Visa applications are taken on a first come, first serve basis between 8:30 to 11:30 am Monday through Friday – note that’s a shorter window than their general public office hours. Get there early, preferably before they open, particularly if you’ve got three or more people on your application. Be sure to check their holiday calendar?before you go.
My research turned up no serious concerns about the application process in Miami except for their stated resolution time of 3 to 6 months. Say what?!? That’s a long time to wait, especially when you can’t apply more than 90 days before your desired departure date and wouldn’t want to buy airline tickets until you knew you had your visa. If that’s an accurate estimate, you could run into a serious crunch if you’re trying to time your arrival with the start of the school year. Think through your timeline carefully.
Worked with the Miami consulate??Contact me?to help share your information with others. Information on their resolution time frame especially appreciated.
