      8. Hello to Everybody ,I found this on internet:

        Introduced in House (01/08/2015)
        Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2015
        Amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to: (1) eliminate the per country numerical limitation for employment-based immigrants, and (2) increase the per country numerical limitation for family based immigrants from 7% to 15% of the total number of family-sponsored visas

        The number (2) shows like family based will by faster?
        I'm waiting for 1-130 F1

        Thank you for your help.

      9. Any update about F2A movement

        ReplyDelete
      10. So far only 3 weeks forward for F2A. I would like to say March 2015 F2a will be June 01 2013

        ReplyDelete
      11. I have checked the annually report of FB, and here is the what I saw:
        FY2013: Total visas were issued 215,000 out of 226,000 (around unused 11,000 visas)
        FY2014: Total were 221,000 out of 226,000 (5,000 unused)
        FY2015: Why they dont add unused visas in past years to latest Fiscal Year! If that happens it will be helpful for everyone that is waiting their visas available.
        Thoughts?

        1. You are right. since uscis makes the big movements at the end of the fiscal year (around july-august-september), lots of visas are unfortunately wasted

          Delete
        2. They use unused visa after maybe may .

          Delete
        3. They use F1 unused visa very year in F2A

          Delete
      12. I don't understand why they are doing with the family applicants, especially F2A..., wait time is killing, separating families is a painful act....

        1. One year ago F2A was in Sep 2013, one year had passed after retrogession still it had not reached to the previous date...

      14. 1.5 months ... Not bad

      15. Good news for F2A, hope next month will be same forward like this month

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. Maybe More than 2 months because F1 unused visa this year in F2A .

          Delete
        2. I think the reason to move faster is to melt yearly visa before end of fiscal year. As a result, no visas would be wasted. However, the risk is; if they move so fast then stops for a while...I assume F2A has high demand for the months August-September 2013. Because last year lots of people got married or applied for F2A since dates were Current in those months.....Let's hope 1.5 months progress every month and an 8 month jum in July or August...just pray...

          Delete
        3. Yes but lot of people got interview in May 2014. So it's that no much application in those months after June. Also they put F1 unused visa to F2A

          Delete
        4. People who started interviews in May 2014 are the people who has priority date before June 2013...

          Yes F1 unused visa would help but I don't know how government do those calculations...

          Delete
        5. They apply when is no visa in F2A

          Delete
        6. Okay those guys interviewed in may 2014 and then embassies told them, sorry no visa available for you you need to wait until your pd gets current.
          So nowadays, people who got interviewed in May 2014 are getting their greencards, because their PD are may 2013

          Delete
      16. Sad news for F2A, very low movement, expecting at least 2-3 month movement

        BUBBLEBELLE JUNE 7 MARCH 25 GHANA

        MARI09 MAY 21 MARCH 25 DOM. REP.


        According to visa journey member's timeline, someone with a Priority date of June 17th has gotten an interview date for March which means visa bulletin would advance UPTO June 18th. From the pattern of visa bulletins, cut off dates are usually 01 or 08 or 15 or 22 of the that month, since it is past 15th, am only making a wild guess that it might be June 22 or July 01 2013 for March VB. By Monday or Tues we shall know for sure, but till then, these are only assumptions. Am hopeful, it would make us smile. Good luck. ​

      21. A lot of people got the interview letter before their PD become current which means the VB next month already built in the current month.
