British High Commissioner to Jamaica
We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Jamaica. The British High Commission in Kingston provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Jamaica.
We look after the interests of British nationals in Jamaica and the Bahamas, work to reduce drug trafficking, and we support British companies seeking to do business in the region. Additionally we aim to secure the support of the region in achieving British foreign policy objectives. The Department for International Development has an office in Jamaica which focuses on wealth creation, improving disaster resilience, and tackling crime and corruption.
If you’re in Jamaica and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call +1 876 936 0700. If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in Jamaica, call 020 7008 1500.
