migrating to jamaica

by Marcia
(United Kingdom)

QUESTION: I was born in the UK, I am of Jamaican parentage. I have had a love affair with Jamaica for the past nine years and in that time, have been there 13 times!


Jamaica is an absolute paradise I adore it with all of my heart. I am going to live in Jamaica forever next September 2013.

I want to live near the beach, within no more than 15 to 20 minutes walking distance away less if possible.

The area's I would prefer are St Elizabeth, Westmoreland, Montego Bay, and Trelawny I am looking for private rented accommodation only and I would prefer furnished accommodation.

I will be living on my own, but have no worries about that, as we live in a world where crime unfortunately is part of life and is present in every single country(FACT).

USA's recent tragedy (shooting of kids in school) is proof of that. Can you advise me of any websites that meet my requirements I have already started packing and filling barrels.

Do you also have an up to date list of the current cost of living with such things as patties, takeaway meals, fresh fish, half of jerked chicken etc.

The next nine months cannot go fast enough I can't wait to become a Citizen of Jamaica.

ANSWER: by Devin, December 24, 2012

It is a great idea to make
Jamaica your home! Returning residents , other persons of Jamaican parentage and just the adventurous at heart find their stay here a very rewarding one.

The western end of the island that you have singled out is a plus with islanders and visitors to the island as there are so many attractions that keep them spellbound and wanting to come again.

For those wishing long-term stay and knowledge of the cost of living is of utmost importance as well as real estate. Take a look at this link for some information on cost of living.

There are many beach front properties on the western end of the island on rental, each having its own breath-taking view of the beach or lovely manicured mountain terrains.

St. Elizabeth, the bread-basket parish, Westmoreland, renowned for its many fishing beaches, Montego Bay, home to the most tourist accommodations and Trelawny, now down in history as the birth parish of the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt and women 200m sprint sensation, Veronica Campbell-Brown, form a part of Jamaica’s tourist mecca and has been home to many returning residents and short-term visitors to the island.

Welcome once more to Jamaica and we are happy that you have chosen our island as your home!
