in one business day. I received the approval letter in the mail today. The date on the letter was March 28 --- 1 business day after our fingerprints were taken. This is record time. Our fingerprint date was so far out that it allowed USCIS to catch up on the back log of applications from November. So what's next?

1) Notarize a copy of the approval letter. - Will do tomorrow
2) Send copy to agency. - Will do tomorrow
3) Agency will send copy to Secretary of State and Chinese Consulate for their approval.
4) Send our dossier to China (DTC).

These 4 steps will probably take a month. Hopefully, we'll be DTC by mid-May. Once this occurs, then we will travel in about 5 months. This will put Ben and me in China at the end of October.
