  • L1B Expedited Appointment in India

    I have received my I-797 L-1B (individual) approval notice which is valid until April '23. According to my attorney, I might be eligible to book an Expedited Appointment under technical expert exception. If the appointment gets approved and then the VO at the consulate rejects it, would it impact my visa approval or regular appointment in any way?
    And, Would you recommend going this route or just wait for the regular appointment?

    Rejection of expedited appointment won't impact the decision of visa interview.

      Hi,

      Has this been suggested by your immigration team / attorney? Could you let me know the documents they've planned to prepare. I'm in the same situation, received approval in Mar'20 valid until May'23 and hard copies received in May due to lockdown.

      Joining has been shifted forward twice already and need to fly asap. Let me know once you hear back from your attorney.

        Hi Manoj, Yes- my attorneys suggested EA and I'm still waiting for a slot to open (looking at Chennai consulate). They have shared a letter that outlines my expertise and why I qualify for EA. Very similar to the L1 petition. So, I'd suggest- Fill the DS 160, book an appointment, fill the form for EA and get the stamping if it gets approved. This is the best course of action right now.

          Thank you! But, how about rejection post the EA interview? Would this also not impact?
