 something.
