I just got an email from Rebecca -- she was able to work her magic and get our trip moved up a week. So now we can use our I-171H that is good through May 17th!!!! She also requested a new CA for us. However, the Consulate is closed until Tuesday for the Chinese Holiday -- 'Tomb Sweeping Day'. Everything is closed in China Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
So thank you Rebecca -- I never doubted that you'd be able to get us there in time to use our 'old' paperwork.
I'm hoping Rebecca hears something back from the Consulate on Tuesday and then we can book our flights!!
At this point and time -- the estimated travel dates -- subject to change -- are: April 30th through May 14th.
