Update: There is a possibility of big movement in EB3 China category.

If you have not done it, please remember to add or update your I-130/NVC/I-140/I-485 case in the GC tracker: http://www.mygcvisa.com/ tracker/

It would be very useful to understand how USCIS is currently processing cases. It would also help in estimating date movements in future VB.

We will update this table as we get more data. If you are interested, the dates above are based on following data:
  • Latest I-130/I-140/I-485 Processing Statistics (see link on right side) -->

Similar to EB3 category movement, we have added a blog post for EB2 category forward movement. Please click here for FB category.

Next Steps: If priority date is current and

1. If applicant is inside US, they will have to file I-485: http://blog.mygcvisa.com/2013/04/how-to-file-i-485-application.html

  4. Hi Amazon,
    on trackitt.com many people with PD until Oct 2009 are posting that they are receiving RFE's for their I-485. By any chance, does that mean there is a possibility of moving dates to until Oct 2009?

    1. You need to provide some more information to be able to answer your question. To start, what category and country of changeability are you in with a October 1, 2013 priority date, what visa do you currently hold, are you a derivative beneficiary of someone else's (e.g. parent's) immigration process (e.g a son or daughter)? Once you post answers to these questions, plus any other relevant details, then it may be possible to provide you an answer, or at least some guidance. Remember for an authoritative answer you need to consult with a qualified, experienced immigration attorney, and not rely on an Internet forum.

  6. Would appreciate your inputs...

    My PD is EB2I Oct 8, 2008, Pending 485, no EAD/AP

    Will I be current in aug? If so how much time does USICS really need to approve? In other words how long should my date hold its place for me to get approved? I got an rfe, still waiting for mail to find out what is it for.

    I will be in India in aug. If my aos gets approved when I am away, will I have an issue coming back in H1 (I have no EAD/AP)

  10. Hi Amazon, our PD is March 2009 and we're already preparing our requirements. As soon as we've completed them, can we turn them in in advanced instead of waiting for August? Thanks for keeping us posted

    1. What is your country and category?Are you current in july? If yes, why wait for august? If you are current in a certain month and uscis will receive your application before the first day of that month, your application will be rejected, that is as far as I know.

    2. My country is Philippines under category H1B ( teacher)and my priority date is march 20, 2009. Also, can we apply for I485 on our own, or do the employer and our lawyer should still comunicate about our application.

    4. You can file I-485 on your own if you're sure you know all what you're doing in filing and you still need a verification of employment from your employer. You can turn in you application to the uscis earlier than the first day of the month in which you are current but it will be rejected or eventually will get rejected.

    My priority date is 29 Nov 2012 for EB2 India category. Since your predictions have been very close to the real movement of dates, can you provide a best guess estimate for how many more months/years I would have to wait from June 2014 before my priority date becomes current. Thanks.
