Guide for expatriates in Kingston (Jamaica)

15 February, 2016 08:22  EasyExpat EasyExpat

Expat guide: Kingston, Jamaica We are proud to launch our new city guide for expatriates in Kingston, Jamaica.

Jamaica is an island in the Caribbean, just south of Cuba. On a clear day, you may see the tip of Cuba from Jamaica's north coast. The island is the third largest of the Caribbean with land area of nearly 11,000 sq km.

The country is divided into 12 parishes - each with a parish capital or main town. The capital city of Jamaica is Kingston, in the parish of the same name. Montego Bay in St James is the other city in Jamaica.

Kingston and St Andrew are two of the most urbanized parishes, and the people have a way to refer to both as Kingston. Most of the area between them, i.e. Kingston and urban St Andrew, is what is called the Kingston Metropolitan Area (KMA).

A little over a quarter (28%) of the 1.3 MN labour force of Jamaica is from Kingston and St Andrew. This is just about the same for the proportion (29%) of the employed labour force from those parishes. Most of the employment in the KMA is in trading, one of the key drivers of the national economy.

You will find the usual articles in our guide to prepare your expatriation to Kingston and manage your life once in there: Overview, Job, Passport, Visa & Permits, International Removal Companies, Finding Accommodation in Jamaica, Work, Benefits and Tax, Moving in, Education, Health, Practical Life (banks, transport, shopping...), Entertainment...

You can also discuss and share experience about Jamaica in our forum.

Last but not least, you can download the full guide in PDF format, in order to read quietly and maybe to upload on your mobile or tablet PC/iPad.
