December 2013 Demand Data

Update: Department of State (DOS) did not publish the December 2013 Demand Data. This is not unusual when there is large (forward or retrogression) movement in dates.

Demand data is used by DOS to calculate the monthly visa bulletin dates. If you are not familiar with demand data, please see this article: What is Demand Data?

There should not be any major changes in the December 2013 Demand Data.

EB2 India: EB2 India is expected to retrogress by more than three years in December VB. The porting from EB3 India is using up all available quota available to EB2 India (which is around 2,802 visas per year). Please see article.

Hopefully DOS decides to break down demand in EB2 categories from 2004 to 2013. Currently it only shows cumulative data prior to 2009.

EB3 ROW: The demand in EB3 ROW and Mexico is much lower. This will likely result in these two categories by move forward by 8-12 months. It should also continue to move forward by few months.

Update: USCIS has recently released the latest I-485 pending inventory. The data is more than 30 days old.

Tip: You can use the Find Hidden Visa Bulletin tool to locate the December 2013 Visa Bulletin before it is released to general public.

  3. Hi Amazon!
    Considering that NOV 10 falls on sunday, do you think they will publish DEC VB this friday (NOV 8)? Or they will do so next week on Monday?

    Also, and more importantly how many weeks after sending all the documents to USCIS do they schedule the Finger Prints for? Assuming someone send everything by DEC 10 when (aprox) should the FP appointment is set for?
