IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Overview

Migration Activities

Like its Caribbean counterparts, Jamaica continues to face migration-related challenges. Given its economic reliance on tourism, the Government of Jamaica remains highly committed to combating trafficking, curtailing smuggling operations (many of which affect third-country nationals) and addressing issues related to the free movement of Caribbean Community (CARICOM) nationals, particularly in terms of employment and health services.

Migration Issues

Trafficking. Many of Jamaica's migration-related challenges are due to the growth of organized crime networks that have set up sophisticated human smuggling and trafficking operations.
