L1A Blanket Approved - Bern Switzerland
Hi All,

This forum has been a great support and help for all the visa applicants, and I am no exception, have gone through the past experiences shared by different applicants and here is my turn to give it back and share my experience.

I had attended my L1A (blanket) visa interview on Dec 3rd, 2021 in Bern (Switzerland), and it was approved, though I have applied for visa interview in India back in March 2020 which got cancelled during Covid time and I moved to Switzerland few months back.

I have received earlier appointment for Feb 3rd 2022, and then i logged in on appointment page on 30th Nov and saw that there is a slot open for Dec 3rd. I have rescheduled appointment for Dec 3rd at 8:45 AM.

It was overall great experience in USA Embassy, we reached there at around 8:40 AM , I went along with my family , Its a very small setting with just few windows , first window they checked all my documents and arranged them in right sequence and asked me to pay the fraud fee at another window and come back for finger scan once I completed the fee payment and finger scans, have proceeded o the Window where consular officer asked following questions

1. Asked me to share visa fee receipt, passports and documents
I have handed over all documents to him
2. What is my Job Title ?
I answered with my Job title with confidence
3. Which location are you going to in USA?
I answered the city and state name
4. Are you applying same category of Visa as earlier ?
I said yes as I had L1A visa in past from my previous employer and he looked in system and checked and said oh yes you had lots of L1 visa earlier
5 How many people reporting to you ?
I answered 25, he asked all of those are direct reports to which I clarified no only 6 are direct reports and rest are indirect reports
6. Question about kids - how old are they ?
I answered with age of my kids, to which he mentioned I also have two daughters of similar age

After this he kept entering in system for few minutes and told us everything looks great and I am approving your visa , you shall get it by mid-next week, after this he kept all passport and gave me one copy of i-129 with approval notice and stamp.

This is it guys.. overall experience was very pleasant, everything was completed within 30 minutes, we were out by 9:20 from Embassy.
Now when I am checking the status , it is showing that 'Administrative Processing' and I am assuming that this will change on Monday as I have visited Embassy on Friday and I should be all set after that
