Waiting time for Los Angeles?

So I called to setup an appointment in Miami and they said it would be one year. So I asked about Los Angeles as I am a resident of California and they said they could get me in in 2 weeks!!!! So I am thinking about flying out to LA for the appointment.

With that said, I also read somewhere on this forum that once someone submitted their documents during their appointment, it took them a year to get their approval letter. Is it taking everyone that long to the the approval letter or is that just Los Angeles?

Thanks for your help

You must've gotten a cancellation. I set up my appointment with the LA Consulate in August and the earliest available date was November. I've heard similar stories since. Lucky you!

I've heard 8 months or even sooner if you've got an important reason, such as a job waiting, etc. I guess you will find out at your appointment exactly how long. Let us know. But even if it is a year, that's not too bad considering what it could be elsewhere.
