Jamaicans urged to register when they travel in light of terrorism attacks
Amid acts of terrorism in several countries, Jamaicans are being urged by the Foreign Affairs Ministry to register at Jamaican Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates when they travel.
According to the foreign affairs minister, Senator Kamina Johnson Smith, it is important that Jamaicans who travel or who live in the diaspora register so that the government can more readily provide assistance in emergency situations.
Senator Johnson Smith says information from Jamaica’s overseas missions indicated that no citizen was injured during the recent shooting rampage in Munich, Germany.
She also said the three-member Jamaican delegation that was in Istanbul Turkey during the attempted coup on Friday, July 15, had returned home safely.
Senator Johnson Smith says these most recent incidents of terror and political disruptions are of great concern globally.
