Hi Bill Canadian Guy,

Welcome to :)

If you have any question regarding expatriation to Jamaica, please feel free to ask :)


Hi Priscilla,thankyou for wanting to help me with any questions i may have.So far all the info i have gathered it seems like making the move will be a very smooth process which is why so many of my country folk have made the move.If i come across anything i'm unclear about i will be sure to keep you in mind and thanks again.

Good luck, Bill. Actually, I'm not sure there are that many Canadians living in JA; but it's a while since I've visited, so my info is out of date. I live on the island to the west, where Jamaicans comprise the largest expat community. Cayman used to be a dependency of Jamaica, but once Britain decided to let Cayman go its own way, and set it up as an offshore tax-haven, its economy took off. Until 1972 Cayman used the Jamaican pound, which had the same value as the UK pound, then worth $2.40. Right away, pretty much, the value of the J-dollar began falling disastrously, and it's now worth about one cent US. That won't affect you at all, but it's a bit of background information for you. Cheers.
