Increase in Passport Applications.

The Passport, Immigration and Citizenship Agency (PICA) is reporting that it is seeing an increase in passport applications. 

PICA says the demand has resulted in delays in the delivery of the document. The agency says in the 2022/2023 financial year it received 223,933 applications for passports, which is a jump when compared to pre-pandemic figures. The pre-pandemic applications amounted to 205,115 for the 2019/ 2020 financial year. This represents a 9.2 percent increase or 18,818 more applications.

PICA to Begin Issuing New E-Passports Next Week.

The Passport, Immigration and Citizenship Agency (PICA) has announced it will begin issuing new high-security electronic or E-passports to the public as of March 31. 

An E-passport is an electronic machine-readable passport with an embedded microchip that stores a digital version of the holder's biographical data. The chip has a unique digital signature specific to each issuing country. PICA said the "E-passport is a robust biometric document with added layers of security that can aid in the fight against new and emerging threats to identity theft and national security." It explained that its decision to issue the document is aimed at facilitating greater confidence and acceptance of the Jamaican passport for travel facilitation globally.

US Increases Visa Processing Fees for Caribbean Visitors 

The United States Department of State on Tuesday published a Final Rule regarding increases to certain non-immigrant visa application (NIV) processing fees for Caribbean and other visitors. 

The increases, published Tuesday in the US Federal Register, will become effective on June 17, 2023. The State Department said the fee for visitor visas for business or tourism (B1/B2s and BCCs), and other non-petition-based NIVs, such as student and exchange visitor visas, will increase from US$160 to US$185.

The fee for certain petition-based non-immigrant visas for temporary workers (H, L, O, P, Q, and R categories) will increase from US$190 to US$205, the State Department said, adding that the fee for a treaty trader, treaty investor and treaty applicants in a specialty occupation (E category) will increase from US$205 to US$315.

Public Support for NIDS Pilot Exceeds Quota

The NIDS Project is entering a new phase of testing the national identification card enrolment and issuance processes with the help of 300 Jamaican volunteers. The target quota was exceeded within 24 hours of inviting volunteers to register for participation at www.nidsfacts.com on April 4, 2023.

The Hon. Floyd Green, Minister without portfolio in the Office of the Prime Minister, expressed his appreciation for the public’s enthusiasm and interest in the new national identification card and the post-technical pilot phase, which is the final step before the establishment of the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA) to manage the national identification services.

The Project Executing Unit (PEU) and the PBS Consortium have successfully integrated various systems, such as pre-enrolment, online enrolment, queue management, and identity management. The system is now able to personalize national identification cards with digital certificates as one of the final layers of protection for cardholders. The Office of the Prime Minister is also making arrangements to establish the governance and support structures for the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA) and the National Identification and Registration Inspectorate (NIRI).

Activities Permitted, Prohibited With B Visas.

B visas are a wonderful way to visit the United States (US). Many activities and events are allowed under a B visa, but how can you know if they will align with your specific travel purpose? And with all that flexibility, how can you avoid accidentally misusing B visas? This article will provide a brief overview about what activities are or are not permitted with B visas.

What types of activity are allowed on B visas?

There are two types of B visas that allow for different activities during your visit to the US. First, the B-1 is a temporary business visa. It allows for certain work-related visits including business negotiations, professional conventions, international athletic competitions, academic seminars, etc. Second, the B-2 is for temporary, pleasure-related visits. With a B-2 you can visit friends and family, go vacationing, participate in amateur athletic events, or receive medical treatment. The combined B-1/B-2 is the most common non-immigrant visa, allowing for both business and pleasure visits.

In plain language, what activities are prohibited when traveling on a B visa?

Although the B-1 visa allows for certain business activities, it is illegal to work for wages while in the US. While some exceptions exist, the principal place of business and accrual of profits must be here in Jamaica for B-1 business activities. Volunteering to sell articles or services or accept donations, even for a charity, is considered work and is prohibited when traveling on a B visa. As always, follow the law when in the US. Participating in any illegal activity constitutes a misuse of a visa.

Why Jamaica Remains Excluded From Canada's Partial Visa Waiver.

Johnson Smith explains the basis for the continued position from the North American country.

The refusal of some Jamaicans to speak truthfully on their visa applications and the use of unauthorized travel agents to assist with such applications are among the reasons why Jamaica was not added to Canada's electronic travel authorization (eTA) program for eligible travelers.

The reasons were disclosed by Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Minister, Senator Kamina Johnson Smith, at Thursday's 'Let's Connect' virtual forum with Jamaica's Ambassador to the United States, Audrey Marks. "There is no visa-free travel to Canada. What has been offered by Canada is called an eTA, (which is) an expansion of their eTA program that is their electronic travel approval program," Johnson Smith explained.
