EB-2 Worldwide Advancement and Its Dramatic Effect on EB-2 India

Unexpectedly, EB-2 Worldwide has more than doubled over the past few months, according to Charles Oppenheim, Chief of the Visa Control and Reporting Division, U.S. Department of State. Due to the dramatic increase in demand for employment-based visa numbers from countries other than India, China, Mexico and the Philippines, EB-2 India in not expected to advance in July and it may remain stagnant through the remainder of the fiscal year. The reason EB-2 India is effected while EB-2 China is not is due to the advancement of EB-2 India in the beginning of 2015. From February to May, we saw EB-2 India advance by more than 3 years. Now EB-2 India can expect to hold steady until the impact of EB-3 India upgrades can be assessed. With any luck, Mr. Oppenheim will not have to adjust the priority dates for EB-2 India through retrogression as he did last year….
