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 in most of the popular categories for readers of this Blog. Here are some highlights:

Philippine EB3 – Charlie again offered his most optimistic predictions for this category. He expects that this category will move several months at a time because demand from those with priority dates from 2011-12 is lower than originally thought. This is consistent with internal MU Law analysis which sees this category progressing into 2013 by the Summer of 2017.

India EB2 and EB3 – Charlie expects that EB2 will move into November 2008 by March of 2017. While he did not comment on EB3 at this time, last month he said that the EB3 category will move only one week per Bulletin.

Worldwide EB-2 and EB-3 – EB-2 will remain current for the foreseeable future. It is our expectation that Worldwide EB-3 will continue to see a slight retrogression, consistent with the recent past.

China EB-2 and EB-3 - These categories will continue to see-saw. The DOS is now seeing the EB-3 category demand pick up because of EB-3 "downgrades" from EB-2.
