VISA BULLETIN PROJECTIONS FOR THE REST OF 2017

Rate this Entry
by Chris Musillo

The Department of State’s Visa Bulletin guru, Charlie Oppenheim, hosts monthly meetings with the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Charlie Oppenheim is the Department of State’s Chief of the Control and Reporting Division. He is the officer who is responsible for producing the Visa Bulletin each month.

This month’s Check In With Charlie featured projections for EB2 and EB3, which are the most popular categories for readers of this Blog. Here are some of this month’s highlights, along with our analysis:

EB-2 Worldwide. Although there may be a retrogression in September, the Worldwide EB-2 should return to current in October and remain there for the rest of this calendar year.

EB-2 India. This category is expected to use the full allotment of visas in September, which may result in the category becoming temporarily unavailable. It should have a July 2008 date in October 2017.

EB-3 Worldwide. This category will remain current or close to current for the foreseeable future.

EB-3 India. This category will advance several months in September 2017. However, because of expected demand in FY 2018 for EB-3 Worldwide, we will not see fast progress after October 2017. India EB-3 benefited in FY 2017 because demand for Worldwide EB-3 was light, resulting in Worldwide EB-3 numbers spilling into India EB-3.

EB-3 Philippines. In FY 2018, we will not see this category move nearly as fast as it did in FY 2017. We will have a better idea of where Phils EB-3 is headed with the publication of the October 2017 Visa Bulletin, which is the first of FY 2018.
