CHECKING IN ON THE VISA BULLETIN

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 predictions about EB2 and EB3, which are the most popular categories for readers of this Blog. Here are some of this month’s highlights:

Categories in which final action dates will remain the same include-
EB-1 China and India;
EB-2 India;
EB-3 China and Philippines;
EB-4 El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, and
EB-5 China.

Categories with modest advancements-
EB-2 China will move forward one month to September 1, 2014;
EB-3 India will advance three months to May 1, 2008;
EB-3 Other Workers China and India will advance one and three months respectively, to May 1, 2007 and May 1, 2008; and
EB-4 Mexico will advance roughly five weeks to October 22, 2016.

It is likely that most employment-based final action dates will hold at their May dates for the month of June with some changes possible in July. What occurs is entirely dependent on demand that may materialize, and continuing consultations with USCIS. The wildcard this year that could cause unanticipated fluctuations in the final action dates is the pace of USCIS field office processing of I-485s.
