NewsFlash! DOS Issues EB2 Cutoff Projections

The Department of State (DOS) advised today that the EB2 India and China category is likely to retrogress in the May or June 2012 Visa Bulletin. Charles Oppenheim, Chief, Visa Control and Reporting, provided this information at an AILA conference on March 16, 2012. Mr. Oppenheim projected that it will become necessary to retrogress the EB2 date back to approximately August 2007.

The EB2 cutoff set in the April 2012 Visa Bulletin, which is May 1, 2010, is not changed by Mr. Oppenheim’s announcement. The changes will occur in the May and/or June Visa Bulletins. We will provide further analysis in an upcoming MurthyBulletin article.
