    3. I am not sure what your question is. Are you asking when EB3 ROW will move to a specific date? or will EB3 India (or other country) will forward in last quarter?

      Delete
  3. Do you think based on the current immigration reform or the overflow of ROW EB2 and EB1 that ROW EB3 will go past March 1, 2008 in the June bulletin? My priority date is February 15, 2008 and I've been desperately waiting for years for this to get to this point.

    1. I'd say in the next 3 bulletins, it could possibly reach July 2008. Hopefully sooner. I can understand the pain, its ridiculous to wait for so long.

  7. I hope your prediction for EB3-I is right for June 2013. My PD of Jan 7 2003 will finally be current. 10 long years after filing and 14 years after moving to the US.

  9. Do you think EB3-I will move two weeks again? Reason I asked was because it appears that there appears to be quite a few applications in the end of Dec/early Jan timeframe. Even with the spillovers applied...do you think it will still move at that pace?

    Also do you think the spillovers have already been applied to EB3I? Or do u think there's still some more the next few months?

    ReplyDelete
  10. EB spillovers will be applied in the last quarter. USCIS has not mentioned anything about FB spillover application. We expect them to apply it slowly every month.

  12. Can you please envision,when EB2 India may get CURRENT for PD in JUNE 2012?Any predictions?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. At the current rate, it could take a very long time to reach that date. Most of the H1 visas are issued to top Indian consulting firms (Tata, Cognizant, Wipro, etc). Hence demand from India applicants continues to remain high.

      In addition around 300 people are CURRENTLY porting every month from EB3 India to Eb2 India - and using ALL available quota of EB2 India. It is likely that as EB2 India dates moves ahead, the EB3 to EB2 porting rate could stay the same or increase.

      Delete
  13. I have followed EB2I 2013 predictions on your website , trackkit forums and few other sites. In all of the predictions most consistent view is that either EB2I dates will reach end of 2007 or early 2008 depending on porting and spillovers by Sep 2013.
    Assuming we have 1000 porting cases from April 13 to Sep 13 do you think dates for EB2I might reach early 2008.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We will be adding a post on how far EB2 India and other categories could go due to EB and FB spillovers in the last quarter.

      Currently the porting rate is around 300 per month or 2100 for the seven months (Apr to Sept). The unknown factors are demand in other EB1, EB4 and EB5 categories (which affects spillovers). Also the demand in EB2 India between Aug 2007 and Feb 2008 is currently unknown. Hope this gives you a little idea :)

      Delete
    2. So can we really hope that in 1-2 bulletin the EB2 India date will move from 2004 to 2007?

      Delete
    3. Yes, based on EB/FB spillovers it is certainly possible that dates for EB2 India will finally move forward.

  16. This is EXCELLENT information! Thanks a whole lot for all your hard work. Had a question about your estimations for EB3 - ROW for June 2013.

    Are these predictions:

    1. Generous?
    2. Conservative?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is between generous and conservative. We are expecting EB3ROW to move between 4 to 6 months in the June 2013 VB.

      EB3 China and EB3 Mexico would have the same cutoff date as EB3ROW in June 2013 VB.

      Delete
    2. So you are pretty certain that it will go past Feb 20, 2008 for EB3 ROW? I am considering getting the medicals done as my priority date is Feb 20, 2008. It'll be great. I am hoping it goes past Feb 20, 2008 for sure.

    3. Yeah, EB3ROW would likely move between 4-6 months in June VB. Medical would only take few days.

  23. Will the unused allocation Visa for EB1, EB2, EB4 & EB5 will go to EB3 for a particular country (like Philippines) or it will be absorbed in another country? How about the rule on per country limit, how will these affect the unused Visa allocation? Thank you so much for taking time on this one... More power to you.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The rules for EB and FB spillovers are different. I am assuming your question is only about EB spillovers.

      EB spillovers flow: EB4 + EB5 --> EB1 --> EB2 --> EB3

      If EB2 is retrogressed, all spillovers would be consumed by EB2 category.

      In case there is spillover to EB3 (which will happen only when EB2 all countries are current), then the country with the most retrogressed date would get all spillovers till its date is same as the next retrogressed country.

      In EB3, EB3 India would first get all spillovers until EB3 India date is same as EB3 Philippines. Then they would equally share the spillovers till its date reaches EB3 Mexico. Hope this helps.

    2. Thank you so much for the reply. You were right, what I meant is for EB spillovers. However, in follow up to above question and your related answers in the last two paragraphs, can you enlighten me more why PD EB3 Philippines was overtaken by China? In June 2012 VB, EB3 China PD was Aug 2005 while Philippines was May 2006. However, in May 2013 VB, China is already Dec 2007, while Philippines is Sep 2006? Why is it that Philippines EB3 did not level with China, considering the above explanations? Will the absorption of spillovers to India not in violation to per country limit?

      Can you also recommend me a Law Firm who is better to handle EB3 porting to EB2? I have a Master's Degree in Chemistry with units in PhD Chem and I am teaching in high school. I have I-140 with EB3 PD Jan 2009. With India's pending and Philippines slow movement, I am very anxious, since I have dependents who will probably turn 21, and will be out of status, if I can not get my Green Card in timely manner.

      Thanks for the help and thank you so much for your valuable time in dedicating this Blog.

    3. Q. can you enlighten me more why PD EB3 Philippines was overtaken by China
      A. Visa bulletin movements depends directly on the demand (how many people are filing I-485 application). The demand from EB3 Philippines is a LOT higher than EB3 China.

      Q. Will the absorption of spillovers to India not in violation to per country limit?
      A. The per country limit applies at initial stage only: (a) when establishing visa bulletin cutoff date and (b) spillover from FB to EB categories. Per country limit does not apply to EB spillovers.

      Q. Can you also recommend me a Law Firm who is better to handle EB3 porting to EB2?
      A. The law firm which filed your EB3 case would be a good resource to file EB2 application - since they have already reviewed your case completely. Let me know if you are still looking for another law firm.

      Q. I have I-140 with EB3 PD Jan 2009. With India's pending and Philippines slow movement, I am very anxious, since I have dependents who will probably turn 21, and will be out of status, if I can not get my Green Card in timely manner.
      A. Charles Oppenheim (from Visa Office) had predicted EB3 Philippines to move at rate of one week per month due to very high demand.

      When your PD becomes current, you can file the I-485 application. The current processing time for I-485 is between 4-8 months.

  33. Good afternoon everyone! My PD is March 5th, 2008 - EB3 ROW (Canada). I hope the predictions above are accurate. Apart from the i-485 processing times (4-7 months) do I need to be concerned with the 7% allocation per country after my priority date becomes current? i.e. Does the ROW per country demand influence GC availability beyond the basic category dates? For how long will EAD be issued initially?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 7% allocation would not apply during I-485 processing. It is used to establish visa bulletin cutoff date.

      EAD is typically issued for either 1 or 2 years.

    My PD is Jul 28, 2008 EB3 ROW. My I-140 was done a couple of years ago. My questions are:
    1- When do you think my date will become current?
    2- Once my 485 is filed (Texas is my service center) how long would it take for me to get my AP and EAD and also how my time from filing of my 485 will it be get my green card?
    3- Do you expect that the PD will continue to move forward and retrogress once my PD (July 28 '08) becomes current and 485 is filed?
    4- Once I have my EAD... could I switch my jobs or would I have to wait until I have my my actual green card before switching over.

    Thank you so much Amazon!!

  44. Hi again,

    So as I will be out of the country all of June returning on Jul 11th. If my date becomes current as you said above in July VB (which I am assuming comes out after the 10th of June??).. and I come back on the 11 July have all my paperwork ready to file..I hope the date for the month stays current at least until the end of that month. So in my case if I filed on the 12th..and by chance the date retrogresses in Aug VB. Would my application be accepted as long as I filed it before Jul 31st?
    Thank you so much - you are very generous with your time.

    Cheers,
    Paulo.

    Replies
    1. Hi Paulo, That is right. If the PD becomes current in July VB, you can file anytime between July 1 and July 31.

      If PD is still current in Aug VB, then you can also file anytime in August. If dates retrogress in August, they would still accept your application if they received it before August 1.

    1. Visa allocation is supply and demand. The supply is fixed at 140,000 per year (for all EB categories). The demand however is not fixed and changes daily.

      We are waiting for updated data from Visa Office. This will give an accurate demand. The current I-485 pending inventory is around 4 months old and only include demand till Aug 2007 for EB3 ROW (since dates did not move beyond that).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There are many factors which affects visa bulletin movement. Currently the porting from EB3 India to EB2 is consuming the annual quota for EB2 India. The only way EB2 India can move is due to spillovers from EB and FB categories.

      Since demand changes every month in all categories (EB and FB), it directly affects the amount of spillover available. Hence we cannot estimate the movement that far.

    1. May be next year 2014 around March. You should be current.

    2. It is currently hard to give an estimate on that date. Due to heavy porting from EB3, dates may not continue to move forward every month.

      This is also evident from current EB2 India dates (which has not moved since last May).

      It should move forward in the last quarter of FY (July - Sept).

    2. Thank you for the kind words.

      RFE can be issued anytime during I-485 processing. It really depends on the officer reviewing the case. Sometimes what is acceptable to one officer may not be acceptable to another officer.

      I am guessing you had already filed I-485 application few years ago. This article may also help:

    3. 1. You can continue to be with your employer till H1 is valid.

      2. You can switch employer and start process again. You can retain your earlier PD if I-140 is approved.

      3. If you are with current employer and PD is current: If I-140 is approved, you can file I-485 yourself. Please see this article and comments in it:
