    Obviously, State is trying to prevent visas from being wasted. The September bulletin will be the last for this fiscal year and it will be interesting to see what happens then.

    The last time Section 245i was in effect was from 12/22/00 thru 04/30/01 (courtesy, Battlin' Bill). I find it intriguing that the only category stuck in this time period (in July at 01/01/01 current month 06/01/01), FB4, has blown past this period of heavy AOS demand in just 1 month.

    FB2A is spouses and children of PRs. 4 months ago these folks thought they had a wait of 2.5 years (a substantial chunk of anyones lives) to join their spouses. I am delighted that they are today able to join their families in th USA.

    This is about Visa Availability. Can any one estimate when India would reach (Approximately if not exactly) priority date of June 2003 for other worker category?

    Actually, EB3 for Chinese has only moved to 22 SEP 2003, not the same as Worldwide.
