June Visa Bulletin Shows Significant Advances in EB-2 for China, India; All EB-3 Categories
June Visa Bulletin. The current level of demand in many of the employment-based visa categories has been much lower than anticipated. As a result, the Department of State’s Visa Office has advanced the June cut-off dates significantly in an effort to maximize number use under the annual numerical limits. The Department said that additional advances during the coming months are likely.
The Department noted that such cut-off date movements should allow for action to be finalized on a significant number of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services adjustment of status cases. Once that level of demand begins to exceed the supply of available numbers, it will be necessary to make adjustments to the cut-off dates, and retrogressions are possible.
