India Second Preference Cut-Off Date Retrogresses
The Department of State announced that, for January, it has been necessary to retrogress the India employment second preference cut-off date because of continued heavy applicant demand for numbers by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for adjustment of status cases. The Department said it is likely that the annual limit for this category will be reached within the next few months, at which time the category would become “unavailable” for the remainder of fiscal year 2008.
The January 2008 Visa Bulletin is available at the DOS Website.
