Worried and waiting for z visa documents

I am getting very concerned about my z visa application. It was submitted to the Foreign Expert Bureau by my employer 2 weeks ago. Not too long, but I have to leave around the 13th of February so it's getting tight, considering the time it will take for them to DHL the documents to me, and for me to apply at the embassy. The school have said they will check it this week but I am currently freaking out a bit.
If there were any problems, would the FEB they have advised by now? I am wondering if my degree is an issue. I used my primary degree (not my highest) as I had to get it authenticated at my local embassy and couldn't do this with my foreign MA.

I hope I'm getting unnecessarily worried about this!


  • It can take between 2 and 4 weeks for the Chineses FEB to process the work inviation paper so you are worrying unneccsesarily.
