Update on Visa Status
FINALLY!!! Closing in on the visa finish line! Got the last doc I need authenticated by the Ch. Embassy. The post office is gonna get to refund me like $50 because their "guarantees" are not really that! Mofos!
BUT... I'll call the visa agent Monday to ensure the docs are acceptable, then overnight them to her. It will take up to 10 biz days to get them back. From there the (veryfrustratingandunreliable) HR Dept will send the scans to the visa bureau in Shanghai for my work permit and PU letter (permission letter that allows me in although borders are closed due pandemic). It could take 2 weeks or 2 months to get those.
Once emailed to me, I can officially apply for the work visa and then start figuring out how the hell to get out of the US and into China, which is a whole other set of regulations and requirements regarding COVID-19 testing flights. But it feels good to be in the home stretch and a helluva lot less stressful!!! I actually might make it into China in August!!! Then I can look forward to 3 weeks of quarantine and hopefully skating into the first day of school on Sept. 1!!!!! YAY!!!!!!! Light at the end of this sodamnedstressful tunnel!
