Jamaica Consulate office in South Florida organizing outreach program for Jamaicans in Palm Beach

The Jamaican Consulate General in Miami will continue its series of community outreach programs, the second to be staged in Palm Beach County on Saturday, March 21st at the Grace Episcopal Church, 3600 Australian Avenue, starting at 9: 30 a.m.

A range of direct client services will cover the processing of Jamaican passport and citizenship applications, and consular services and information about land titles and property valuations in Jamaica.

The team will include representatives from the Consulate, Immigration and Passport Services as well as the National Land Agency.

To ensure the efficient and timely processing of any application submitted, persons are being reminded of the need to produce the necessary supporting documents and fees. In this regard, interested persons can contact the Jamaica Consulate General at 305-374-8431 extensions 221, 232 o2 238, and on line at www.jamaicacgmiami.org and the National Land Agency at www.nla.gov.jm

The event, the second organized by the Jamaican Consulate General with partnering agencies, continues the series of outreach activities aimed at providing Jamaican nationals with the pertinent and personal information.

More than 200 Jamaican nationals turned out to the last event held at the Lauderdale Lakes Community Council, last October, at which time applications were submitted for passports, citizenships and processing of vital records such as birth, death and marriage certificates.

The series of quarterly community outreach events were initiated by Consul General Sandra Grant Griffiths who encouraged active participation from the Diaspora. She pointed out through this course of action an exchange of information from the community will provide support activities and find opportunities for mutual cooperation, making the overseas Missions more ‘user friendly.’
