Hi

I would like to hear from anyone who has moved or is planning to move to Jamaica and what their experiences are. My mother is Jamacian but has lived in England for nearly 50 years and even though she has visited the island over the years she is still apprehensive about us all moving. I am excited. What I really need help with is how do I find a job?

We have enough family to help us, but I would like to hear from anyone who has experience of landing themself work and what professions they would prefer. Also, what type of properties do they rent and are they long or short term.

Hello,

Please visit my Blog site, as I share ideas about what day to day life here in Kingston and a few post are even from others who moved to the Island.

You may find some of it helpful, also feel free to download our free e-book
" 10 1/2 Mistakes People Make When Moving to Jamaica"

Send me some email should you have further questions.

Living in JA is clearly doable, as 2.7 million plus people currently live here in the sun and mnay absolutely love it, while other gripe.

As an Expat one simply needs to be realistic and not compare day to day life with a fully developed country, something we all appear to do unfortunately.

Where do you plan on moving to on the Island? as I know this woman who lives in Motegobay who assist people with building houses in Montegobay . She also moved to the Island from Jamaica several years ago.

Hi

I was born in the UK and moved to Jamaica 2 years ago leaving all my family and friends behind. I miss them terribly but I really wanted a better quality of life and wanted to be in a country where no one tells me I cant do this or that!

First and most importtant thing is dont come to Jamaica if you are going to constantly compare it to UK. If you are looking for opportunities there are plenty. However, you need to just find a different way of doing things.

I recently completed my Real Estate course and am about to obtain my license all because I was fed up of hearing about the bad experiences returnees faced upon returning to Jamaica. So for me that is an opportunity I have carved out for myself because I am constantly being asked for help in that area and much more.

I am glad to see that you are researching before making the trip I would also suggest coming over to live for between 4-6 months if possible and get a real feel for living here. You do have to take into account where in Jamaica you want to live, what are the ameneties in your chosen area, transport etc.

I would like to conclude by saying Jamaica is a great place to live if it was not the rich Jamaicans would have left and the Spanish would not beoming in droves.
