The one-day camp of the Pakistani LA Consulate worked from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. When this correspondent reached the camp at 9:50 am, the Consulate was in operation and over 50 people were waiting in the hall the camp was organized in. The first person served by the Consulate claimed to have reached the venue at four in the morning. By late afternoon, over fifty people were served and almost the same number waited in line. The Consulate operated relatively smoothly, with a few shortcomings—people were not given receipts for the applications and documents they submitted. Applicants served by the camp saved their time and money making trips to Los Angeles.
