Due to changes in COVID-19 caseloads in Jamaica, the Consular Section at the U.S. Embassy in Kingston will reduce consular services effective September 8. Emergency American Citizen Services and limited visa services will continue.
U.S. Embassy Kingston has no higher priority than the safety and security of U.S. citizens who visit or reside in Jamaica. U.S. citizens who require emergency assistance should contact the Embassy at (876) 702-6000 or at KingstonACS@state.gov. If you need an emergency passport for urgent travel, please e-mail KingstonACS@state.gov with a copy of your travel itinerary and a request for an appointment.
If you have an immigrant visa appointment, the Consular Section will contact you when we resume routine service to reschedule your appointment. If you have a nonimmigrant visa appointment, continue to monitor the appointment website for appointment availability.
