  • Living in Jamaica

    Life in Jamaica is often associated with mainly two aspects: constant sunshine and the constant tunes of reggae music. This might be rooted in reality to some extent, but limiting the experience of living in Jamaica to just this would be foolish! Our expat guide gives you deeper insights.

    If you thought working in Jamaica did not expand beyond producing rum and being employed in hotels, you need to think again. After a number of years of economic decline, employment in Jamaica is becoming more and more interesting for expats. Our guide offers a comprehensive overview.

What Can You Expect from Expat Life in Jamaica?

Jamaica is renowned for many things. From its beautiful beaches to its world famous rum, reggae, and rastas, most people across the globe have heard of the island. But it's not all Red Stripe and soaking up the sunshine. Jamaica has an ever-increasing business community that is growing stronger all the time. Over recent years, as well as remaining a favored tourist hotspot, Montego Bay has become a central hub for telecommunications with endless opportunities for commerce. The bauxite industry is a key component of the Jamaican economy as is agricultural processing and, of course, tourism. A vibrant capital city that is constantly evolving, Kingston is more popular with expats than ever. With a thriving arts and culture scene encompassing everything from film and poetry to dance and painting, there really is something for everyone.
