One step closer!

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.


  1. Great to "meet" you on the travel call yesterday! Excited for the rest of your journey!!


  2. This is Tabby, my other half was Rob on the call. We also sent our pdf on the 9th and are waiting right along with you. Our hope is to travel at the same time and take our youngest with us over Spring Break. Will you guys be straying on the island?

  3. Thanks for your comment on RQ about our daughters name. Maybe we will be in China at the same time. Your daughter is beautiful!
