When my L1 was was reject i was not affected much because company choose some of the people and apply for L1 blanket petition for all of us and some of the employees has visa rejected and some obtained sucessfully also. After working for eight year in my company i got the apportunity to go to USA for attending the conference for the product i am specialist on.
