When I talked to our CIS officer over a week ago she said that she’d already reviewed our home study and as soon as she received our fingerprints she could approve our i800a!! Woohoo! So we had our fingerprints done last week, exactly a week ago.
I’ve always heard that the CIS officer usually receives the cleared prints that same day or the next day. But not in our case. Our CIS officer is still waiting on our fingerprints! We aren’t sure what’s up with that!
Our dossier has to arrive in Ch*na by July 24 so please join me in praying these prints come through quickly! The rest of our documents were mailed to the Ch*nese consulate for certification last week. The i800a approval document will also have to receive some kind of certification and then it can all be on its way!
