QUESTION:

How can I make a payment from the U.S.A to National Housing Trust in Jamaica?



ANSWER: by Wellesley August 04, 2011

Hi Lori,

I called the trust, and basically, it depends on whether you are making contributions or mortgage payments.

If Mortgage Payments:

In many cases, you can use your local bank's online system. Scotia Bank for example, has an online facility that allows you to make it directly to the trust.

They also have a telephone service (telescotia) that faciliates that. I would think that most of the established banks would have either of the two, or both, systems in place.

You could also set it up as a standing order with your bank for payments to be made on a monthly basis. Both Scotia and National Commercial Bank, two of the more recognized banks here does have these systems.

I'd suggest you contact your bank (local or overseas), and have them discuss the options with you.

By the way, you could also mail a money order to the NHT as well. They do accept that.

If Contributions

The options here might not be as wide, but money order is also accepted here. Again, just check with your financial institution to see how they can accomodate you.

Good Luck Lori!

Wellesley
