Oh, hello, Tuan.  I just returned from the Embassy.  It's only by going through the procedures that we know how difficult they are!  I have to go back and forth, back and forth many times already.  I need to add some more details from you.   Please come to the office to follow up/ discuss further.  What day can you come?
I'm at the post office right now.  Let me go back to my office to check my calendar, then I'll know what hour I can meet you.
All right.  So call me afterward.
