Welcome to the Jamaican Consulates website in Chicago. I am Lloyd L. Hyde, Consul at Chicago and adjoining areas. Our aim is to provide the highest quality of service to all.

From time to time we will update this site in an effort to provide our over 60,000 Jamaican nationals and other residents with the best information available. We hope you find the information to the various links useful to your business or individual needs. This is our way of extending you unmatched service. We consider it a distinct privilege to serve you.


Please join us in our drive to reach out and help the less fortunate among us needing children’s homes and places of safety in Jamaica. Together our efforts will make a difference.

We continue to enjoy the support of the area churches, community leaders, businesses, professionals and others. “We have only just begun.” We encourage you and your friends to join us.
