Blanket L1-B Visa during COVID times
Describing my L1- B Visa interview experience in Chennai

The bio metrics appointment goes smooth. Just carry the required documents, they will attach a bar code to your passport, which will be scanned in the embassy.
- No inteview questions will be asked, just your name and date of birth for confirmation.

Interview experience:
- Waited in the queue outside the embassy for a really long time(1 - 1.5Hr). My appointment was at 10, I went in at 11:00
- Only half the booths inside were operating, hence the slow movement of the queue
- Once you enter, you will be guided at every turn, what to do, how to do etc.. (this goes smooth)

First you will be guided to the officer who will collect the - DD in the name of "U.S CONSULATE GENERAL CHENNAI" for L1 Fraud prevention fee of 500$ [paid in Rupees]

Then you move to the interview officer
(After handing over the documents to them -
 1. Three copies of 1-129,
 2. Three copies of L1 petition,
 3. Passport
 4. DS-160 confirmation)

Questions asked:

1. Which company ?
2. How long have you been working in the current team ?
3. Describe your work ?
4. So what changed now, why do you have to go there ? (Be confident when you give this answer)
5. What is your salary in U.S ?
6. How is your team distributed globally ?

(--- after checking some stuff on his PC ---)
