Murthy Visits U.S. Consulates in India on Recent Trip

Several times each year, Sheela Murthy travels to India and, with adequate notice, requests meetings at U.S. consulates there on behalf of Murthy Law Firm clients. In January, the consulates in Hyderabad and Chennai were generous with their time and in sharing information on their policies and procedures with Murthy and her legal team. At each consulate, she met with the Chief of the Consular Section or the Chief of CIU, along with the Nonimmigrant Visa (NIV) Section Chief and another Consul Officer. Senthil Kumar and Gnanamookam from the Chennai office of Murthy Immigration Services, Private Limited made up the legal team that accompanied her on the visits.

Such meetings are opportunities for employers of H1B or L1B workers to meet with senior officials in the nonimmigrant visa sections of the appropriate consulate, accompanied by Ms. Murthy, to present the bona fides of the company, explain the case/s, provide documents, and answer questions. This service is also available to individual and family clients with cases they wish to take to a consulate in India.

There is no guarantee that pending cases will receive approvals or that visas will be issued within a specific timeframe, of course, but the Murthy Law Firm has seen such meetings spur results for cases in which visas were long delayed. For more information on this service, you may send inquiries to (if you are inquiring for an individual or family), or to (if you are inquiring for a company).
