Given the high scrutiny and denial rates of individual L-1 petitions, preparing Blanket L applications has historically been a better option. While Blanket L applications remain a better option, consular officers are beginning to scrutinize these cases more than they had previously. Our panel of experts will provide practical suggestions for difficult Blanket L issues.

Featured Topics

  • Standard of Review: How to Prove Eligibility of “Clear and Convincing” Evidence
  • Renewal of Blanket Ls: To Travel or Not to Travel?
  • Visa Stamp Discrepancies and When to Renew L-1 and L-2
  • When Are Dependents Required to Travel?
  • CBP Errors: Practical Tips for Correcting Them (e.g., CBP Admitting L-1 Holders in L-1A Status Instead of L-1B)

Free Downloadable Seminar Recording Included with Live Registration Included with registration, participants in the live seminar will receive a free downloadable recording of the seminar. It will be available in participant's Agora Digital Library approximately 4-7 business days from the seminar date. Order Recordings
