I would hold off making any travel plans until he has the visa in hand. It can take anywhere from 5 days to 3+ weeks. We picked up ours in Kingston. That choice is all yours. Unless you can afford to change the ticket dates....dont buy the ticket until he has it in his hot hands!!!

Morning, I am going to JA next week . . . our interview date is 1/15 . . .I am hoping that we will have his visa by 1/24 when I am scheduled to return . . In the package of documents I sent to him I included a copy of my flight information with a note indicating that I am coming to get him. Also, I have been told by someone who just went through the process that once he is approved to email the embassy a week later and they will send it out that day. Also, we are picking ours up at DHL in Ochie Rios . . .

Good Luck . .

Be prepared to wait about 2 weeks to get the visa after the interview if everything go alright. You can only pick up the visa at the DHL located in New Kingston or Mobay, thats the only pick up option. You just have to see what works best for you. The embassy wont be able tot tell you when its gonna be ready. DO NOT MAKE TRAVEL PLANS BEFORE THE VISA IS IN HAND. THEY MAKE ERRORS SOMETIMES AND U HAVE TO RETURN IT TO GET IT SORTED OUT
