  1. US citizenship is determined by the citizenship laws of the United States, as you are aware. Under the Chinese Nationality Law, the child IS a Chinese citizen, unless you have taken up residence (held a green card at the timr of birth) in the US. IF the child is a Chinese citizen, the US citizenship will not be recognized in China until and unless the Chinese citizenship is renounced.
  2. They are NOT interested in your tax situation - only in your income which was reported on your tax returns. If you filled out tax returns with $0 income, the IRS may not have kept any records of that, or might not even have accepted the return. File your own copies of the returns (or our evidence of your financial situation) with the Affidavit of Support. It is YOUR responsibility to prove to the Immigrations Officer that the intending immigrant will not become a burden on society.
  3. ?? She can return to her home in Beijing with the passport, and mail it from there. Arrangements to do so can be made at the interview. This is a not uncommon procedure for non-Chinese nationals. Chinese citizens can travel with their Chinese ID, but foreign nationals need a passport.
  4. She can return home and mail the passport from there. Have her make arrangements at the interview.
  5. My guess is that the "public security bureau (PSB) in her parents' neighborhood" is where her parents' hukou is registered and that you could have gotten the white book there. Being bounced back and forth is no fun, but I'm glad they came through for you.
  6. I'm not sure which IPB version you're on, but I installed an update  Version 4.6.4 for CFL (an IPB update just released yesterday)

    It broke ALL text boxes (essentially disabling the forum) - fortunately, I found a suddenly released "patch for 2 factor authentication", which apparently also fixed the text box problem.

    Just a warning in case you update VJ.

  7. If she is not going to the office where HER hukou is registered, have her go there. My understanding is that a Chinese citizen with a hukou and a Chinese ID SHOULD be able to get a notarial birth certificate. An alternative, if it is a different office, would be to go to the office where her parents' hukou is registered.
  8. You can also try directly contacting the Notarial Office, or Gong Zheng Chu (公证处) where her (or her parents') hukou is registered. They will tell you what is needed in order to obtain a notarial birth certificate 出生公证书, or chu sheng gong zheng shu. You can often obtain contact information through Google, using the search term "< jurisdiction name > 公证处"
  9. Somebody mentioned Hyder, Alaska - here's what Google has to say.
  10. She will need a Notarial Certificate of Birth. The notation on the notarial certificate of birth is 出生公证书, or chu sheng gong zheng shu, which is what you need to ask for at the Gong Zheng Chu, or 公证处֤֤֤. The Notarial Certificate of Birth is generally issued from information in the hukou, which you seem to be saying has the correct name.
  11. Yes - bottom line here is - YOU NEED TO HAVE THE CORRECT DOCUMENT. A random "公证书, not 公证处" is NOT the correct document. 公证书 simply means notarial certificate. Like I've said, they can produce 公证书, or notarial certificates for ANY purpose. The 出生公证书 is an official Chinese document to be used as a birth certificate for presenting to foreign entities. The Chinese workers at the consulate are trained to recognize this and will reject what you have at document intake. YOU NEED A 出生公证书. Correction - I see that she is actually interviewing in Montreal. You may or may not get by with what you have, depending on how familiar they are with Chinese documentation.. Good luck.

  13. You need the notarial birth certificate - 出生公证书, or chu sheng gong zheng shu - this is what it should say on page 2 (the first page inside the booklet). I can't tell for sure what you have, but 公证处 Gong Zheng Chu simply says "Notarial Office". They issue white books for many purposes - yours should say 出生公证书.
  14. Once someone or some thing is "Banned", it is done in 2 ways - by IP address and/or by email address. Since your email probably wouldn't be banned, try changing your IP address - e.g., through a VPN, or possibly by simply re-connecting to your Internet provider. IP addresses are constantly changing, so someone else may have been previously banned while using that IP address.
  15. That would appear to be old news - mine was issued in 2014. EDIT: Unless I got that backwards, and the (purple) one on the left is the new one - but mine seems to include the "Polycarbonate biographical page and Hardcover booklet".
