                          CERTIFICATION OF CITIZENSHIP
              PERSONS BORN OUTSIDE OF JAMAICA OF JAMAICAN PARENTAGE

On the basis of the amendment to the Jamaican Nationality Act, an application for Certification as a
Citizen of Jamaica can be made by persons born outside of Jamaica to Jamaican parents.

The procedure is as follows:

▪       Standard form (attached) to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of National Security,
        Immigration, Citizenship and Passport Division, 25 Constant Spring Road, Kingston 10,
        Jamaica, sent through the High Commission, and supported by the following
        Documents:

1.      If born in wedlock to a Jamaican father:
        a)       applicant’s full birth certificate (showing parents’ names)
        b)       father’s birth certificate and Jamaican passport
        c)       parents’ marriage certificate.

2.      If born out of wedlock to a Jamaican mother:
        a)      applicant’s full birth certificate
        b)      mother’s birth certificate and Jamaican passport

3.      If one parent is Jamaican, but applicant falls outside (1) and (2) above:
        a)      applicant’s full birth certificate (and passport, if applicable)
        b)      Jamaican parent’s birth certificate and Jamaican passport
        c)      parents’ marriage certificate (if applicable).

4.      ALL APPLICATIONS SHOULD BE ACCOMPANIED BY TWO PASSPORT-SIZED
        PHOTOGRAPHS (CERTIFIED BY A PHYSICIAN OR A NOTARY PUBLIC) AND
        POLICE REPORT (CHARACTER REFERENCE) FOR APPLICANTS OVER 16 YEARS
        OLD. APPLICANTS SHOULD ATTEND IN PERSON.

        On the basis of the documents submitted, the Ministry of National Security would issue a
        Letter of Certification of Citizenship.

         An application for a first time or renewal of a Jamaican Passport can be submitted at the
same time with the application for certification. In such a case four (4) photographs are necessary –
two for passports and two for Certification of Citizenship.

        PLEASE ALLOW UP TO ONE YEAR FOR THE PROCESSING OF APPLICATIONS.
