USCIS Visa Bulletin Predictions From March 2015 - May 2015

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

FAMILY-sponsored categories (potential monthly movement):

Worldwide dates:
  • F1: Up to three weeks
  • F2A: Three or four weeks
  • F2B: Three to six weeks
  • F3: Up to three weeks
  • F4: Two to four weeks

EMPLOYMENT-based categories (potential monthly movement):

Employment First: Current

Employment Second:
  • Worldwide: Current
  • China:        Three to six weeks
  • India:         Four to six months
Employment Third:
  • Worldwide: Rapid forward movement for at least another month or two. The rapid movement in recent months should generate a significant amount of demand for numbers. Once such demand materializes at the anticipated rate it will have a direct impact on this cut-off date. 
  • China: Rapid forward movement. Such movement is likely to result in a dramatic increase in demand which could require "corrective" action within the next six months.
  • India: Up to two weeks
  • 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 - for most countries. The expected increase in China-mainland born demand would require the establishment of a cut-off date for such applicants no later than the summer months.

The category will remain "Current" for all other countries for the foreseeable future.

Important Note:

The above projections for the Family and Employment categories indicate what is likely to happen on a monthly basis through May 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 monthly fluctuations in applicant demand and a number of other variables.

  5. F2A is the most important FAMILY-sponsored category, they should have made it current forever, How can you separate Husband and Wife.... Is this Law separating Spouses and child..... Heart breaking....frustration is killing.........., You people are not treating the Permanent Resident as Human being

  12. its really sad for F2A. no family should ever be apart.
    however in a way we are also to blame coz there are ways to help our cause such as petitions by signature to congress but unfortunately there is apathy by people and this never goes far coz people dont want to sign.

    1. Turtile? Is goes? Living in turcher? Do you mean T-O-R-T-U-R-E???? You don't even deserve to be in this country. Learn how to speak and write proper English first, then complain.

    2. We understood what he or she has to say. Do you really have to be an a$$ and start insulting people like that? We should actually throw your arrogant immigrant a$$ for acting like a turd.

      Delete
    3. Anonymous is correct. Learn to speak and write proper English. You chose to come here, so follow the rules. Why don't you go back to the real "turcher" life you enjoyed before coming here if this wait sounds so bad.
