MAY VISA BULLETIN WILL RETROGRESS FOR SOME EB-2

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo


The Department of State's point man on the Visa Bulletin has confirmed for AILA that India and China EB-2 will retrogress to August 15, 2007, a dramatic retrogression from the recent progression of China and India EB-2 number. Charlie Oppenheim, Chief, DOS Immigrant Visa Control & Reporting, says that demand for the EB-2 numbers is high due to the progression of EB-2 dates from November 2011 - April 2012.


USCIS has informed Mr. Oppenheim that they will continue to "preadjudicate" adjustment applications received through April. The "preadjudicated" cases will be held by the State Department in the "pending" demand file. That way, the cases will be ready in October, or earlier, if the current number use pattern changes, and they are needed at the end of this fiscal year to assure utilization of the full employment-based permanent resident visa allocation.


The Department of State historically has progressed dates to stimulate demand in the visa numbers. That practice came under some criticism during the Summer 2007 "VisaGate" incident when the DOS progressed to 'current' all categories in response to the USCIS' inability to approve any I-485, Applications for Adjustment of Status. This flooded the USCIS with 300,000 Applications in the Summer 2007, forcing USCIS to begin approving I-485 Applications. Since VisaGate the progression of visa number has been measured, until this accelerated EB-2 progression began in November 2011.
