Hey Guys, I could a lot of happy people in here, I know it been a while since I came here... Anyways, I just updated my journey and I wanted to know will it be possible to call the consulate and ask them to change the interview date to closer date cause I'm about to go back to the States the 20th (I'm in Haiti with my fiancee now) and her interview date is setup for the 29th of August but she has an school exam to take the 23rd in the State so I was wondering if I tell them all that or is there other excuses you guys could help me with so I could change the date to closer time please let me know...

Thanks a lot y'all...

Most consulates will change an interview date for one that is later not closer, the closer ones are all booked, you may get lucky and get a slot that someone else abandoned for a later date.

OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.



Look here: A Candle for Love and China Family Visa Forums for Chinese/American relationship,

Visa issues, and lots of info about the Guangzhou and Hong Kong consulate.

You can always email/call the consulate and see whether they can slot you in a cancellation spot. I don't think they'll give you an earlier interview otherwise - most likely they'll be booked up.

Never hurts to contact them to ask - they won't give you a later date as a penalty or anything - worst they can say is "no."

Explain the circumstances as you have here and see what they say.
