The Horrors of doing Packet 3 in Jamaica...

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

At every turn we seem to have a challenge. First with the RFE of how we met. then in AP at the NVC... getting the documents together in Jamaica was a nightmare and finally again at the medical.. the clinic filled out the immunization records wrong for my fiancés son so he couldn't get his shots... now he has to drive out there again 4 hours there to show the correct immunization record 2 days before the interview!! he spent 6 hours at Andrews getting Xrays blood draws shots etc between him and his son.. even he who is normally a very patient and understanding man stand he knows something good has to come from all of this he went through yesterday! when does it end? Is it only Jamaica that has these complicated processes from the passport police cert and non impediment a challenge paying twice for some services paying extra to expedite. Oh I have been on my knees a few times asking God to give me strength and MORE MONEY LOL. in any case I am hoping and praying that in 2 weeks all this will not have been done in vain!! Pray with me VJ family I need it.

You are correct I started in March and well aware of the differences in timeframes between service centers. I have no control over that. and of course I would not prefer to still be waiting on NOA2. I was discussing the point where I AM and what I am dealing with in Jamaica. Just venting and asking for prayers not comparing myself to others. thanks..

We have all been there, and when you are together, you forget the struggle.

I bet:)

Sorry to hear of your experience. I can only imagine how it feels like a compound issue, like what else to obstruct progress.

What hassle did you have with the police certificate? We tried to get one in advance of the interview and the police said they would have to mail it to the Embassy. How did you guys get the police certificate in Jamaica?

Initially my fiancé took his photos to the fingerprint place in Montego bay but did not have his passport and failed to tell them it was for immigration purposes. So he had to go back a second time show his passport and tell them its for immigration purposes plus pay a second fee for expedited service (7days) he will pick it up next week. not sure why they are telling you they will mail it. No common or process that is set there. good luck.

Most recently went to pick up the police certificate and it had his wrong birthdate. SMH the horrors are never ending in Jamaica. it seems that there is quite the incompetence there. No matter what document we applied for there was an error or misinformation given. God help us get through this interview without a hitch>>
