We received our 1-800 approval on 12/13/2011, and our file was cabled to the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou on 12/22/2011. Now we are waiting for our agency to drop off our DS 230, then two weeks later our Article 5 should be issued by the Consulate. Then we officially start our wait for Travel Approval! As soon as we receive our travel approval, our agency will make all the necessary appointments for us, and we can buy our plane tickets! We are still hoping to travel in late February or early March.
I-800A approval 9/19/11
