Jamaica Single Window for Trade

JSWIFT is a one-stop-shop electronic system that allows traders  to submit  information at a single point to fulfill all import and export regulatory requirements.

It is a web-based solution available to the trader through a designated portal. JSWIFT will allow importers and exporters to apply for Licences, Permits, Certificates
and any Other international trade related documents (LPCO) through a single portal. This system serves as a means of improving connectivity thereby facilitating the exchange of information between traders, customs offices and other border regulatory agencies (BRAs).


  • Single access point through a designated online portal
  • Single access point for LPCO application
  • Single submission of data with validation functionalities
  • Synchronized data processing functionalities
  • Single point for accommodating decisions related to Cross Border Trade
  • Single payment


           The implementation of the Jamaica Single Window for Trade will result in:

  • Faster processing of LPCO applications
  • Decreased costs due to the reduction of delays
  • Increased transparency
  • Reduced costs of compliance
  • Reduced documentation due to single submission of data
  • Real-time availability of information
  • Much greater predictability
Any individual or company importing or exporting goods can apply for a LPCO using JSWIFT.
