As the Government of Jamaica rolls out its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries (MICAF) is doing its part in minimising the potential spread of this disease by way of limiting person-to-person interactions in our day-to-day operations as much as is possible. As such, in keeping with the overall government response and to ensure the safety of all, including you, our valued clients, effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020 the following will be implemented:
PLANTS AND PLANT PRODUCTS
Please fill out application forms for non-commercial and commercial phytosanitary inspection from the safety of your workplace or home. Payments can be made at any of our cashiers. Please scan and send the completed form and payment receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once payment is verified, your certificate (e-phyto or hard copy) will be prepared. The forms are available online at https://www.micaf.gov.jm/document-categories/forms.
ANIMALS, ANIMAL PRODUCTS AND ANIMAL BY-PRODUCTS
Persons intending to travel to Jamaica with their pets must first contact the Permit Office urgently via email (email@example.com) or telephone, for further important instructions.
