Looks like singhsa3's assertion is quite true. Based on the comments on the visa bulletin, EB3 is maxed out for the year. EB2 might be next in line esp with slight forward movement (EB2-India, China) in the June bulletin.

Dear Friends,

June 2008 official bulletin has clarified everything, what Mr. Singhsa3 quoted was partly true but it was for EB3, i.e. it is going to retrogress from July. I guess we can focus our thoughts towards our goal of Backlog reduction etc..


"E. EMPLOYMENT THIRD PREFERENCE VISA AVAILABILITY

Demand for numbers, primarily by Citizenship and Immigration Services Offices for adjustment of status cases, is expected to bring the Employment Third preference category very close to the annual numerical limit in June. As a result, this category is likely to experience retrogressions or visa unavailability beginning in July. Such action would only be temporary, however, and a complete recovery of the cut-off dates would occur for October, the first month of the new fiscal year.
"

regards

kris

Peace from my side chief...

btw .. was looking at the june 08 bulletin.

it says:

Demand for numbers, primarily by Citizenship and Immigration Services Offices for adjustment of status cases, is expected to bring the Employment Third preference category very close to the annual numerical limit in June. As a result, this category is likely to experience retrogressions or visa unavailability beginning in July. Such action would only be temporary, however, and a complete recovery of the cut-off dates would occur for October, the first month of the new fiscal year.

-----
Did DOS indicate that this was the case for EB3 or for EB2?


Peace

Default Let us work towards gathering support for the bills...

What the June visa bulletin has shown us that the "demand for visa's" far exceeds the "supply of visa's". The only way we can have meaningful forward movement of dates is to get more visa's into the system. Let us all work towards gathering support for the bills HR5882 and HR5921

Please contact your lawmakers to support these 2 bills. Recapture can introduce 218K visa's into the system. Come on folks, Join your state chapter and work on the immediate action items.

I am not talking about the veracity of the info posted by the thread opener, but am not clear how that info relates to what the visa bulletin writes about the EB3.

The initial poster talks about EB2 only isn't it ?

I guess this is what the OP wanted to tell.

EB2 India will NOT fly beyond last months of 04 and into 05/06 in the last quarter as many people are expecting it to fly. There is a slim chance for retrogression if they see more demand. None of the EB2/3 categories will not move as they did last year during the last year July VB.

There is a clear & heavy demand from USCIS for visa numbers in all categories and DOS is moving the dates already in such a way to maximize the utilization of visa numbers.

Check in the i-140, in the box that says 'Notice Type'

If it says "Mem of Profession w/Adv Deg, or of Exceptn'l Ability Sec.203(b)(2)"
then it should be EB2 (AFAIK)

Default Can I file I-485 now ?

All,

I have a situation and wanted to know your opinion:

Previous Company -
Labor category - EB3 (PD - Jan'04)
I-140 approved (Feb'07)

Switched company to a new employer in Jun'07 (Yeah! just before everything became current)

New Company -
New Labor filed: EB-2 category (Dec'07)
I-140 filed and is pending (Feb'08) (trying to port old PD).

Based on the June'08 visa bulletin can I file my I-485 by using the old priority date of EB-3 labor and old approved I-140....although my current I-140 (EB-2) is still pending.


Gurus what are your thoughts.......

Thanks to all your responses in advance.

Default ! Gc_kavalli

ur labor must say that MS required for this position and the relavent pay data must be shown in the labor application..
also you I-140 shoudl say what Eb category it is!!!

also:
a.) You can ask your lawyer
b.) If you ad said MS required, then EB2 is probable!

This is what has put everyone off really. I hope singhsa realizes that lot of ppl visit this forum and misleading posts do no good really. Already lot of people are disheartened with this whole GC process and his misleading thread topic didn't do much to help either.

I wonder why he picked EB2 in particular? He has amended it to July-Oct which is good but his original post was really misleading and disheartening.

There may be no further movements in EB2 India category for the rest of the year (July onwards till Oct).

A retrogression is a possibility.
