April 2014 Visa Bulletin and Analysis


April 2014 Visa Bulletin was released last week. 

EB2:

Date for EB2 India is 15 NOV 04 and EB2 China is 08 MAR 09. The cut-off for all other EB2 countries are Current.

The good news is EB2 China keeps moving forward. Almost a month movement.

As expected no movement for EB2 India. I think EB2 India dates is going to stay the same till June 2014 Visa Bulletin. It might start moving big from July 2014.

If you are waiting to file I-485, please use this opportunity to gather all the documents and keep it in place:



EB3:

Cut-off dates for EB3 India is 15 SEP 03 and EB3 Philippines is 15 JUN 07 and all other countries is 01 SEP 12.

Good news here is all countries except India and Philippines are at 01 OCT 12. Also, their corresponding dates have moved 1 month from last Visa Bulletin. For Philippines it has moved 1.5 months.

In a surprise move, the EB3 India date didn't move forward. I was expecting it to move one week per visa bulletin.

I-485 Pending inventory:

New I-485 inventory was released in Jan 2014. Thanks to USCIS for improving the format. It is much easier to read now. The CSV download has been replaced by excel download, which gives different tabs for different countries.

There are 118,478 applicants pending in the new inventory data while it was 116,159 last time. 

EB2 India has 31,242 applicants pending before 01 MAY 2010. The number has reduced from 32,539 from the last time data. There are 12,405 applicants before 01 JAN 09 priority date. Depending on the number of applicants porting from EB3 to EB2, the date can very well cross 01 JAN 09 this year, assuming the same amount of spillover EB2 India gets like previous years.

EB3 India has 32,066 applicants before 01 SEPT 2007 Priority date. Even though it has reduced from 34,336 from last inventory data, the number for Dec 2003 has increased from 885 to 1304. This makes it tough for the dates to cross DEC 2003 by Sept 2014.

There still seems to be some data errors. For example, there are 5 applicants listed under EB2 India for August 2013. There is one applicant listed under EB3 Philippines for May 2008. 

Demand Data:

There is no demand data yet corresponding to April 2014 bulletin.

  1. Thanks Ambals. I have a query. The stages for GC for EB2 are labor-->I-140-->I-485 and GC. I-485 data shows people who have applied for I-485. Where do we get the data for applicants who have I-140 pending/approved and in queue for I-485. is it part of demand data?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I-140 and I-485 can be applied for concurrently. You don't need to wait for I-140 approval to apply for I-485.

      Delete
    2. Demand Data gives the visa number that DOS has assigned for I-485 applicants.
      Trackitt.com gives an idea, not everyone is there.
      The labor department data gives the labor list.

  2. Hi Ambals,

    In your assessment, by which month and year, March 2009 EB2 priority date should go current?

    Appreciate your efforts...

  3. Hi Ambals,

    I'm not going to ask you when my PD will be current. Don't worry! My question is - Historically, by end of every fiscal year (September), does cut off date for India match the cut off date of China. For instance, if the cut off date for china becomes June 2009 on September 2014, will India's cut off date also be in May or June 2009 time frame? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. lol asking about when your PD will be current would had been better question than what you asked,On what logic you expect them to be same time frame :).

      Delete
    2. As per the rule, if China is ahead of India then all the spill over will go to India only. If there is not enough spill over then India may still lag behind. On other hand if there is lots of spill over left, even after India reaching the same date as China then both country will move together (i.e. both country will have same priority date).

      This is the only rule which is followed, dont depend on history data to make a rule like both country will have the same cutoff date always (although it might be same historically, it does not mean that it is a rule). As explained above, there are chances that India may lag behind.

      Hope this helps.

      Delete
    3. Thanks for the rule. That is a perfect explanation for the question.

  4. First of all thanks for writing this blog & providing latest information to us. I am sure this will create a good laugh for most of the people. I have a PD of Apr 2010 in EB3 india category. That's right EB3 India. Is there a reason to even hope that something might work out in next 5 years without the reform. I can't depend on the reform as it gets shot down almost always. So just wanted to see what the experts out here think about this. Online calculators are telling me dates in the year of 2038 :) Are those realistic ...

    Replies
    1. There are over 32K people waiting before you who are still waiting to get their I-485 approved and not to mentioned the unknown numbers of others who have approved I-140 that have not filed their I-485. I would say that year 2038 is realistic!

      Delete
    2. Wow.. What triggers down making dates current. If I remember correctly, EB3 Dates were made current back in 2007. Is there a reason to assume that it will happen again in future.

      Delete
    3. You should start working on porting to EB2 India.
      Without reform, 2038 is correct. Sorry, that is the truth.

    4. Did you use this calculator...http://www.myprioritydate.com/?

    2. There are about 19,000 applicants in front of you as per latest inventory data. Assuming, about 5,000 porting, there has to be 25,000 immigrant visas available for EB2 India. Given this, it is more likely June 2015.

      Delete
    3. How did you calculate this.

      Is it like 25000/15 moths to get to June 2015 = 1667.

      So 1667 GC are given per month?

      Just curious to know the calculation.

      Delete
    4. EB2 India is unique in the sense, they wait for the spillover numbers to be clear and they apply them during last quarter of fiscal -- july, aug and sept. So, most visas are given during that time.

      Delete
    5. How did you assume the 5000 porting. Any basis for that

      Delete
    6. porting cases won't be added to the pending inventory queue anymore unless the applicant has pd before sep 2004 or the date advances to cover the applicant's PD and he files I-485 at the time. we know from latest demand data that about 1500-2000 porting cases came in since they last published the demand data numbers. Considering all this, A figure of 5000 is way too high.

  8. Hello Ambals- from the inventory, it seems like EB1 usage has increased many fold, so has EB5 and porting from EB3 to 2 as well. I am worried this will reduce spillover by quite a bit. I have a PD of June 25, 2008 EB2. Is there any reason to believe that my PD wont get current? Will be applying for AOS. Would appreciate your insights.

  9. Hi ambals.
    please enlighten me, how does the 1485 inventory differ from the demand data in terms of estimating our pd to be current. Tnx much.

    1. Demand Data -- Published by DOS. They are "pre-adjudicated" numbers.
      I-485 inventory -- Published by USCIS. Count of all the pending I-485 applications.

    2. Thank u sir.just a follow up question, So our queue in the gc would be at the end of demand data + 1485 inventory list?

      Delete
    3. There is some overlap. We don't know exactly how much. Demand Data has people who did counselor processing while I-485 pending inventory does not have it, while, I-485 pending inventory has people who have not been assigned visa numbers.

  10. Excellent analysis and thanks a million for the time and effort you put into this every month! My priority date is march 2010 in India EB2.

  11. Hi Ambals,

    Is it a risk if someone changes the job as soon as getting the GC (ie., from the employer who filed the GC to the new employer)? Have you heard of any issues reported from such people? Will it impact in anyway when applying for Citizenship?

    1. It is preferable to be there for 1 year. Atleast 6 months. Check this -- http://www.murthy.com/2013/06/24/job-change-during-or-after-i-485-approval/

But the perm with my new employer was filed in Jan'14. Given the current wait time of 9 months, it would get approved(hopefully) in October. Do you think the dates will rollback in October/Nov or stay after the predicted big move in July/Aug?

    Hi,
    I have a question with respect to my H1B visa.

    My PERM & I-140 were approved from employer A and EB2 priority date is july-2012. I joined employer B in march 2013 and the GC hasn't been initiated (H1-B expiry march 2016)

    Now I want to change jobs and wish to join employer C.

    My concerns are:

    1. Can Employer C easily transfer my H1B wthout any issue

    2. I know Employer A hasn't revoked my 140 so how many years extension do I get 2 years or 3 years.

    3. Once Employer C files my GC will I have any issues .

    1. Chances are good that your date might become current this aug/sep. If your I-485 application is already in, there is nothing more that you need to do. so, your presence is not required. however, if you haven't filed your petition, then make sure to provide your lawyers with all the necessary documents to file i-485, ead and ap before you go vacation. if you are unsure your lawyer will work with you during your overseas stay, then you may have to think about postponing your vacation to a later time.

    1. Oct-2014 - It will come till Feb 2009
    2. Oct 2015 - It will come all the way till Mar 2011.

    There is very less demand during later months of 2010 and begining of 2011.

    But demand after Apr-2011 till 2013 are the heighest so far. So expect a delay of 7-8 years of processing for such dates.

  36. Things may happen like in 2007, they can just make everybody current in both EB2 & EB3 for few days and pull back. But chances are very slim to none.

    Dec 2 2011, will be current sometimes in 2018 as per the calculation.
    The demand for EB2-I after Mar-2011 is madly high. With EB3 porting, things may be more worse.

    But let's hope for the best.

    1. When the dates for EB2 India comes closer to May 2010, they have to open up the inventory. So, it might happen around Oct 2015.

    1. Neither this ambal nor the other ambaal up there can answer your question without knowing the category and country of birth! Having said that I believe you are EB3-I. There are 6547 applicants before you which means Second quarter 2016 assuming no spillover and some porting.

  45. EB3-I PD 17th Nov 2003. I got a RFE email. Don't know what it is about yet. But, wanted to share that they are apparently processing cases of that PD.

    Also, should I be worried? I am working for the same Employer since 2002.

    1. Hi,

      I hope there is nothing for you to worry. I guess it should give a glimmer of hope. Actually, looking at your comment, I am getting a glimmer of hope as my PD is Dec 11, 2003.

      Please keep us posted on what that RFE is about.

      BTW, I am also like you...with the same employer for the past 14 yrs who filed for my GC. So, I am curious to see what your RFE is about.

    2. Most of the RFEs on personal side are for Birth Certificate. Keep us posted.

    3. "Glimmer of Hope"!! That was the purpose of mentioning the PD for many other who like me have lost years & opportunities in pursuit of the GC and have resigned to fate.

      Just like many others, to me your(Ambals) blog has been my support system. Thanks Again.

    1. Medicals again!!!! Looks like they have decided to squeeze out as much money as possible out of us?

    2. Hi,

      Probably good news. Dates might probably move.
      Just curious...did you change jobs after filing 485? or Did you file AC21?

  47. Hi Ambal thanks a lot for your blog's helpful info. For 2013 Fiscal year PD of EB-2I got moved for 10 months from Aug 15 2007 to Jun 15 2008. And for FY 2014 your assumption for the PD is just 01 Jan 2009 that is close to 6 and half months.Many other sites are predicting the PD to 01 Jun 2009 can you please come up with new PD that is more realistic :)
