Visa Bulletin For June 2016. EB2-EB3 India-The Never Ending Voyage.

Visa Bulletin For June 2016. EB2-EB3 India-The Never Ending Voyage.

With the Number of new Green card filings for EB2 India increasing Year on Year  , EB2 India tends to  take the path of EB3 India. Economy is back on track with huge demand for H1B visa , the job market is bubbling with new tech workers eagerly awaiting to apply for green card. Talent pool filing for EB1 and EB2 has increased than ever before causing Spillover numbers to EB2 India to be reduced year on year. This will push EB2 India to an ever ending wait period just like EB3 India. USCIS expects to move EB2 India at  a very slow pace i.e a movement of couple of weeks .And not to forget the employees who are awaiting  on EB3 India are getting upgraded to EB2 India.

There is very less possibility of  any new immigration reform as we enter the election years. And the hope  for EAD for I140 Rule  is still awaiting to be approved and also does not contain any major reform like providing  EAD for all H1B workers who have applied for Green card, rather has a clause of compelling circumstances been added to it. But if this rule is published as is then  An employee  on H1B who has filed for Green card and has I140 approved for more than an year can remain in US for ever on H1B , as the I-140 petition cannot be revoked.

RETROGRESSION NEWS:

 

FAMILY-SPONSORED:

CHINA F4:  The increased level of applicant demand being received has necessitated retrogression of the June final action date, in an effort to hold number use within the overall China Family-sponsored annual limit. At this time, it is not possible to predict whether this date will advance prior to the end of the fiscal year.

INDIA F4:  The increased level of applicant demand being received has necessitated retrogression of the June final action date, in an effort to hold number use within the overall India Family-sponsored annual limit. This date is not expected to advance prior to the end of the fiscal year.


EMPLOYMENT-BASED:

INDIA E2:  During the past two months, there have been extremely high levels of Employment-based demand for adjustment of status cases filed with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.  This has necessitated retrogression of the Second preference final action date for the month of June in an effort to hold number use within the FY-2016 annual limit. This date is expected to advance slowly during the last three months of the fiscal year, at a pace consistent with that of the India Employment-based Third preference date.

CHINA E2 and E3:  During the past two months, there have been extremely high levels of Employment-based demand for adjustment of status cases filed with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.  This has necessitated retrogression of both the Second and Third preference final action dates for the month of June in an effort to hold number use within those FY-2016 annual limits. Neither of these dates is expected to advance prior to the end of the fiscal year.
