NVC Approval Letter In!

Well we reached another milestone:  we received an e-mail from the US National Visa Center (NVC) that had a pdf file of our approval letter, this means we can now forward our DS-230 Visa Application to the US Consulate in Guangzhou.  Once the application is submitted (only done on Tuesdays and Thursdays) they will have a letter ready in 2-weeks (called an Article 5) that then goes to Beijing so we can get our Travel Approval (TA).

We received a very plain letter - not very pretty compared to other approval letters we have received from China or other US Agencies - but hey it's an approval!


  1. Great news! Once you have your TA is that when you actually get to book your travel??

  2. Yes it is. At the rate things are moving it's looking more like we'll go before Christmas, which is what Cameron's been saying all along : )

  3. Woohoo! Maybe Cameron tuned into the Holy Spirit's travel plans earlier than anyone else! :)
