Dear China Family:
Your travel approvals have arrived and we have begun working on your travel schedule. Today the Consulate confirmed your visa appointment but we are still waiting for our staff to send the confirmed travel dates. We expect to have dates tomorrow or Thursday and will send them by email immediately when we do.
The tentative dates we offer here are based on the visa appointments so the US return is accurate but the China arrival day is uncertain. Using this information, you can consider your travel plans or book tickets but we emphasize that these dates may change: if you buy tickets before we confirm them you may need to pay a penalty to change them.
Based on your visa appointment, we expect your travel dates to be:
Beijing arrival: 18 or 19 March.
U.S. return: 1 April
