US Embassy not closing
THE US Embassy in Kingston has reiterated that it will not be closing.
The embassy’s announcement Tuesday that it would be closing its US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office in Kingston on March 1 had sparked concerns among some Jamaicans that this meant the entire mission was closing.
However, only the USCIS office, which oversees lawful immigration to the US, will close, the embassy said in a statement.
Routine consular operations, including visa processing for tourists, students, officials, and immigrant applications continue.
