March 2015 Visa Bulletin and Analysis


March 2015 Visa Bulletin was released earlier today. 

EB2:

Date for EB2 India moved from 01 SEP 05 to 01 JAN 07. EB2 China moved from 15 MAR 10 to 01 SEP 10. The cut-off for all other EB2 countries are Current.

Good News is that EB2 India have started moving earlier than expected and it is moving fast. Another, good news is EB2 China is moving forward.

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 moved from 22 DEC 03 to 01 JAN 04. EB3 China moved from 01 SEP 11 to 22 OCT 11. For all other countries the date moved from 01 JAN 14 to 01 JUN 14.

Good news is the dates for all the countries have moved.

I-485 Pending inventory:

I-485 pending inventory data was also released earlier today.

Current I-485 inventory shows, For EB2 India, there are 21,082 pending applications, whose priority is before 01 MAY 2010. This number was 20,263 in the previous edition. For EB3 India, it is 27,472  applicants before 01 SEPT 2007 Priority date. It was 29,422 in previous edition.

What to Expect Next Few Months:

For EB3 India:
I am hoping it will move 2 weeks every Visa Bulletin, at the very least one week.

For EB2 India:
I expected the dates to stay the same till June. But, DOS is using a different strategy this time. They have moved a little in Feb Bulletin and they moved more than an year in Mar Bulletin. I am hoping they keep the forward movement trend.

  1. I think by September, EB2 will be Dec 2010 or Feb 2011

    1. I485 pending inventory is just out .. There are around 21,000 people waiting as of May 2010. Do you still think Dec 2010 is possible ??

      My bet on this is Sep - Oct 2009.

      Delete
    2. I am sorry but there is no way date is moving to 2010. The strategy this time around is to get interfilers moved across and reducing the backlog in EB3. You will also see a lot of porting between EB3 to EB2 and thus increasing the inventory of applicants. at best, it might move until end of 2009 or early 2010.

    3. NC: How did your calculation work out to Dec/2010 or Feb/2011 for EB2-India? Please elaborate.
      Thanks.

  2. Sorry if this question was asked before but has the demand for EB2 after 2010 increased a lot as compared to its demand between 2005-2007?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, demand for EB2 has gone up and the average wait times have also gone up. Whereas it was 4-5 year wait prior, 6-7 year wait time is becoming the norm.

    1. This, to me, is already an agenda under Mr. President's immigration reform .. The petition is to get it done this year ??

      Do we know for certain this is not happening this year ?

      One should refrain from creating petitions that are already a part of the agenda. We still don't know for sure that the proposed rule will not by implemented in 2015.

      Little patience would help !!

      Yesterday's judge order will halt implementation of "Expandded" DACA program and "DAPA" program for undocumented parents of U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents. It does not cover implementation of the initial DACA program which was initiated in June 2008. Accordingly, current DACA Dreamers are not affected by this injunction for their extension of DACA benefits. Besides, the injunction does not cover any programs of fixing "legal immigration system," particularly employment-based immigration system in the Obama's immigration actions of November 2014.

Note that your H1B spouse must either (a) have an approved I-140, or (b) have extended H1B status beyond six years based on the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act (AC21) (i.e. Extended beyond six years based on a PERM labor certification or I-140 pending for at least 365 days).

  30. My Prediction for next month visa bulletin April 2015 India EB2 would be : March 2007 and EB3 would be : July 2004.
    Thanks No discussion required.. Remember my Prediction. I am not immigration lawyer but I am waiting since long time for EB & couple of time I predicted with friends those are accurate or around but not false. (if I predict for month of March 2007 EB2 maybe it will move possible April 2007 or Feb 2007 but it will not going to jump Year 2009 or year 2010). go back and look year 2007 how they worked in past..

    2. Is your prediction based on any logic ? Or, just picked a random month and year that came to your mind ?

    3. Not Random, check Visa Bulleting and find Year by year, see missing months for those categories.. that's the backlog, check last bulletins why they worked back for EB2 EB3 which are current on those years like 2003 etc but if you see year 2003 and 2004 some months were not current. I calculated and made excel sheet work found what I mentioned top. I am not astrologer but I am an Indian waiting for EB3 GC since long time. so lets see that would be around months I mentioned and year will be same what I mentioned... keep your eyes on it.. trust me that would be no move what you mentioned ..

  33. EB3 India, priority date 2/14/2003. Came in 1999 on F1. Priority date became current in Aug. 2013. 18 months and still no movement. Finger printed 7 times.

  43. FInally, the H4 EAD rule will be effective from May 26th 2015

  44. I recently changed my employer, but I have I-140 approved, you think I can still apply this EAD for my wife? Your response will be appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have same question.Here is what the response to comments in the rule says

      Fewer than a dozen commenters requested that DHS extend employment
      authorization to H-4 dependent spouses in cases where the H-1B nonimmigrants have
      transferred their employment to a new employer and are in the process of obtaining
      approval of a new Form I-140 petition. As noted above, however, authorizing
      employment based solely on the filing (rather than the approval) of a PERM application
      or Form I-140 petition is likely to encourage frivolous filings to allow the H-4 dependent
      spouse to obtain employment authorization while the filings remain pending. DHS thus
      is not extending this rule on the basis of pending PERM applications or Form I-140
      petitions. By requiring that a Form I-140 petition first be approved, DHS will further
      disincentivize frivolous filings and better serve the goal of extending the immigration
      benefit of this rule to only those spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants who are genuinely on
      the path to lawful permanent residence

      If I understand that right, it would mean NO, which is very disappointing! Any thoughts?

    2. I would like to add that If H1B is beyond year 6 then H4 EAD possible (this is the AC21 clause) otherwise based on what I posted previously it does not look possible

  59. Request to all EB3-India guys to start porting to EB2-India asap.
    Apply on premium and port.

    Do as much porting as possible to get GC.
    Eb2-India may never move .......

    2. You didn't get the sarcasm of this post, What He or She trying to say is because they have a long wait to get GC or even EAD, He would like to make EB2 People also suffer.. That is why is requesting all EB3's to get converted to EB2 so that they can clog the pipeline ... These kind of mindset should be sent back...

    2. Talk to some EB3 guys, they must be knowing.

    3. You will be probably getting EAD by this year end but GC has to wait... Do not always listen to others, some people will really give you pessimistic dates/timeframes.. Do some math and you will be ok...

    1. I agree, what's the point if EB2 has to wait for 7-10 years.

      Delete
    2. I agree too, USCIS Should put a limit on porting. They should open only certain limit for every year. Otherwise EB2 and EB3 Will become same and go in Parallel in the future. No value for Advance Degree Professionals.

    3. Just to be very clear, I am in EB2 and i would like to know why you think so... The very first mistake is in the System, first of all if GC has been given in Country Cap Basis per year then H1B should be given same way... You can not really blame people if system is giving them power to switch after few years to EB2 if they qualify, This is fairness.. And Mr., if you were in their shoes you would have done the same. Rather than bullying people you should ask questions to change the system, like remove country quota or EB2 to EB1. Disgusting Thought Process...

  63. I am a physician and have a masters degree as well and waiting(of course frustrated) with a 2009 priority date as all the EB2 visas are consumed by Desi's with some kind of '3 year IT degrees' and some how become exceptional and able to upgrade using idiotic immigration. I wish there is some different GC category for IT workers so that others are not collateral damage.

    1. I am totally with you my friend!!... I am in the same boat here (2 master degrees - NON IT Thank GOD!! - 2009 PD EB2 with multiple research papers and what not!!) and I know so many highly qualified master degree/PHD holders who even didn't get picked in the H1B lottery. I feel lucky that I somehow got saved on that!!!... Thanks to TCS, Infosys etc and then they pay millions to cover up the Visa Fraud they do all the time. Same with the shitty consultants, who claim that they can make you IT professionals with H1b visa with any background and 6 weeks training!!!.

      And then they cry that the immigration system is at fault when majority of the desi IT people take the advantage of the same system and do countless frauds!!... Hopefully our wait will be over this year but yeah, something needs to be done.

    2. Thanks to the an Indian Tech company my sister got her GC in EB1 category(No masters, No reserach, Just L1 Managerial) in less than 6 months and I am waiting > 6 years. EB1 and EB2 visas are misused abused by Indian Tech Companies and professional with qualification that would barely meet the exceptional criteria.
