Advance in EB-2 India Category Expected on May 2011 Visa Bulletin


According to the U.S. Department of State (DOS), since October 2010 there has been a substantial decrease in the number of EB-1 filings. Therefore, DOS has indicated that those otherwise unused EB-1 numbers will drop down to the EB-2 category, which will allow them to advance the EB-2 India category on the May 2011 Visa Bulletin. Currently, the Department of State is expecting that at least 12,000 additional numbers will be available in the EB-2 category. The May Visa Bulletin will be issued in mid-April, and we will post more information at that time.

    When you say “According to DOS” is this an insider news or can I look it up in DOS publications somewhere ?

      This is information gleaned through the American Immigration Lawyers Association. I am not sure the DOS would have published it anywhere, but typically it is accurate information.
