(CMR) The Jamaican Consulate has issued an advisory informing it's citizens that at this time there are no flights that have been arranged for the repatriation of Jamaican nationals to return home. However, the Cayman Islands government is collecting information on the number of persons who wish to leave and all interested parties should make contact immediately with the emergency travel hotline.
Jamaicans in Cayman are encouraged to contact (345)244-3333 or email to make their wishes be known and have their details placed on a list. The list is being used to determine the demand for any possible outbound flights.
Callers should be prepared to provide the following information:
- Full name as it appears on passport
- Date of birth including day/month/year
- Passport country of issuance
- Passport number
- Local address
- Email address
- Contact phone number
- Reasons for which to leave
The Jamaican consulate remains closed in adherence to the government's shelter in place requirements. However, an emergency contact number has been set up at (345)547-4826 or via email.
At present, the Jamaican airport remains closed. However, local officials have indicated it might be possible to arrange flights for destinations that Cayman Airways flys directly to provide their borders can be temporarily opened. Last week, Prime Minister Andrew Holness said his government was contemplating how it could assist some stranded persons with repatriating back home.
