On November 1, 2011, the U.S. State Department ("DOS") announced that the U.S. consulate in Chennai would become the sole acceptance center in India for all applications for intracompany transfers under the "blanket L" classification starting on December 1, 2011. On that date, the American embassy in New Delhi and the U.S. consulates in Mumbai, Kolkata, and Hyderabad will no longer accept or process these blanket L applications. This does not affect the applications by spouses and children for L-2 visas, which may still be processed at all posts in India.
