L1A Blank Visa Stamping Experience Chennai 2012
I went for L1 A Blanket stamping at US Consulate in Chennai and was given a pink slip on Feb XX, 2012. I was given back all the 3 approved / attested copies of I-129s forms and was asked to go to counter 31 at the Chennai consulate. At the other counter they asked for my resume that I did not carry. I was asked to submit all the documents in the pink slip. I submitted all the documents by Feb 24, 2012.
Status on the Chennai US consulate website still says pending, but I received my stamped passport yesterday. There is a lag of two days between actual issue and update on the site. I have lived in the US for 11 years prior to this on different visas and was disturbed that it was not issued straight away.
Summary: Carry a copy of a detailed resume and if your case is genuine the wait will not be too long. Also, there is a delay of 2 days on status update on the US consulate website.
