Hi All,
I would first like to thank immihelp that helped a lot to prepare for my Visa Interview and even documentation work. My visa experience and suggestions are as follows:
 
My company had earlier filed L1A Blanket petition. As this was blanket petition there was not much work needed on the documentation. I had appeared for Visa Interview with my wife and Kid. As most of you must have known by this time that if you are travelling with Kid you are prioritized and are not needed to wait in Queue!!
This may sound good and relieving but for me this was a kind of shock as you dont get enough time to adjust with that kind of environment and feels as if you are being rushed for the Visa Interview,
Not sure if this is the case with all but with me even after knowing that we will be prioritized we didnt expect to land in front of VO so fast. I was not even prepared with all my documents that i kept in the folder!!
***************************************************************************************************************
L1A Visa experience - Aug 2017 in Chennai:

Me: Hello GM
VO: GM. Please give me your passport and documents
Me: Handed over required docs
VO: So do you work for XYZ?
Me: I work for ABC (Yes he misunderstood my company.)
VO: Ok. Which Visa have you applied for?
Me: L1 A
VO: What do you manage?
Me: Answered in one line. " I manage xyz product for my company.........some more details .."Then there was pause of 4-5 seconds<May be VO was expecting more from me!!
VO: Where will you be staying in US?
Me: Answered both City and State
VO: What is your salary?
Me: answered . ( comfortably above 100K)
VO: How many direct and indirect reportees in US and India?
Me: One in India and none in US
VO: Took a gap of around 4-5 secs and was continously typing on Computer. Then handed over blue slip and mentioned that " Sorry I cannot approve your visa at this moment. L1A visa has very narrow scope fro approval. Please check with your HR and file in appropriate category!!!
*****************************************************************************************************************

what went wrong? My response for Question " What do you manage?"
I should have answered more confidently and in atleast 2-3 sentences instead of 1 sentence
But the Killer was that i had no reportees in US and had just one in India. This was last question VO before handing over blue slip.

Post discussion with Immigration consultant and HR they decided to file in L1B individual.(Specialized skills due to technical nature of work)
As this was individual petition had worked a lot on answering the questions in detail, with evidences etc. I took almost 5 months to prepare my petition due to busy office schedule!!
After preparation i got it reviewed from HR and got some feedback and also sample Petition letter. My petition was filed under premium processing and got it approved in 15 days with out any RFE.

Tips for Individual Petition:
1. Give as much relevant details as possible.
2. High chances of approval if you have more than 7-8 exp in company and also
3. Provide some digrams/Flow chart, Table etc for better presentation. This also shows confidence.

*****************************************************************************************************************
L1B Visa INterview experience - Apr 2018@Mumbai:
1. Me: GM
VO: With some smile.Give me your passports only.
Me: Handed over passport.
VO: Why do you want to go to US?
Me: Answered in 1 -2 lines,
VO: Asked for approved petition - I 797,
Me: Done
VO: Started typing on Computer...After 2 mins whom will you report to?
Me: Answered.
VO: After 2-3 mins continuously typing on Computer. Golden words" Your Visa is Approved"
****************************************************************************************************

All the Best !!!!

Hello Everyone,

I follow this sire for a lot of reasons and tracking on some of the experiences is one of them.
So i am sharing mine, hope to help.

This is my h1b renewal + change of employer dropbox ahmedabad consulate exp

timelines:
May 1 : Documents were submitted.
May 3: case was created
May 4: went on review
May 11: Issued

Documents asked: 2 photos, I797 recent , dropbox confirmation letter, passport Old + New
Fortunately VFS wasn't crowded , i went around 1PM on a summer day , it was hot as hell outside.
Only one window was open and the lady was nice to greet and respond to your questions properly.
I was told to check the status in 2-3 days , it usually changes by then.

My take: Although my timeline may be longer compare to other experiences, I am happy as dropbox saved me money of going to Mumbai and staying there for a day and going through the pain of interview and defending your legal status again. It is definitely helpful. Anyhow, bring all of your documents with you, you never know when will you need it.

Sometimes the difference is made not only by the insurance you choose but the broker that sells you the policy. On Dec 2016 my mother had a medical problem in NYC (I've purchased the policy for her a couple of months before her trip). I submitted the claims to the insurance company and only after I decided to involve INSUBUY the reimbursement was paid. Thank you for all your help.

THEY ARE VERY NICE PEOPLE AND THEY ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS. HOWEVER THEY DON'T PAY YOUR CLAIMS. I HAVE A DOCTOR'S OFFICE VISIT IN NEW YORK AND THEY DIDN'T EVEN PAY FOR THE PHARMACY EXPENSES. YOU WILL SUBMIT YOUR CLAIMS AND THEY WILL ASK FOR MORE AND MORE INFORMATION. THEY WILL LOSE SOME OF THE INFO AND YOU WILL NEED TO RE-SUBMIT YOUR CLAIM. DO NOT BUY THIS INSURANCE, YOU THINK YOU ARE INSURED BUT YOU ARE NOT.

Hello Management:

Just a quick note to say that, I had a great experience with your agent Teresa (Xtn 113), who have excellent service:
- explaining my options to me, and to understand the differences in coverage
- helping me narrow down my choices
- helping me make the right choice (hopefully).

I just bout a near $3000 visitors health policy for my parents, and she helped me make that decision in comparison to others that I was contemplating online for just a $1000.

Regards,
Anand R

I would like to take the moment to appreciate the help she provided regarding my insurance card. She has good understanding about product you offer and her follow up was quick.

You should have more of these kind of people to increase your business.

Gentlemen,

I just hung up with a "Lady -name Theresa" in your office.

I'm a "Senior citizen" and the service Theresa provided is so uniquely excellent that I had to take time and have to write this!

I hope all other in your business will emulate her example of service!

Please thank her on my behalf

Mr Ravinder K

Hi
Wanted to share my experience with Insubuy and how they help. When my Mom's medical claim was denied by the insurance due to the fact that the provider submitted after 90 days timelimit, I reached out to Insubuy claims issue resolution team for assistance to reconsider the claim.

Fellon from that team at Insubuy reached out to me and promptly coordinated with the insurance to explain my situation. She was able to convince them and help that claim reprocessed.

I really appreciate the help from Insubuy

Thanks
Karthik

Hi,
I called customer service today to seek advice for the best visitor's insurance coverage options for my parents visiting US from India. I was helped by your customer service representative, Lyle.
Lyle was very courteous and patient with me. He advised Safe travels USA comprehensive option for my father, who is 78 because of better coverage for sudden acute onset of preexisting conditions for his age group. He also advised Atlas America for my mother, who is 64 as one of the best cost/coverage combination for her age group.

I went with his advice and bought the above two policies through your website. I really appreciate Lyle's help to select the right insurance options for my parents.
Thanks
Anil
