Well, our dossier is on its merry way to China as we speak!!! We just got word from Holt that our dossier was included in this afternoon’s shipment from Eugene, Oregon to Beijing, China. It is expected to arrive on Monday – man we wish we could say the same thing about ourselves!
It took a little longer than expected for our documents to make their way through the U.S. Department of State and the Consulates/Embassy. We were definitely on the longer end of the quoted turn time from each of these entities. What finally came back to us though was a thing of beauty. It was our finalized, certified, authenticated originals with their golden sticker bling one-upped by fancy “China Authentication” seals. We don’t actually know what the seals say as they are written in Mandarin, but we’ll take the shiny emblem to mean our documents were properly prepared and maintained in a manner acceptable to China.
