June 2013 Visa Bulletin was released earlier today. Date for EB2 India is 01 SEP 04 and EB2 China is 15 JUL 08. The cut-off for all other EB2 countries are Current.
As expected the EB2 India has not moved. The good news here is EB2 China dates are moving, which means till EB2 India reaches that date, it can consume all the spill over numbers that comes to EB2 category.
The demand data for this month had been released earlier. The cumulative demand prior to Jan 1, 2005 rose to 450 from 425 from 375 from 300 and the cumulative demand prior to 1 Jan 2009 is 24,050 from 23,850 from 23,400 from 23,975.
July, August and September Visa Bulletins will be the last 3 for this Fiscal Year. I am still hoping EB2 dates will start moving from next bulletin onwards. Now, how much movement is all dependent on two main factors -- how much spillover EB2 India will get and how much porting will happen. Going by this month's demand data, the porting is increasing steadily. Assuming, USCIS/DOS is giving about 260 per month green cards till date for EB2 India. Then, if the spillover is about 10,000 then the dates will move to 01-JAN-08. I am hoping atleast that will happen.
Cut-off dates for EB3 India is 08 JAN 03 and EB3 China is 01 SEP 08. As expected, EB3 India is moving at one week or two weeks per month pace. For EB3 India, it is going to move at this pace only till there is a legislative change. The reason being there is no spill over to EB3 India category. Hence only about 2800 green cards are given for this category every year.
