Is the Jamaican embassy open New Years Eve, the 31st of December, I am sure they are closed for Jan 1st, New Year's Day. Their website is not current. and i don't trust dhl in jamaica because they answered their phone christmas eve and told me the embassy was open. Then the embassy facebooked me and emailed me saying they wern't open. Life's Journey was right the embassy was not open Christmas Eve. You would think dhl in jamaica would know but i guess not. These weekend and Holiday hours suck. I got a very nice email from the embassy yesterday morning apoligizing for being unable to get my kids to me by christmas. It made me feel really good to think that there was a moderate amount of compassion on the other side at the embassy. Towards the end of this stressful process they have been very prompt in answering my emails and very patient and sympathetic. My kids turned in their passports and paid dhl Tuesday, dec 17th, dhl status just keeps saying "shipment shipped". I am waiting for it to say "shipment delivered". Then will send my lil family to the warehouse to pick up the visa. I have also found the embassy's facebook page very helpful. They even answered one of my questions off business hours from a mobile phone on their facebook.
