      As per instructions, they accept credit card but when my colleague went credit card machine was not working. He had to pay via cash so DD is better option.

    I've done it twice(got the visa both times). Questions will be primarily around your skills and US salary. Make sure to carry a credit card or cash for the payment,they do not accept debit cards(I learned this the hard way).

      OP
      Only 500$ we have to pay ?? Right ??

      Did you attended L1 visa ??
      May 13, 2018
    • LinkedIn nODp84
      Yes,500$ and yes,I attended the interview for Blanket L1 both times.
      May 13, 2018

      OP
      Why 2 time for same L1 ???
      May 13, 2018
    • LinkedIn nODp84
      At the expiry of my first l1 visa the company chose to file for a brand new visa instead of an extension. This is advantageous because the extension is just for 2 years but the new visa is valid for 3 years with the possibility of a 2 year extension after the 3 year period( so a total of 5 more years).

      Great. What kind of questions do they ask ?? How long interview goes ??
      May 13, 2018
  • LinkedIn bobdbuildr
    The first time the interview was short and quick and I was only asked to explain my specialized skills. The second time around, the interviewer asked me about my skills,my salary and the status of my dependent(my spouse). However,the tone of the interview was largely positive and my visa got approved in the end. The person in front of me in the line was also applying for a L1 blanket visa but his visa got rejected. From what I could gather,the interviewer was concerned by his salary being too low for someone with specialized skills.

      Does 150k base salary seems sufficient for L1B?
      May 13, 2018
    • LinkedIn bobdbuildr
      It worked for me,that was my base salary when I got the visa.

    In my case the dates were available for same week also, but my documents will be shipped by US lawyer team by mid of month,so they ask us to book appointment little late
