US Embassy working on plan for phasedreopening
The Consular Section is open but is currently only processing emergency and mission-critical
cases, with limited staffing.
Due to issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of State has suspended
routine visa services worldwide. Here in Jamaica, we are doing everything we can to keep our staff and the Jamaican public safe by adhering to guidance on social distancing, use of cloth face coverings, regular hand washing, and cleaning of surfaces.
The Consular Section is currently processing H-2 visa cases that do not require an in-person
interview — this includes H-2A and H-2B visas. We are also taking emergency visa requests for truly urgent and dire cases, such as family emergencies or medical necessities.
