Chinese Jamaicans are Jamaican people of Chinese ancestry, which include descendants of migrants from China to Jamaica.

Early migrants came in the 19th century; there was another wave of migration in the 1980s and 1990s.

Many of the descendants of early migrants have moved abroad, primarily to Canada and the United States.[3] Most Chinese Jamaicans are Hakka and can trace their origin to the coolies and labourers who came to Jamaica in the mid-19th to early 20th centuries.
