My L1 A Individual Visa extension has denied by USCIS. Don't know the reason yet. How soon can I file for a fresh visa again. Please guide if someone has experience. Thanks.

My husband and I had our visa interview on 16th September,2019 at 9:30 am in US Consulate, Chennai. My husband visa (L1B) was issued whereas I was given a blue slip with Administrative process option ticked. We are newly married couple. We were asked about the marriage certificate and both our passports were kept. His status is showing issued but mine is still coming administrative process and was updated on 17th September. Anyone with same issue kindly revert back!!!

Hi All,

My L1B Individual petition was approved on 9th August 2019 under premium processing. I have booked the appointment but my attorney has yet not received the approved petition letter from USCIS. Its more than a month now.
Is someone else in the same boat? Is there a way to find out where the document is, any helpline or email alias to get update on the status of document?

L1B RFE response is received by USCIS. In addition to that, my husband’s employer started premium processing and it’s more than 15 calendar days (almost 45 days) now. Also the overall 240 days after extension filing is also going to get over very soon.

Employer raised the case enquiry and no response came yet from USCIS

Anyone faced this situation or what can be do for next steps.

thanks ImmIhelp to provide so much of content to be able to prepare for the interview.

While i was scheduling interview location I had both options Monterrey and Mexico-City. I chose for mexico city as both bio-metric and interview locations are very close (Walk-in distance) in here. the benefit of this is, you can survive going to these locations without mobile (this is the rule because of security reasons) because you don't need to book any cab so no need of mobile or money.

below is my experience:
Bio metric 9/10/2019 (7:30 AM) - attended Bio metric in Mexico city. reached at center 15 min before the scheduled time 7:30 AM. it took 15 mins, i was out by 7:45 AM.it was so quick.

TIPS - do not carry mobile or purse, no electronic device, not even Fitbit or any other electronic watch.

Interview 9/11/2019 (10:00 AM)- reached 15 mins before. they asked me to stand in a separate line standing only L1-B/A guys. i was totally blank as i was thinking only all negative scenarios like canceling my L1B too causing no entry in USA again. i was thinking how i will handle this and that :). now my turn,

me:- good morning mam.
VO:- no answer. just smiled. or she was not interested to reply. may be she does'nt like "BUTTERING".

I went into silent mode.

VO:- your application is 1st time visa or renewal?

me:- its renewal?

VO continuously typing.

VO:- I am giving all your documents (which are not of my use) back to you. Give both copies of fraud fees (500$) to me.

She gave me all unneeded documents back to me like my employer's financial data, supporting document etc. and only kept I129S(2 copies) and passport. and guess what.......

VO wrote "APPROVED" on my 129S. what...that is it? She did not even ask a single question and approved my petition. it was so quick as jet speed. I was like it's done.

I was looking at VO like i look at my mother....so kind ....so understandable.

After approved all 3 copies of 129S. She asked me couple of questions,

VO: - what is your role?
me :- I am Project Manager.

VO: - what do you do as a Project Manager.
me :- I answered very comfortably as i knew she already approved my petition.

I was out by 11:30AM. it took one and half hour because of a long queue before me.

TIP:- you can ask VO to return you passport early as you need to fly back on the given date. 95% they agree with you and give a pink slip with date and time mentioned to pick you passport from the interview location itself.

Hello All,

My case is blanked L1 A application.
Can anyone guide me as to when is the 9-11 Response and Biometric Entry-Exit Fee of $4,500 required to be paid? I work with a German MNC and am being transferred to USA.
Even in USA that total workforce for my company exceeds 20K and I dont think that more than 10% of these would be H1/L1 visa based employees.

Has anyone been asked to produce a Demand draft for this amount before?
My VISA interview is on Thursday 19th Sep
