Jamaica Immigration Lawyers Or Consultants?
Stuart, from South Africa, asked yet another timely question? Where can he find (or who can provide) immigration requirements for permanent residence in Jamaica?
I thought I'd share my response here so you can benefit from the information as well.

Hi Wellesley, firstly, may I congratulate you on a truly impressive and informative website? So please, keep up the good work.
From my side however, what I missed (may have overlooked though) is a list of immigration lawyers in Jamaica under the "your partners
" section of your website.
I have recently retired as a professional town and regional planner, and your website has inspired me to consider relocating to Jamaica, hence my need for a competent immigration lawyer, to advise me of the immigration requirements for permanent residence as a retiree, and to guide me through this process.
Any advice in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks and kind regards.
Thanks for another question - and a timely one too!
First, thanks for the commendation on my work on the website, I am am highly appreciative.
I am also elated to know that my website has inspired you to consider relocating to Jamaica.
You are right, I don't have a list (per se) of Jamaican immigration lawyers on my partners page, nor in fact anywhere on my site. But for good reason!
The truth is the process to relocate to Jamaica or get permanent residence in Jamaica is less cumbersome these days.
And that's probably why a lot of the Jamaican lawyers seems to specialize in (or prefer) US Immigration matters, meaning, they provide services to persons who are looking to migrate to the US, rather than persons looking to come to Jamaica.
I suspect it is also more profitable too!
But anyways...Where can you find information?
A lot of what you need to know is already covered on The Passport, Immigration and Citizenship Agency's website
However, in addition, I've written quite a detailed article on applying for extended stay or residency in Jamaica
as well. It includes some helpful links as well.
I suggest you explore those first.
However for additional guidance from a immigration consultant in Jamaica, I have someone in mind, but I'll need to consult with him before providing his contact information here.
As soon as I do, I'll update this post.
Update: As promised, I have a Jamaica immigration consultant who is more that able and willing to help. His name is Garth Ramsay of Garth Ramsay and Associates, you can contact his office at 876-940-2999.
By the way, for those interested in the services of a US immigration
lawyer in Jamaica! You just need to do a simple Google Search and they'll pop up!
That said, other local attorneys in Jamaica do provide advice on migrating to Jamaica.
Unfortanately I don't know them all, but if you need a current list of qualified and reputable lawyers in Jamaica, I recommend you review the current list of practicing attorneys in Jamaica
, available at the General Legal Council's website
At this point they listed over 2,000 qualified lawyers in Jamaica!
You may also find my articles on moving to Jamaica
and guidelines for returning residents
I hope this helps.
