May 2011 Visa Bulletin -- finally some movement

May 2011 Visa Bulletin is out and the priority dates are 01 Jul 06 for EB2 India and 15 Apr 02 for EB3 India. For china the numbers are 01 Mar 04 for EB3 and 22 Jul 06 for EB2.

The India EB2 number has been 08 May 06 from September 2010 bulletin. Finally, we have seen almost 2 months worth of movement in EB2 India. The EB3 India has moved 7 days from the last visa bulletin -- thaw was pretty much expected.

It is a happy news to see movement in the EB2 India dates. I guess we will see more movement for EB2 India in the coming bulletins as USCIS have indicated the reduction in EB1 demand and most of the spill over benefitting Eb2 India We will have to wait and see what the actual numbers turns out to be. It will interesting to see if FY 2011 , can get 19,000 Green Cards for EB2 India, like last year or more than that.

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

  1. Hi Aditi/Ganesh,
    Appreciate you taking time to post May'11 numbers. If not much of a problem can you please anticipate when will my case become current based on the current movement.
    My case details: Feb 2011 India EB2

  2. Hey Ganesh/Aditi,
    The intent of me reaching out was to bring more awareness of the core issue of retrogression impacting thousands of employment based applicants, potential H1B visa holders who someday would be sailing in the same boat towards permanent residents and thousands of F1 students who would follow the same path as millions of others have done.

    On the web, I see numerous blogs, websites, chatrooms, discussion rooms etc where there is a lot of angst about the future of legal tax paying immigrants but there is only one solid movement (in Immigration Voice) that needs support to raise a voice against this retrogression impacting the future of so many individuals and families.

    I am trying to unite these silo groups/blogs towards a realistic solution as suggested by Immigration Voice. Their solution to recapture the thousands of unused visas throught the years could be a potential solution to this issue.

    I have also reached out to a few blog writers, columnists in papers such as NYtimes, WSJ etc and other administrators of few other websites ot raise a concern about this 'tech slavery' as it results from this 'retogression' issue.

    I would like to connect you to the admins from IV so that our voices unite and we work towards a common solution.

    Please let me know if this interests you.

    I look forward to your response. I can be reached on
