Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What is the normal length of a time frame for someone in the States passport of Jamaica
Expert:  Debra replied 1 year ago.

I am so sorry to hear that. I don't think this will help unfortunately.

The h2b visa has nothing to do with Canada.

He will not need a physical.

It will likely take about a month to get.

He should contact the closest Canada visa office to where he is and see what they say about how to do this as efficiently as possible.
