This writer still expects rapid advances for EB-2 India and China in the next 2 months as the 4th quarter spillover of unused visas from EB1, EB2-ROW, EB4 and EB5 fall up, down and across. Anecdotal information of EB2-India folks with PDs in the Apr-June 2008 date range, who have elected Consular Processing receiving fee notices from NVC has lent strength to this expectation. Stay tuned!

    Any idea as to whether F2A would move with the same vigor/trend as in 2010?

    Eb-3 India might as well pack their bags and go home as this will take another 15 yrs to get current.

    Any insight into how EB3 ROW will move? Seems to be stuck in snail pace for the last few months.

    Vijay - It's hard to predict the movement of Family numbers due to lack of any pending demand. At least employment based numbers have the pending 485 inventory report that gets released once every few months. Without this kind of statistics, one cannot do any predictions on F2A future movements.

    You have mentioned "Anecdotal information of EB2-India folks with PDs in the Apr-June 2008 date range, who have elected Consular Processing receiving fee notices from NVC has lent strength to this expectation. Stay tuned!"

    My priority date is June 24, 2008 and am planning to apply 485. Will my date become current in the next 2 months?
