As per Wikipedia: There was a plan to introduce postal codes in Jamaica, first announced on June 6, 2005. On February 12, 2007 it was announced that the postcode project had been suspended indefinitely. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postal_codes_in_Jamaica

The legacy postcodes are available from a third party service: http://postalcodedb.com/AlphabeticSearch.aspx?country=Jamaica

Site description: Based from the Postcode/Zipcode dataset, the cities are in alphabetical order. In order to find the city, you will have to click the letter. Then it will direct you to a list of cities. When you select the city name, you will find its postcode there. Then clicking the postcode will lead you to a map and while zooming in the map, you will find the city in its parish location.
