Priority Date projections for EB-2 India and China

News Release from Jewell & Associates, PC – March 19, 2012 The recent rapid progress of the cut-off dates for Indian and Chinese nationals in the EB-2 preference category will end soon, according to the Department of State’s Chief of Visa Control and Reporting, Charlie Oppenheim:

On March 16, 2012, at the AILA Midwest Regional Conference in Chicago, Charlie Oppenheim… informed participants that he will likely retrogress India and China-mainland born Employment-Based Second Preference priority dates to around August 2007, effective with either the May or June 2012 Visa Bulletin. He also advised that he projects that all EB-1 visas available in FY2012 will be used this year, resulting in no “spilldown” to EB-2.
