L1A Blanket Visa Approved - Chennai
22nd January 2020 --- Biometric

My Biometric was scheduled at 1:OO PM. Me and my spouse arrived at 12:45 PM and we asked to go inside the building directly. The officers there took our DS-160 and passports and arranged them in order. We were then routed to the biometric windows where our finger prints and photographs were taken and that was it for the day.

23rd January 2020 --- Visa Interview

Our Visa Interview was scheduled at 8:30 AM and we reached the consulate at 8:00 AM. We were asked to stand in the respective queue. After few minutes we were allowed to enter the premise and then after arrangement and validation of the documents and verifying the fingers prints, we were asked to wait for our turn for the interview.

No questions were asked to my spouse.

The VO typed something in her computer for a minute or so and then she picked a Green Slip from, stamped the 3 copies of I-129S, handed over 2 copies to me and said that your Visa is approved. It was a very good experience through out the entire Visa process.

Tips (for those who might feel they need some…) --- Be confident with your appearance and in your conversations. For the L1A Blanket, they will not validate whatever you you need to be convincing and confident enough to get your Visa approved.
All the best for your Visa interviews!!!
