I live in the USA and hope to travel to Spain in ~6 weeks.
My citizenship requires a Schengen visa for traveling to Spain.
Applying for the Schengen visa requires making an appointment and appearing in person at the Spanish consulate in New York.
The wait time for an appointment is currently 10 weeks.
Unless I can secure an earlier appointment, I cannot obtain my visa in time to travel.
I have contacted two visa expediting services; they were unable to assist.
Can anyone offer advice on how to obtain an earlier appointment?
Or any other advice on how to proceed?
