Guyana’s honorary consul to Jamaica since 1996, attorney Indera Persaud says people from around the world are making enquiries about Guyana and people with little or no roots to the country now want Guyanese nationality on account of the oil boom.
“Everybody wants to go to Guyana. Everybody and his friend want to be a Guyanese. Guyana is a thriving country and people want to see where their heritage and inheritance may lie. Everyone whose grandmother or parents were born in Guyana and living overseas, have citizenship by birth,” she told Stabroek Weekend in an interview.”
Since the discovery of oil in 2015, Persaud said, Jamaica’s business and corporate communities including, banking, insurance, logistics, have shown an interest in Guyana and have been visiting.
