Jamaica Customs heads to Spanish Town for 2nd Community-based Engagement  

Spanish Town will come alive this Thursday, August 17, as the Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA), will host its second community-based engagement: “Customs Meets the Community,” under the theme: ‘Reaching Our Customers Where They Are.’


Jamaica Customs Will Facilitate Extended Opening Hours at Seaport

The Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA) is advising its customers and stakeholders that it will be facilitating the clearance of containers at the Port of Kingston, for as long as the Kingston Freeport Terminal Limited (KFTL) remains opened for business.

This facilitation is in keeping with efforts to clear the back log of containers, which occurred as a result of recent strikes by haulage contractors and operators, who have since resumed duties at the Terminal.


Jamaica Customs Apologises for Clearance Delays

The Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA) wishes to apologise for the delays and inconvenience experienced by our valued customers as a result of the interruptions of service from our internet service provider.

Please be advised that the JCA is working with the internet service provider to rectify the situation.

The JCA wishes to express our sincere appreciation to Kingston Wharves Limited (KWL) and other operators for extending their operation hours until 7:00 p.m. today.
