We received our NVC .pdf which was then sent to the agency's contact to take to the U.S. Embassy in Guangzhou to process our Article 5. Again, no mail is allowed and it has to be dropped off on Tuesday - Friday, never a Monday. This is supposed to take exactly two weeks but throw Chinese New Year in there and we'll be waiting three (another delay, surprise!). After that we'll wait for Travel Approval (TA) and a Consulate Appointment (CA), then call that travel agent! Confused? Me too and I'm living it. We hope to travel sometime in March and take advantage of the kids' spring break so they'll only miss two weeks instead of three.
