June 2013 Visa Bulletin Announcement
About a week ago the Visa Bulletin was released by the UCSIS. The cut off dates for India and China were announced and are as follows: EB2 for India is September and EB2 for China is August. The main impact of this announcement is that since Chinese dates have moved, India can consume all spill over applications that full under EB2. The following is a Visa Bulleting Prediction from the USCIS:
China: Up to two months
India: At this time it appears that the availability of “otherwise unused” Employment Second preference numbers will allow for movement of this cut-off date in August and/or September. It is expected that such movement will generate heavy new applicant demand, primarily by those who are upgrading their status from the Employment Third preference category. A sustained level of heavy demand could impact the cut-off date at some point during fiscal year 2014.
This announcement indicates that the DOS is following a completely different strategy this year. At this rate, all dates are being moved in one month increments, which indicate an entirely different array of application activity for attorneys throughout the country. Currently, the status of immigration deadlines and appointment announcements are in new waters, with no stability in sight. The only option is to wait patiently and watch.
In any case, the entire team at Buda Law Group is fully prepared and equipped to deal with your EB2 Application regardless of the deadlines and pressure set forth by the government.
If any further questions exist, they will gladly be answered by the team here at Buda Law Group.
