The Jamaican Consulate in Miami will continue its series of community outreach, targeted at Jamaican nationals in Florida, with a session at the Grace Episcopal Church, 3600 Australian Avenue, Palm Beach County on March 17.
The session, which will begin at 9:30 a.m., will cover consular services; the processing of Jamaican passport and citizenship applications; and the provision of information about land titles and property valuations in Jamaica.
The team of resource persons will include representatives from the Consulate, Immigration and Passport Services, as well as the National Land Agency (NLA).
To ensure the efficient and timely processing of applications submitted, persons are being reminded to produce the necessary supporting documents and fees.
The event is the second in a series of outreach sessions, organised by the Jamaican Consulate General with partnering agencies, to provide Jamaican nationals with pertinent information and support services.
More than 200 Jamaicans turned out for the last event held at the Lauderdale Lakes Community Council last October, where they submitted applications for passport, citizenship, and the 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 said that the sessions would help to improve co-operation between the Consulate and the Jamaican community, making the mission more client-friendly.
For information on the required documents and fees, persons can call the Jamaica Consulate General at 305-374-8431, extensions 221, 232, 238; or visit
