L1B specialised visa -premium processing
My case was approved yesterday and it feels pretty amazing!

Just thought this will help others as i know I was constantly worrying about time lines so...

Initial documents sent through premium processing - AUG 10th

RFE received- AUG 19th (was given until NOV 14 to respond)

Responded - NOV 12th (I recommend not leaving it this late as FEDEX had a system problem and I nearly missed the deadline)

Case approved - Nov 21st

Now I am waiting for the approval notice and to schedule an interview which I’m not sure how long this part takes.

I am happy to help anyone who needs help and also happy to hear other people’s experience on how long do I have to wait to get the approval notice and interview.

Also I highly recommend premium processing but you are also likely to receive an RFE from what my attorney old me.

Thanks 😊

L1B Approved
Here is what I went through...

Interview Time 9.15AM
Reached at around 8.45 and waited for 10 Mins before entering the Queue. Stayed @ThePark like all..

Keep 3 sets of I129S and I797 together or
you can keep 3 sets of I129 and 3 Sets of I797 separately.. I was a bit confused on this.

Security guy will anyway give those 3 I797 Docs back ..

Make sure You have the DD (I've seen a couple forgot their DD).
Mention your full name and Passport number on the DD backside
Pen Color doesn't matter.. I've used Black.

Moving to the next Building..
Queue again to submit the DD and get the fingerprints validated..

Takes around 30 mins for your turn to come for Interview..
(If your meeting your family members in US, get their VISA copy) A Doctor Couple before me don't have the VISA copy whom they are visiting in US. . but Approved anyway.

Here comes my Turn...

VO: Hello... Passport please..
Me: Hello Officer .. Good Morning... Here it is.... And passed the Docs as well.

VO: What is the Nature of your company
ME: Healthcare product manufacturing Sir...

VO: Is it a product company
ME: Yes Sir, Xxxx products manufacturing

VO: So you work as a scientist ?
Scientist ?????? My Eyes Blinked for a while...
ME: No Sir, I work as a Finance supply chain Consultant in IT.

VO: What is the technology you are into...
ME: Technology working and the modules if any

VO: Do you work on any customized tools
ME: Yes, Company specific Tools And told the Name...

VO: What will you do in US.
ME: Help Team in US in smoother transition from their existing Legacy applications into Diff Apps
And provide Knowledge Transfer to the Team in US on the customized tool mentioned Above.

Paused for a while Typing something....

VO: Your VISA is Approved and you will get your Passport in 2 days
Don't forget to take the Stamped I129S copies while you travel US. ....SMILES.....
ME: Tan Q Officer.... Smiles.....

All the Best Guys...!!!!
Keep it Simple.... I did tumble at first but managed to explain in simple Terms...

At the END... LUCK should work in your favour...

L1B Approved
Date: 15/11/19 (Friday)
I went there in the morning. be there 15 minutes before, there is no point reaching too early .

1) What is your designation? ** Lead ** Dev
2) Where are you going in US?
3) Same company ? ( yes)
4) What do you do ? (told)
5) Follow up question on my work (explained)
6) Your salary in US and India (told)

and then she said "Your visa is approved, Congrats on your new job"

Learning - while inside the room, you will hear other candidates, don't get influenced with the interviews that are going on. You will notice that some counselors are strict etc, Do not get influenced by that, stick to what you know and believe in your self. Understand what the L1B visa is for and whether or not your profile suits that.
GOOD LUCK everyone.
