L1B - Blanket. 20th Feb. Vancouver, Canada.
Thank you very much to this forum; it has been really helpful.

I am located in Canada, but it seems that only individuals who have had interviews in India have shared their reviews on this platform, so far.

Yesterday, I had an interview in Vancouver, and I would like to share my experience.

My appointment was scheduled for 8:45 AM, but I arrived at the interview location at 8:15 AM, finding a long queue already formed.

Step 1: The front staff collected my DS-160 confirmation page, photo, and passport. They had a list of candidates names and verified our name.

Step 2: I was directed to the 2nd floor for the security check. The security staff was thorough in their inspection.

Step 3: After passing the security check, on the same floor, a lady verified my presence in Canada by examining my work permit.

Step 4: Next, four supporting staff members, seated beside each other, verified our details in the system and organized our documents based on visa type. They bundled all the documents together using rubber bands.

Step 5: Anti-fraud fee payment. This took place on the 20th floor. My organization provided me with a check, which I handed over to the team. They issued me a confirmation receipt, which was then included in the bundle of documents.

Step 6: Biometric process.

Step 7: Interview. The officer appeared to be quite experienced. Rather than a formal interview, it felt more like a discussion. Here are the questions posed and my responses:

Officer: Are you here on an L1 A visa?
My Answer: No, Sir, I'm here on an L1B visa.

Officer: How long have you been with your current organization in Canada?
My Answer: Sir, it's been close to a year and a half.

Officer: Which location are you traveling to in the United States?
My Answer: I provided the location name as requested.

Officer: What do you mean by "specialization skills"?
My Answer: Specialization skills refer to unique competencies. In the context of my L1B visa, my organization possesses specialized skills that are not readily available in the market. I've been involved in the design and development of these specialized frameworks as a developer.

Officer: What is your total compensation package?
My Answer: I provided the details of the compensation offered by my organization.

Officer: Perfect, your visa has been approved. Enjoy your time in the United States.
My Answer: Thank you sir, Please take care.
