Business Registration Timeline:

The subsequent step involves the actual registration of your business, which may take anywhere between 5 to 30 business days. Once again, it is essential to emphasize that this timeline is solely determined by COJ Jamaica, as they are currently facing challenges with backlogs in their processing.

Furthermore, once your business certificate is ready for pickup, we strive to ensure a swift delivery process. We collaborate with trusted partners such as Knutsford and Zipmail for deliveries, which are scheduled exclusively on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during business days.

You are welcome to submit any one of the following accepted forms of updated identification:

To ensure an efficient process, we insist on the comprehensive submission of both the front and back sides of the ID, as applicable (e.g., for driver's license and voter's ID). This uncompromising approach guarantees the accuracy of our records and underpins our unwavering commitment to fulfilling all essential legal obligations.

It is essential to note that ID documents issued within the last two months are deemed invalid for our verification process. As such, we firmly urge you to renew your ID and resubmit it promptly to avoid any potential declination or delays.

Once your original certificate is obtained, we promptly and securely delete all submitted information from our systems.
