Moving to Jamaica from UK

Jamaica is a popular destination for retirees and families from the UK, and no wonder. As a commonwealth, anglophone country there’s a lot that’s familiar about it. Then there’s the sunshine, the music, the beaches and the exceptionally friendly people. Jamaica covers 4,111 square miles and has just 2.8 million inhabitants – which leaves a large slice of paradise for expats.

Kingston is the island’s capital city and it’s larger than you might imagine. Around a fifth of the population live there and it’s known for its food, its music (of course) and its cosmopolitan culture. You may find yourself opting instead for the quieter Portmore, just 15 km from the capital. There’s also Jamaica’s historic capital, St Andrew, offering historic architecture and a stunning mountainside location.


Choose Schepens for Your Removals to Jamaica

If you’re moving to Jamaica for work, a new start, or you’re looking forward to retire there, you’ll welcome the support of an experienced international removals company with local knowledge. Schepens has been helping people to move since 1911, so we’ve had plenty of time to learn the business! We’re a 4th generation, family-run business with an excellent track record when it comes to international removals.

Moving to Jamaica from UK is a big project, which is why we allocate our clients with a dedicated Move Co-ordinator. Your co-ordinator will have knowledge of the location and experience in removals to Jamaica. Together you’ll create a ‘Removals Plan’ detailing all the services you will need, and deadlines that will have to be hit for a successful move.

Schepens for International Removals to Jamaica and Storage

Our aim is to synchronise the arrival of your goods and furniture with the day that you move to your new home on the island. We ship regularly to Jamaica so we’re able to be flexible when offering shipping dates. We can also offer clients a choice of sole use, or shared containers to ship their goods. Sole use containers take 3-5 weeks to arrive, and shared containers take 6-10.

A move to Jamaica is a radical change in lifestyle. Many of our clients decide to leave some of their furniture and goods in UK storage. Schepens can arrange for a door-to-door storage service should you require it. Our storage facilities feature 24 hour security, controlled and maintained humidity and temperature, and easy access to your container throughout the week.

Obtaining a Residence Permit in Jamaica

As a UK citizen, you don’t need a visa to travel to Jamaica. On arrival your passport will be stamped with a date 3 months hence. This is the length of time visitors are allowed to stay. To apply for permanent residence you will need to demonstrate that you intend to retire to the country, that you have permanent employment, are married to a Jamaican, or that you are financially independent.

Healthcare in Jamaica

There are between 30-40 public hospitals in Jamaica offering free healthcare and medical services to the country’s residents and citizens. Expats are advised, however, to take out private health insurance as the quality free healthcare can be patchy. Some severe health conditions cannot be treated on the island, so insurance should also cover the need for emergency evacuation.

Education in Jamaica

One thing that will seem familiar in Jamaica is education, as it’s based on the British system. The Ministry of Education administers around 1,000 Jamaican schools. As with any education provision there is no uniformity of standard. The top schools, though, such as Ardenne, Glenmuir, Immaculate Conception and Campion College are ranked extremely high in terms of global educational achievement.

A Range of Schepens Services

Removals to JamaicaMoving to Jamaica will be unlike any other move you’ve ever made – which is why we create bespoke removals packages for every single client.
