I need some advise regarding DS 160 form.
Last year I was in US and my L1B petition for extension was denied. I think in DS160 form we don’t need to mention petition denial and need to mention only if there was a consulate denial in visa interview. However to be on the safe side I am planning to write the following in my DS 160 form in the question “Was you visa denied before…”. Can you please suggest if my writing in quotes below is fine or not?
As my I94 expired in Sep2012 but I left the country on Oct2012, I am thinking about writing the detail for ease in interview. My petition definitely was applied on time and I was very much within 240 grace period of USCIS.
This is what I am planning to write
"My visa was never denied at consulate.
I was in US in L1B visa between May XX, 2010 and Oct XX 2012. My L1B visa as well as I94 were expiring on September XX 2012. In July 2012 my company ABC filed an L1B petition in premium procesing for my extension of stay of another 2 years. However we received an RFE from USCIS. ABC responded back the RFE but the petition was eventually denied. ABC received the denial notice on XX October 2012. My company ABC notified me about the same, asked me to stop working immediately and leave the country within 10 days. I stopped working and left the country within 10 days on XX October 2012."
