Need urgent advise - L1A extension

My L1A individual visa is expiring shortly.I am planning to go for a new blanket petition and to travel to Mexico for stamping for L1A visa.
I received a 221g - not clearly approvable response from Chennai consulate in November 2017 for L1A blanket visa, after which I re-applied in individual category and was approved after an RFE. Will this have an impact now if i am trying to apply in blanket category again for L1A? Anyone please advise asap and your help is appreciated.

L1A Extension + L2 EAD Extension of spouse
Hello – We’ve been in US for ~ 2.5 years now. I’m on L1A visa with a petition end date of 09/19. My wife is on L2 and working with het L2 EAD too valid until 09/19. We were supposed to go to Mexico for our L1A Blanket stamping on 03/31 however due to COVID we couldn’t. I have now taken dates of 05/26. This too is contingent to the fact that US-Mexico borders open by then and the consulate in Mexico becomes fully functional. If that happens, both of us should have a valid visa and I can apply for my wife’s EAD extension and she can possibly hope to get it by September [ 3 months to be very optimistic].
However, If Mexico is not an option, my Organization would apply for an extension of EAD, L1 and L2 visas concurrently from US. With premium not being an option these days, the extension could come thru in ~ 4-5 months and so would EAD.
The benefit of going to Mexico is that the rejection rates of L1A there are possibly less. I wanted to seek help from this group as to what would be the best option for me in this situation. Has there been a decrease in rejections on L1A extensions that’s been observed lately? Also, with USCIS being close-down – could this potentially delay further the extension processes. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

I'm on L1B, I-94 is valid till October 2020 and L1B Petition (I-129) had expired recently.
And my spouse's L2 EAD, i94 had expired recently.

My company had applied for my spouse I-94 extension and I had received a letter from USCIS with the I-94 extension receipt number.

Is it possible to apply for L2 EAD with the I-94 extension receipt number ?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Visa status due to COVID-19
Hey Guys,

I hope you all are safe and healthy.

I just wanted to get some insight on the visa status for those people whose visa was approved right before the world has been locked down but are unable to travel due to the pandemic. My L1-B visa was approved at the Chennai Consulate on February 11th and I was supposed to travel to US on March 15th, but my company decided to push my start date to avoid all unnecessary chaos and for my safety. Although, my visa is valid till November 2022, I am (like some of the other people out there) unable to travel at this point and might stay in India for a couple more weeks or months or however long the lockdown continues.

So, my question to you all is, what happens to the days I was not in the US? Will they cancel my visa for the days I was not in the US and extend my visa validity for the number of days I wasn't there? Or my visa validity is going to remain as is? Can someone shed some light on this please?
