I talked to NVC last night (National Visa Center), plus got an email from them this morning. We were cabled yesterday 3/31/10. That basically means they sent/electronically cabled our paperwork to the consulate in Guangzhou China. The consulate is the place where Jax's visa is issued. Whoo hoo. Now all we need is Article 5 and then TA! Down to the last 2 steps. Oh I pray they go quickly! From what I can tell by stalking charts is that the Article 5 takes anywhere from 17-30 days to come. And then TA is usually 2-4 weeks after that.
