Pending L1A Ext. after getting GC
Hello All,

My L1A & my family I-539 COS pending with USCIS, while its pending i received my GC this month. The question of what would happen to the pending cases? is it necessary to withdraw those applications? Raise query with my Lawfirm, they mentioned my L1A you employer should withdraw and I-539 withdrawn request to be made by my spouse. Not sure all these necessary, worst case if the cases are pending with USCIS what will happen? Can someone who went through this situation reply to my queries.

Thanks in advance.

L1B Approved along with L2
My L1B Visa got approved along with L2 Visa for my wife.
I would like to share my experience for all the people who are appearing for L1B (Blanket) Visa. Best luck for your interview.
Our organization did all the paper work nicely and we took the interview in the month of Feb.

Date of Bio-metrics - 9th Feb 2020
Date of Interview - 10th Feb 2020
Status on Interview Date - Administrative Processing
Request for additional Documents - 21st Feb 2020
Document Submission - 28th Feb 2020
Status on CEAC Website (Till 3rd March) - Administrative Processing
Status on CEAC Website (3rd March 2020) - Refused (I got shocked by seeing this status :( )

Status on CEAC Website (13th May 2020) - Issued :)
Passport Delivery Date - 9th June 2020 - Delayed due to Corona

Bio-metrics Day -

Location - US Bio-metrics Center

You have to visit different location for US Bio-metrics Process. Please reach to this location not before 15 mins.
Important point, please do not carry unnecessary documents and files. If something is really urgent, you can use the locker facility.
You can finish complete process within 15 mins.

Interview Day

As far as my interview day, please reach to Embassy on time and not before time. There would be so many people and everyone will reach 1Hr
before. My suggestion is please reach location not before 15 mins.Be calm. Don't worry about your visa and process. It just small interview process.
Please don't carry mobile phones if possible. You can again use the locker facility but try to avoid distractions.
Once you enter into the premises, the guys will ask you to arrange the documents in the sequence. Please do it and go ahead for the next room.
You will need to submit the Visa Fees (DD) followed by the Bio metrics verification.
After this, you will need to stand in one of the queue and you need to go sequentially to one of the window.

My Interview Experience

Me & my Wife - Good Morning
VO - Please handover your I129S and Passports
He was going through the documents and suddenly first question to my wife (This was really different that how we prepared)
VO - What's your birth place?
My wife - Place Name
VO - When you got married?
My Wife - Exact date (< 11 months)
VO - (Tricky Question) Do you have kids?
My Wife - No
VO - (Immediate question to me) Why do you want to visit US?
Me - Explained my roles and responsibilities and reason for the visit for 2 mins
VO - Are you going to client location?
Me - No (I am visiting to sister company)
VO - Please tell me about your roles and responsibilities
Me - Explained that (Sensor technology and all)
VO - Is it optical sensor?
Me - I said no and told my work area

VO was checking few topics on the screen and was not completely convinced. (Pressure Moment)
He took Red slip and handed over to me, I thought it got rejected. :(
VO said we cannot completely approve your Visa, we will keep your passport and submit Call Letter from your US Organization, Detailed Resume and some more information.
I was completely confused and was not sure at that time whether this is Refused or Approved. (I had this info - If passport is returned to you, its refused. If it is accepted, its approved). This is partially correct, Administrative processing is the third aspect where VO is not sure to approve VISA at that time and needs to recheck your all documents.
Please do not get panic with this situation. Please submit the docs on time whatever VO has asked and wait for the answer from Embassy. Hopefully, you will get the Visa.

L2 visa

My Organization applied for my wife’s L2 extension in premium along with my L1A extension in February 2020. I received my approval within 2 weeks. However, the status of my wife’s case is still Case Received. The biometrics were completed in March 2020 before COVID hit.

If there is no decision on my wife’s case within 240 days, will she have to back to India? Or can she stay in US as my L1A extension is approved.

Any guidance on this will be appreciated.

Thank you,

L2-EAD- renewal- I765 expiry- 31st May 2020
Hello, everyone!

My EAD is getting expires on November 28th, 2020. I kept the document ready on May 28th May 2020 for dispatch( keeping in mind 180 days time period ). While sending the document I saw the I765 expiry date mentioned on May 31st, 2020.

Do you suggest still sending the documents or should I need to wait for a new I765 form released from USICS, as I am employed on the permanent role and dont want to cause disturbance to my employer due to delay in getting EAD renewal?

I am seeing the USICS website every one hour for any update, still no news on this.

Any suggestion on this highly appreciated

Thank you in advance
Vijay K
