Visa Numbers for EB-2 India and China Expected to Retrogress in May 2012


According to Charlie Oppenheim, Chief, Immigrant Visa Control & Reporting in the State Department, the China and India EB-2 cut-off will retrogress to August 15, 2007 in the May 2012 Visa Bulletin. The reason for this is because demand for immigrant visas for these categories has been increasing. The State Department has not made projections for the remainder of the year.  However, USCIS has indicated that they plan to “pre adjudicate” adjustment applications received through April 2012. The State Department will hold these pre adjudicated cases in the “pending” demand file. That way, the cases will be ready to process if the current number use pattern changes.
