What is a NVC letter?? Well below is the letter we received. Basically it states that the US consulate in Guangzhou has been forwarded some of the necassary paperwork to start preparing Charlottes Visa.
The State Department's National Visa Center has recently received your approval Form I-800,
Petition to Classify Orphan as an Immediate Relative. This letter is to inform you
that your petition has been forwarded to the appropriate visa-issuing post where the
adoption interview will take place.
Name of Beneficiary/Child: WU, KE XIACase Number: GUZ2011764078
This case has been forwarded to:
U.S. CONSULATE GENERAL, VISA SCN.
5TH FL. TIAN YU GARDEN (II PHASE)
136-142 LIN HE ZONG ROAD
TIAN HE DISTRICT, GUANZHOU, CHINA
Please forward any inquiries regarding your I-800 to the assigned US Embassy/Consulate General mentioned above.
SO WHAT NOW??
It takes the Consulate 2 weeks to review Charlotte's visa application, make sure it meets the qualifications for an immigrant visa, and then signs off that everything is in order for the adoption to be completed. This is called the Article 5 letter. THEN WE ARE JUST WAITING ON TRAVEL APPROVAL! We are getting SO CLOSE baby girl! :)
Below is a picture of the US Consulate in Guanzhou, China where our paperwork is headed. :)
