Predictions on EB-2 Priority Date Movement in FY2012 for China-mainland Born and India

Charlie Oppenheim, Chief, Immigrant Visa Control & Reporting in the State Department, provided the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) with further information on priority date movement in the EB-2 category for China-mainland born and India for the remainder of FY2012.

When the May Visa Bulletin is published, the China and India EB-2cut-off will retrogress to August 15, 2007.

Demand is still increasing at a very high rate and must be checked to maintain numbers for natives of other countries. As for projections for the remainder of the year, it is too early to predict movement.
