You are here: Home Work Permit Visa Consultation & Training Topics L-1A or L-1B interview with the US Consulate

L-1A or L-1B interview with the US Consulate:

Scenario 1 – L-1A Individual Petition or L-1B Individual Petition - through USCIS & Consulate:

Assume that an US employer filed the L-1A or L-1B petition to USCIS for their future employee (candidate) in US, got the approval notice from USCIS, scheduled the bio-metrics appointment/visa interview for that candidate.

What’s next?

Visa Interview with US Consulate...The toughest part… Within 5 minutes, the visa officer takes a decision and the options are:

  • Approval
  • Rejection
  • Request for more documents by issuing 221g form
  • Requesting for more information by issuing 221g

US Visa officer asks questions to the candidate about candidate’s personal profile, employer information, client information, duties, roles, responsibilities, documents from L-1A or L-1B approval package and so on. If the officer is convinced, he/she inform that candidate that visa is approved and the candidate’s passport can be obtained within a week.

Now the visa interview has become more and more tough by each passing year and if the visa officers are not convinced,

  • Situation 1: They give a yellow slip and ask the candidate to wait in the consulate for hours and analyse candidate’s approved L-1A or L-1B petition package. Then the candidate is called, and the decision (approved or rejected) is informed and the decision taken is at the discretion of visa officers.
  • Situation 2: They issue a 221g slip, which may denote that the visa is rejected or they request for additional documents or it will convey that more information is needed.

If more documents are requested in 221g form, the candidate must collate all documents received from either the attorney firm/immigration desk, and must handover the same to the visa officer by re-visiting the consulate. After some time (days, hours, months, years) the visa officer takes a decision (approved or rejected) and again it is at the discretion of the visa officers.

The struggle that most of the companies face now is that they are not able to prep the candidate per visa officer’s expectations, and either the visa gets rejected or it goes through 221g process.

The result is close to 10,000$ in loss per person for the employer (big companies) in the form of immigration fee and the attorney fee. Not to mention the efforts taken by the immigration desk and other departments of the employer. Moreover, the candidate’s one-time dream is shattered. From our experience, we believe that 25% to 35% rejections would have been avoided if the employer would have taken the appropriate prep process in time.

Scenario 2 – L-1A Petition or L-1B Petition though Blanket - through USCIS & Consulate:

Assume that an US employer prepared the L-1A or L-1B petition with their immigration desk or attorneys and ask the candidates to take the interview through L-1 Blanket process. In this scenario the work permit approval and visa are issued by US consulate. Whatever is explained above in scenario 1 is applicable for scenario 2 also.
