What do I need to know before moving to Kingston?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Kingston, they said...

"I'm sure that others have advised this, but I would suggest that you rent a place initially until you've spent a year or two in JA and you're sure that you want to settle there permanently. I really wouldn't put all your eggs in one basket, and I would definitely not commit to moving all your hard earned monies to JA," said a member in Jamaica.

"Before moving to Kingston, expats should be aware of the tropical climate and the potential for hurricanes and other severe weather. It is also important to research the cost of living in Kingston, as well as the availability of housing and other amenities. Expats should also be aware of the local culture and customs, and be prepared to adjust to the local way of life. Additionally, expats should research the local job market and the availability of healthcare and other services.
