Moving Back to Jamaica

A blog about my Move Back to Jamaica after 20+ years of living in the US. Most of the articles focus on the period from 2005-2009 when the transition was new, and at it's most challenging.

Pets and Moving Back

One of the practical questions that seems to be often asked is whether or not pets are allowed to be brought into Jamaica.

Apparently, our research is showing that only cats and dogs from the U.K. are allowed to be brought in, without undergoing a 6 month quarantine. They only need to undergo a 14 day quarantine.

This not good news to those who want to move to Jamaica with pets, from parts of the world outside the U.K. For some, it's a deal breaker, as these rules will prevent them from coming to Jamaica in the short term, as they are unwilling to leave their pets behind.

I spoke to a friend of mine who is a veterinarian here in Jamaica to verify the above facts. Here is a link from Expat Exchange to view a discussion on the topic:

I want to know if your Management course from 29 - 30 April is still on and whether the location has been decided.

I will not be able to attend on the 29 due to prior commitment but would like to chat briefly with you on the 30th at your venue in POS during lunch.

My email is

Thanks in advance
