USCIS Visa Bulletin Predictions From December 2014 - February 2015

For February 2015 Visa Bulletin prediction, please click here: http://blog.mygcvisa.com/2014/12/february-2015-visa-bulletin-predictions.html

Department of State have posted their visa bulletin prediction for the next few months:

FAMILY-sponsored categories:

Worldwide dates:
  • F1:   Two to three weeks
  • F2A: Three to five weeks
  • F2B: Six to eight weeks
  • F3:   One to three weeks
  • F4:   Two or four weeks

EMPLOYMENT-based categories:

Employment First: Current

Employment Second:
  • Worldwide: Current
  • China: Three to five weeks
  • India: No forward movement

Employment Third:
  • Worldwide: Continued rapid forward movement for the next several months. After such rapid advance of the cut-off date applicant demand for number use, particularly for adjustment of status cases, is expected to increase significantly. Once such demand begins to materialize at a greater rate it will impact this cut-off date situation. 
  • China: Rapid forward movement. Such movement is likely to result in increased demand which may require "corrective" action possibly as early as February.
  • India: Little if any movement
  • Mexico: Will remain at the worldwide date
  • Philippines: Will remain at the worldwide date. Increased demand may require "corrective" action at some point later in the fiscal year. 

Employment Fourth: Current

Employment Fifth: Current

The above projections for the Family and Employment categories indicate what is likely to happen during each of the next three months based on current applicant demand patterns.

Readers should never assume that recent trends in cut-off date movements are guaranteed for the future, or that "corrective" action will not be required at some point in an effort to maintain number use within the applicable annual limits.

The determination of the actual monthly cut-off dates is subject to fluctuations in applicant demand and a number of other variables.

    1. Based on November bulletin, F2A is at March 1st, 2013.

      By current predictions is could 'possibly' move 5 weeks forward each month for the next 3 months.

      That means that is MIGHT move anywhere from 9 weeks forward to 15 weeks forward by the end of February 2015

    3. I have a q- my priority date is nov 2012. I was thinking of getting medical apt done on 11 nov as by then visa bulletin wil be released and hoping that it will move by 6 months so that my date becomes current . Do you think it makes sense becuase If it does become current then I will have it ready to send out to the lawyer ASAP. Else I'll change it to dec 12 if date doesn't become current. I didn't understand what you mean by end of process. Can u explain .. Don't u need medical for i485 submission.

    2. Immigration attorneys themselves will tell you that there is no way of telling how long a visa retrogression will take so please stop providing inconclusive and incorrect information giving people false hope. If you use the link where it says "to estimate when priority date can be current" even that CAN'T be trusted because we have NO CONTROL over what the NVC does. Please stop giving FALSE INFORMATION. Get informed then provide feedback.

      Thank you from all of us who are truly desperate but DO NOT want to get further confused.

    2. are you sure? The cut-off date is June 2012 right now. It is going to take 5-6 years for a Jan 2013 PD to become current for EB3-ROW (rest of world)?

      Delete
    3. No it won't take 5-6 years. I think the person who responded earlier probably didn't read eb3 row. I would say date wil become current in next few months- atleast that's what It seems from predictions. And by the time u get GC it wil 4-6months after that.
