Tiger Lilly/Rastagirl777/Nikki...I assume this is you as you've brought up the same wrong info on several occasions in the past...please stop.
"In my experience fingerprinting is/was necessary." Nikki...again...you've never had a work permit...you're only here a couple a months a year as a tourist...this isn't helping anyone.
When you first apply for a work permit in Jamaica you will need to get a police record from your home country/town...it does not make any sense to apply for a police record in a country you have yet to live! The legal requirements have NOT changed.
The only LEGAL place to get a police record after you've been living here & then have to RENEW your work permit is Montego Bay or Kingston. But, this is not something you have to worry about yet, Copper350.
I don't mean to come off too harsh...but I will be blunt when wrong information keeps getting posted. I hope this helps!!
