Probation said yes provided Consulate General of Jamaica says ok. Is there any reason Jamaica would say no? On ARD for dui
You really need to call the Jamaican embassay or consulate and ask that question. Since you are in ARD you have not been convicted and that fact will likely be important to the jamacian government but the smart thing to do is get on the phone with the consulate or search their website.
The advice given by both answering attorneys is well placed. I don't know why the Jamaican government wold care since you have not be convicted of a crime at this point. However, in an abundance of caution, (and it seems that this is important to the probation dept.) call the Jamaican Consulate and inquire.
Canada might say "no." Don't know about Jamaica.
The quickest way to get an answer is to inquire at the Consulate.
If you are required to register, you need to do it now.
The statute gives two days to register a change of address.
