I am MeiWei, an American. But I brought my lady friend, and several other Chinese people (about 50!) to the USA. Including the fumu of my lady friend for one entire year.
First, you need to have your passport all ready to go.
Second, you must get a letter from someone (the best of all would be your husbands parents in the USA) stating that they want you to come and visit them and will be responsible for you while you are there. The letter should be simple, but very strong. Something like you are their new daughter-in-law and they want you to come and meet the family and things like that.
Third, get them to so send the letter to you and also to the counsulate, or if in Beijing, to the Embassy with and urgent priority. E-mail or fax is fine, but FAX has worked best.
Fourth, and this is the really hard part, you have to bring your bank account book and some other documents which prove you will want to return to China when your visit is done.
Fifth, you should then go stand it the darn line! I, as an American, apologize for the rudness of this, and also for the people you will meet at the Embassy, but that is the way to go.
If you are in Beijing please let me know and I can help because I know the American people at the Visa desk and can make it fairly easy.
Good luck and enjoy your visit. Lilliy's parents came just when SARs was starting, and we got their stay expended for a whole year! The US INS, when I called them, said that it was not the policy of the USA to send people back to some dangerous place, gace us two numbers to write in the passports and then sent us a letter attachment. Very nice!
