I800 Approval!

We got our I800 Approval!!  YAY!  One step closer.  For those of you......like me......who all this paperwork completely confuses.....here is a person who understands its' version.

Once you know that your I800 application has been approved, you are ready to move on to the National Visa Center!

  • After approving your file, your officer will mail your approval to the National Visa Center by 2nd Day UPS Air. However, the approval isn't always mailed out the same day it's approved, so applications can take up seven days to arrive at NVC. Upon receiving your approval, the National Visa Center (NVC) will enter your information into their computer system.



  • Within 1-3 business days, the NVC will "cable" (basically emailing/sending electronically) your file to the US Embassy in Guangzhou, China. This is approval of your visa petition.



  • Upon doing this, the NVC will then mail you a letter stating that your petition has been forwarded to the Embassy. Your agency needs this NVC letter in order to proceed with your adoption! Unfortunately, this letter can take up to a few weeks to arrive in the mail. So instead, ask the NVC to email you the letter as a .pdf attachment.


  • So of course I emailed them right away, requesting this pdf attachment.........now we wait again to hear from that.  This is one big HURRY UP.....and wait........HURRY UP.........and wait process!  :(  Can we just HURRY ALREADY!  sigh...
