Just received an email from Jiayang and her interview is over and her visa has been approved. As soon as I talk with her I will post a review of the consulate in Guangzhou.

Congratulations Biff!!

Thanks for writing your review!!

I read your review and found this interesting: She then told her she was approved and gave her the pink paper and told her to come back on Tuesday of next week to get her passport back with the new visa inside.

I thought everyone gets their visa+passport at a post office near the consulate. Please keep us posted if this is something new at Guangzhou :)

Once again, thank you for the review and congratulations on your visa approval!! :)
