I have all of my paperwork needed to apply for my visa (including my PU letter). However, it's been weeks since I've heard back from the embassy to apply for my visa. I emailed and attached all of my necessary paperwork, and still radio silence. There's no other way to get a hold of the embassy. Please advise as I need to return back right away to secure my job.
Thank you very much for your response.
I have my working permit.
Stuck in the US during the pandemic.
I get my special invention (special enter letter from Chinese government) from my working company in Hangzhou yesterday.
