Our article 5 was picked up on July 12th. We should receive our TA (travel approval) in about 2 weeks. Then we need a CA (consulate appointment). The CA is the last thing you do in China before coming home. Usually it is about 1 month from your TA. So, I am hoping to have TA by July 27th and confirmed travel plans by Aug. 1st. I am hoping to be home before the end of Aug. Hoping to be in China around Aug. 10th.
