Bad News For EB-2 India

According to Charles Oppenheim, Chief of the Visa Control and Reporting Division, U.S. Department of State, EB-2 India is unlikely to advance much more through the remained for FY2015. Earlier in the year, it was expected that EB-2 India would advance to the beginning of 2009, at the very least, and more likely to July or August of 2009. Due to an explosion in demand for EB-2 Worldwide, however, EB-2 India is expected to stagnate through the remainder of the year. In fact, EB-2 Worldwide has reached historic demand, with an increase by 80% in February to March and by more than 100% in April as compared to February. Under the current system of visa reporting, the Visa Office had no advance notice that EB-2 Worldwide demand would materialize, or whether it would be sustained. Nonetheless, the demand for EB-2 Worldwide created shortages of visa availability in other categories, which spells bad news for EB-2 India for the remainder of FY2015.
