NewsFlash! Aug 2013 Visa Bulletin: EB2 India Moves & FB2A is Current

The U.S. Department of State (DOS) Visa Bulletin for August 2013, as predicated, contains significant advancement in the cutoff date in the employment-based, second preference (EB2) category for India. The EB2 India cutoff date, effective during August 2013, advances to January 1, 2008.

The family-based, second preference “A” (FB2A) category for spouses and children of lawful permanent residents (LPRs or “green card” holders), becomes current throughout the category in August. This, too, is consistent with previous DOS projections.

More information and analyses of the implications of these changes is available on MurthyDotCom. The Murthy Law Firm will continue to provide timely updates to our readers on visa bulletin developments.
