I picked my passport next day and I got it for next 3 years. Based on my expirence, They are verifying everything, its not like blindly approving for everyone. My case was clean and so it was approved.


I just want to specify that I am a GIRL, so it helps others.


Jamaica, I didnt like the country that much, and I didnt feel its secured. Seeing at the forums I contacted Ried for pick ups and drop off. If he is free he will come or else he will send his frnds. I felt ried is a bit descent but his frnds are like other cab drivers.
