Chennai Post Takes Over All Blanket L Processing in India

Effective December 1, 2011, all Blanket L visa applications in India will be adjudicated by the U.S. Consulate General in Chennai. The Blanket L category includes intracompany transfers occupying executive and managerial positions, as well as specialized knowledge positions. Previously the U.S. posts in New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Hyderabad were also able to adjudicate applications under the Blanket L category, but now only the post in Chennai has authority to process such applications. However, individual L visas and L dependents may continue to process visas at all the posts in India.
