Jamaica's Consulate General Continues Outreach

 MIAMI - The Jamaica Consulate General in Miami will continue its community outreach in Tampa, Northwest Florida, on September 24 to 25, providing a range of consular services to nearly 15,000 Jamaican nationals residing in the area.

Services to be provided include processing of passport and citizenship applications; birth, death and marriage applications, and providing financial and investment information.

The event will be held at the University Area Community Development Centre, located at 14013 North 22nd Street.

A team of resource persons from partnering agencies will be on hand to offer direct client services, and persons will be given an opportunity to make inquiries and receive relevant information first hand.

Some of the partnering agencies are: Registrar General's Department (RGD), National Land Agency (NLA), National Housing Trust (NHT), Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS), Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB), and GraceKennedy Remittance/Western Union.

To ensure efficient and timely processing of applications, persons are reminded to have on hand, the necessary supporting documents and fees.


On September 24, Jamaican Consul General, Sandra Grant Griffiths, will address nationals and friends of the Diaspora, at a Reception and Town Hall meeting starting at 6:00 p.m.

Earlier that day, the Consul General will visit the University of South Florida, where she is expected to meet with Jamaican students.

Jamaicans living in Lauderdale Lakes, Lauderhill, West Palm Beach, Orlando, Atlanta and Houston have benefitted from outreach programmes staged in these areas. The series of quarterly outreach events was initiated by the Consul General two years ago, to make the services of the Consulate more user-friendly, while at the same time seeking to improve co-operation between the Consulate and the partnering agencies.
