[On becoming a tenant in Jamaica
Traveling to Jamaica can be difficult, especially when you are unaware of your rights. Difficulties at times present themselves only after you’ve decided to stay on in the country for extended periods, of say more than two weeks. Even more challenging is the onslaught of high prices, where you do not beforehand equip yourself with knowledge. This goes for residence of any kind.
I read your article on being a tenant in Jamaica (see excerpt above) with great interest.
I was in Jamaica last year, have many friends there & thought I should like to become a resident. I looked into the possibilities but the information was complicated. I think people are allowed to stay for 6 months, depart & return again but to become a resident it seemed I would have to apply when there on a trip, return home, (although I have a British Passport I live in France), wait for reply from Jamaican authorities, return to Jamaica after sending forms back to be interviewed by the authorities. After that I am unclear as to the proceedure, I have seached the Jamaican websites but all seem to be orientated towards working in Jamaica, I am retired?
Can you help please?
Thanks in advance. M-A
