Jamaica Money Transfer Services 
by Rosemarie Gordon-Cole

Did you know that remittances and money transfer to Jamaica is currently the largest foreign exchange earner?

Yep, and it continues to be all over the media. Next in line is tourism.

Thanks to the various money transfer systems and services that enable the diaspora & friends to send money back to this our beloved island.

As it relates to wire transfer, most if not all banks provides this service. 
Of course, in order to do this though you must be a member of that particular bank.

But even if you do not have a bank account, trying to connect to family and friends in a financial way is still one of the easiest thing to accomplish on your “things to do list” nowadays.

The following companies are some of the popular agencies that makes it possible to do this from the comfort of your special easy chair with the use of your telephone or the internet.

Or, if you are like my mother, and prefers to stay as far away as possible from the computer, then a visit to any of the numerous licensed organizations listed below enables you to do just that with a personal touch.

These are the ones most widely used:

  • Alliance Financial Service Ltd
  • Capital and Credit Remittance Ltd.
  • COK Remittance Service Ltd.
  • GraceKennedy Remittance Service Ltd.
  • JN Money Transfer Service Ltd.
  • Lasco Financial Services Ltd.
  • NCB Remittance Service (Jamaica Ltd.)
  • Supreme Ventures Financial Service Ltd.
  • VMBS Money Transfer Service Ltd.
  • ...and many more!

Most of the organizations listed above acts as agents for Western Union or MoneyGram.

By the way, how much do you know about these two organizations?

Western Union

Western Union has been around forever - I mean like more than 160 years, and has about 485,000 agent locations spread out over 200 countries, yes including the US, CA and UK!

It started in New York and was called New York and Mississippi Valley Printing Telegraph Company, the name was later changed to Western Union.

GraceKennedy Remittance Service Ltd. a subsidiary of Grace Kennedy Group of Companies is the exclusive agent for Western Union in Jamaica. This marriage was consummated some 20 years ago.

Their head office is located at:

2-Trafford Place,
Kingston 5
Telephone: (876) 929-1331


The second largest money transfer business, MoneyGram has its roots in Minneapolis, USA, and has been providing remittance services for over 70 years.

It has over 250,000 agents in more than 190 countries and is accessible in Jamaica anywhere you see the MoneyGram sign.

By the way, it is been reported that these services are also used by unscrupulous individuals to solicit money from naive victims, but by and large, these media have truly helped to transform Jamaica's fragile economy.
