Visa Bulletin Predictions for EB2

This post has been updated:

In October 24, 2012 meeting, Charles Oppenheim provided important insights and predictions regarding the contents of the U.S. Department of State (DOS) Visa Bulletin for fiscal year 2013 (FY13). Mr. Oppenheim is the Chief of the division within the DOS that is responsible for the visa bulletin.  

EB2 Predictions: India

Mr. Oppenheim stated that he does not expect to be able to move the current EB2 India cutoff date of September 1, 2004 forward at any time in the immediate future. However, his predictions for FY13 indicate the likelihood of limited advancement.

Mr. Oppenheim gave his most optimistic, best-case predictions for EB2 India as reaching an early 2008 cutoff date by the end of the fiscal year. FY13 ends September 30, 2013. So, there is a
chance of cutoff date advancement prior to that time.

More Information Coming Soon

There are many variables that impact the movement of cutoff dates. There is a great deal of uncertainty about some of these variables and, for that reason, predictions and forecasts are subject to revision. We will keep you posted.
