World Cup in WI - II

I am telling you, its all because of me. Its all because, I wanted to go there and watch a world cup match.

Applicants who require visas must either reach their nearest office or mail their passports along with $100 and join a long waiting list.

"This is the worst public-relations nightmare that the Caribbean has ever created for itself," said Josef Forstmayr, managing director of Round Hill Hotel and Villas in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

George Goodwin, chief executive officer of the local organizing committee in Antigua and Barbudam, added: "Ticket sales are not going as robust as people had originally hoped."

I dont think you need visa to go to Jamaica...its part of the common wealth of nations and India, being a common wealth country, Indian citizens dont need a visa.

I travelled to Montego bay in 2004 with just a US H1B visa.
