Q: American embassy in Beijing - the line to heaven?

I had to renew my passport the other day in Beijing, and I arrived there early (Thursday morning) and found an unbelievably long long that snaked from the metal lattice gate, through the inside courtyard, passed the security check, all the way into the halls of the embassy's ground floor. There were perhaps 15-20 booths in there and hundreds of Chinese.

Of course, I just had to show my passport to walk past them all, but damn, made me feel happy to be American. Another American passed me and pointed to the Chinese, saying most people were here but had already been rejected 4 or 5 times.

Got me wondering, what's the statistics on this? How often does the States grant visas to Chinese here? Is it a fool's errand?

Considering how great the likes of wenna7 say it is here, if you go to any western embassy it's like that, goes to show if possible most would choose to leave here!! Laughing out loud I've heard many say "I'm never going to leave China, I love China, the next thing you know they latched onto a foreigner and moved or applied to immigrate... Liars... Wink I believe they say that to save face in case they get turned down by immigration or in wenna7's case find it impossible to sink their claws into a western man... Laughing out loud

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
