EB-2 China Marches On

In the most recent Visa Bulletins, EB-2 China has advance by almost three years! This has been welcomed by the Chinese nationals who have waited so long to adjust status to green card holders, especially those who were effected by the EB-3 downgrade retrogression phenomena of the past year. According to Charles Oppenheim, Chief of the Visa Control and Reporting Division, U.S. Department of State, the demand for EB-2 China has been low, despite the rapid advancement. For that reason, we can expect to see EB-2 China to advance again in FY2015. A possible explanation for the low demand for EB-2 China is still the result of the past year’s downgrade phenomena. The result this year could be EB-2 China visa numbers passing through to EB-3 China. This would have a great impact in future advancement of EB China priority date because each category could see significant movement in FY2016. Unfortunately, the current method of visa reporting provides little visibility into visa upgrades and downgrades, making predictions more guesswork than science.
