The processing procedures for L-1 renewal applications changed a few weeks ago, without prior notice and effective immediately. Canadian citizens that are renewing their L1 can no longer process their application at a port of entry or airport.
The L1 renewals need to be sent to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) service center. The processing time varies depending on the processing as follow:
- Regular processing: The delays to process the application is between 3 to 5 months;
- Expedited processing: USCIS will process the application in 15 days for additional fees of 1410 USD$.
