The National Land Agency is pleased to be associated with the Government of Jamaica’s Citizen’s Charter Programme, as we recognize our obligations to our customers and stakeholders to provide high quality service which is responsive to their needs.
Our standards of service are set out in this Charter and reflect a commitment by all of the Agency’s staff to not only improve our service delivery, but to be courteous and helpful. The Agency since its inception has upgraded and implemented systems that have reduced our service delivery times and have made our information more easily accessible to customers.
The Agency’s website provides clients locally and internationally with land-related information via the documents and forms available electronically, as well as the availability of online applications.
The Agency also recognizes that you also have a part to play in advising us of your needs. We will therefore consult with you regularly and make appropriate revisions where necessary to ensure that your needs are met.
Finally, we are committed to achieving the standards set out in this Charter, as well as the mission and vision of the National Land Agency.
