Last Friday we found out that our I800 was approved on July 14th. After our I800 was approved it was forwarded on to the National Visa Center. At the NVC they "cable" or email our approval to the US Consulate in Guangzhou, China. We found out today that we were cabled. So know we wait until they send us a copy of the letter so we can send it on to our agency who forwards it to their in China staff. Once they receive it they drop everything off at the consulate where we wait for two weeks for them to issue our Article 5. Once that is issued we wait for the CCWCA to issue our Travel Approval, which usually occurs in 2-4 weeks. Then we will travel in 1-3 weeks. We are slowly, but surely getting closer to Carsen!!
