Hi,

Thank you all. Sounds like the K-1 has finally been approved. My SO forwarded me a scan of a document she recieved from the Consulate with a box checked approved. They are asking her to go back to Guanzhou with her passport, or a family member or designate. Also said three days possible wait time for the visa package.

Monday or Wednesday from 1:30-3:00 in the afternoon. No appointment necesssary.

Until I hold her in my arms I'll be cautious. Sounds like it's on and she needs to start planning her trip here. I'll meet her in Chicago, When she gets here. She wants to fly from Beijing, so maybe a little more time to wait.

Thank you all again,

Actually for flights I would recommend having her check Asiana Airlines from her end. If she buys a one way ticket from China the price will be much cheaper. Americans pay higher prices, because we can, but withing China the price is lower (in most cases). Case in point, my friend recently paid about $595 for a one-way from Shanghai to Chicago (with a stop in Korea). Just food for thought.

When my wife came from China we used elong.com (Chinese site) for her ticket and it was cheaper than flychina or vayama.

Congrats !

cool - sounds like she received a 'call in letter' - she'll show that to the security goons, they'll let her in to the IV unit, drop off the passport.

Before she goes, make sure she knows the holiday schedule for GUZ IV - it's CNY time, currently.

Thank you all for your well wishes.

She's planning on going back to Guangzhou next week (too many people traveling after CNY). She has a friend who is a travel agent that usually arranges her travel for her, but I'll let her know about elong.com. I know she was planning on Asiana Airlines, probably end of March beginning of April.

Thank you all again,

Eric

Garfield,

Thanks, she is planning on flying Asiana and %575.00 sounds about right to what she told me (I think it was around 4300 rmb), She can fly from Chang Chun to Seoul then to Chicago. She also checked the advice about elong.com, but it was more.

I'd like to take you up on the offer of your wife chatting with her when she gets here. I think she may be starved for some Chinese conversation. I think she's a little apprehensive about the "unkown" new life here, and I don't blame her. That is a huge change to move from one country and culture to another you don't know too much about, and the language is different than you are use to expressing yourself with.

Thank you,

Eric
