Feb 2011 Visa Bulletin and analysis

Feb 2011 Visa Bulletin is out and the priority dates are 08 May 06 for EB2 India and 22 FEB 02 for EB3 India. For china the numbers are 01 Jan 04 for EB3 and 01 Jul 06 for EB2.

The India EB2 number has been 08 May 06 from September 2010 bulletin. The EB3 India has moved 21 days from the last visa bulletin and has moved 1 month and 7 days since October 2010 visa bulletin.

I still feel, EB2 India will move forward quite a bit, by Sept 2011. Last year, in oct 09 it started with 22 JAN 05 and went all the way till 08 MAY 06. Ofcourse, the numbers were much lesser compared to this year. But, we can still expect it to go a priority date of Jan 07 by sept. This is under the assumption that they will still giving out about 13,000 Green Cards in the EB2 India category, similar to what they have done last year and the previous year. I think we will see movement from next visa bulletin onwards. Lets hope for the best !!!

For EB3 India, it is going to move at this pace only till there is a legislative change.

Also, on the side note, earlier yesterday, the Mumbai consulate website said the cutoff date for EB2 was current. But, they were quick enough to change it to 08 MAY 06 after many emails to them, one of them from me.
