The March 2015 Visa Bulletin very unexpectedly provides a huge jump forward for EB-2 India to 01JAN2007 – a leap of 16 months! Last month the Department of State predicted a movement of between 4 – 6 months. There is no word from them this month as to why the big jump this month or what we can expect in the coming months. One theory would be that they are opening up the gates to see what volume of cases come in, and then over the next few months they’ll slow or stop the forward movement, or even retrogress them.
The other employment-based categories all see little to fair movement. EB-3 Worldwide moves 5 months to 01JUN2014, while EB-3 China moves 7 weeks to 22OCT2011 and EB-3 India moves 1 week to 01JAN2004. EB-2 Worldwide remains current and EB-2 China moves 5½ months to 01SEP2010.
