The August 2010 visa bulletin was released this afternoon.
In the Employment based Green Card category, EB3 has new date of 01 JAN 02 for India and 22 SEP 03 for China. EB2 for India is 01 MAR 06and China is also the same 01 MAR 06. EB1, EB4 and EB5 categories for all the countries are current.
This is a great news for EB2 India since the dates have moved from 01 OCT 05 to 01 MAR 06. EB3 India still shows very slow movement.
Looks like the petitions and calls from various organisations to sync up the visa bulletin and USCIS visa numbers are working.
EB2 India movement shatters all my previous projections and even the projection by last month visa bulletin itself. Given that there is one more visa bulletin for this Fiscal Year, lets hope for the best and assume there will be more movement.
