I have been up to my eyeballs in paperwork. But it’s the kind of paperwork that you can’t just sit down and crank it out. No, it’s the type you need to get a signature, or notarized, or a specific original copy of something that you need to dig for……It’s that kind of paperwork.
I finally got my I-800a forms done and all the other required information copied that needs to go along with it, and lets not forget the money order. My passport finally came in the mail…phew! So now I can start on my visa applications for China, one for each person in the family…. They look like tons of fun. Thank goodness they are at least in English.
Since I have the workbook open, I thought I would share one of the list that was included. I find some of the items outdated and I can use my IPhone and knock off a couple things from the list.
Cameras, film, batteries, chargers
Lead-lined film bag
Portable alarm clock
Hand-held tape recorder
Sturdy walking shoes
Slippers or flip flops
1 day pack, 1 diaper bag
Saline nasal spray, eye drops
Small first aid kit
Imodium, cold medicine, pepto bismol, Tylenol
Gifts for care givers
This is the first list in the workbook. They have a list of all the documents that you need, all the baby things, a list of all the money you need to pay while there, a list of vaccinations you must have, and luggage requirements.
Although this list looks extensive, I feel it’s lacking some important information. For example…do I bother bringing my own shampoo and soap or does the hotel provide? What about toilet paper? I have heard that they don’t provide any. What do they really mean by comfort food?
I think this requires a call to the agency for some clarification.
I would love any hints or advice if you have any. Just post them in the comment section. Thanks!
