REF: DEPT OF TREASURY 051324Z JUN 06



1. Post grants country clearance to Treasury Office of
Technical Assistance Financial Enforcement Advisors David
Chainer, Karl Oroz, Ronald Cleaver and John Anderson for
travel to Jamaica June 12, 2006 through June 30, 2006.
Post understands the travelers are to present OTA's
Financial Investigations Training Seminar to REDTRAC.



2. The Control Officer for this visit will be Economic
Officer John Morgan, telephone number (876) 935-6028; Fax
no. (876) 935-6029.



3. Post confirms that no additional assistance is
required.



4. Visitors traveling to Jamaica for periods less than
two weeks do not require a visa.



5. There has been no specific threat directed against
official American visitors or American tourists who visit
Jamaica. However, Jamaica has been designated a high
threat country because of street crime. It is
recommended that caution be exercised while traveling in
Kingston. Walking after dark is not advised. Care
should be taken if driving at night. Overall, the same
level of awareness should be exercised as in a similar
sized city in the United States.



6. Travelers' checks can be exchanged for Jamaican
dollars at a local bank located near the Embassy. ATM
machines are also available.
