@gcgonewild: I like your signature line -- 485 : Won't live to apply :)

Seriously, I think EB2-I 2008 will get current by July 2011. Thsi is from seeing the past history of EB2-I movement as well as current economic turmoil (low EB applications during 2009/2010)

Very helful post. Also, my guess is that
May 2010 visa bulletin would be coming sometime between April 01 and April 10
June 2010 visa bulletin would be coming sometime between May 01 and May 10
July 2010 visa bulletin would be coming sometime between June 01 and June 10

Stop waiting for Visa Bulletin like a newly married wife of soldier in war. Your husband (Visa Bulletin) would come every month to sleep with you... All night long.

It is the Demand Data Used in the Determination
of the April 2010 Employment Preference Cut-Off Dates.

Find below the thread.

A couple users by the -ve ratings comment believed I have hijacked this thread. Sorry, I did'nt mean to. The link had data appropriate for the April visa bulletin that this thread was discussing, hence i put it in here, no offence.

Thanks.

Just to extend this on fun side: may be USCIS is also planning to open "Donor Only" links where paid members can see the bulletins sooner and others are promised that they will get information later but most of the time not published :)

lol...just kidding....everyone is so eagerly waiting for the BULLET in....me too...

but at the same time...best case scenario....even if it is current....it still depends on your luck....you are lucky then u will stop visiting all the immigration forums so often....
and then if you are unluckly then you will hang on to the dear forums....

I will have to definately out this (my dedication to this forum) in my year end performance review at work...

on a different note...if the USCIS website puts google ads on thier website...they will get so much revenue...then they will not make us wait so long...no more bakras needed to pay for H1 / EAD / AP renewal.....(as they will have better source of revenue)

I was looking into visa spillover. EB2 has around 55000 cases pending, within 2 years EB2 should be current, then the spill over from EB4/5 to EB1 to EB2 to EB3 will be massive, most of the EB3 folks should get their green cards in 3 to 4 years. What do you guys think.

sledge_hammer
03-11-2010, 07:33 AM
The documents explains that "fall down/up" of visa numbers, or in our words, "spill over" can happen in both directions but only within the chargeability category. Unless I am not understanding it right, for 2010 there can be a maximum of 2,987 * 2 = 5,974 visas available for E2. But we also know that about 10,256 visas were pending for CY 2005 (see the other inventory PDF available somewhere on IV).

So 10,256-5,944=4,312 applications witha PD in 2005 will NOT get a visa number and will have to wait for the next year.

This process will repeat.

Can you explain how E2 India will become current in 2 years?

ok. you are saying the spill over will happen with chargeability category. Let's say the total EB2 visas for the year 2010 is 40K, if row is current(used up 10k), then the left over 30k won't it spill over to other countries(which in this case INDIA and CHINA) EB2 categories. Is that not how it happens.

We are half way through 11th and still the VB is not out that really is making me optimistic. Usually copy paste bulletiens are out before 10th. Since April is start of third quarter perhaps they want to do a half yearly review of demand and adjust spillover. Just a hope but is really making me excited.

Call me the doubter - but as more time passes, my suspicion grows that they just dont care for us hence they just release the bulletin whenever they feel like. to me it feels like someone might have been on vacation or might have had a hot date which led them to miss days of work (thinking of other things instead) which is in turn leading to delay. i dont feel they put so much thought into this whole thing... its just process and i dont think the process changes (or is delayed) due to things becoming better or worse... again: call me the doubter.

Although, it was freaky at that time (june 07 being 3 Qtr of FY), USCIS did apply spill over in the 3-Qtr of 2007. Remember, official statement of USCIS on VB fiasco on 2nd of July 2007. ~60,000 visas available were made available (during June 07) as they said they had as many approvable (pre-adjudicated) petitions. Guys, keep your hopes high- there may be a repeat of 07 as majority of AOS petitions are pre-adjudicated now....

I agree. There are about 450 "guests" viewing this thread. Creating a member account takes only 2 minutes (its anonymous for those worried about privacy). And once a member, you will probably be more involved (if not in donating, then in posting and helping the discussion on the threads). Another side advantage - IV will have a better understanding of the number of pending applicants out there.

Disclaimer: I was a longtime lurker (I prefer that word to "guest") too and realized its better to be involved a little more. Don't make the same mistake. :o

Guys in software(in case there are any such professionals :)) how can I get this real simple VB checker.
All I want to see is that it checks travel***.gov VB page and tells me as soon as VB link is posted.

Any ideas on a real simple way to do this? (I cant code so looking for a ready freeware :))

you can easily do it in firefox. there is a plugin for firefox which keeps on refreshing the page every few seconds. If the page chages then it tells you what changed.

Whats your point?

Does list server works on getting relief the EB mess we are in? or does it even lets you vent our your frustration.

I was responding to an earlier post (quoted in my post) where someone was asking for a script to check the visa bulletin page and notify him when it was updated. I just wanted him to know that it was unnecessary since there is an email distribution list that will notify all its subscribers when a new bulletin is out and there is no need to constantly refresh the visa bulletin page in your browser. I thought my point was quite clear.

If you want the news now.....Pay the money I say.....mind it.

One of the donor member got the info

"The update from Donor Forum is that IV spoke to their contact at USCIS/DOS - they informed IV that a text of a minor portion of the bulletin is being finalized as we speak and they expect to complete that and release the bulletin sometime this afternoon..."

You make it sound like IV is ripping people off. You are grossly mistaken - if that is your implication. This is a volunteer, non-profit organization with the blood and sweat of many members paying for the forums, representation, and lobbying that we have come to take for granted, not to mention all the unpaid hours for the Core that keeps this site running. Please apologize to IV if you have the heart to do so.

Also, IV/Pappu has made it clear that donors have first/preferred access to any news or information that they gain. They will eventually release it to all non-paying members - you just have to wait. Not such a bad thing.

Can someone kindly confirm (or provide a pointer) what the rule for flow of unused numbers is? Is it: First flow horizontally to other countries but same EB level, and then flow downwards equally to all countries?
If so, then it does seem like EB2-I should advance significantly this year, given that there are ~85K visa numbers available worldwide for EB1 + EB2, and combined EB1 + EB2 pending cases is only about 55K

thanks,

Thanks for the update! Looks like no movement for EB2-I, and some movement (July->Sep 01) for EB-3. So much for all the excitement about the april bulletin!

Move on guys...nothing to see here!

it is sad to see such irresponsible comment here, i understand this is your frustration speaking, but direct it towards bringing the change from non-responsive system not against the very organization that is working tirelessly to address our issues.
I donít want to go about asking your contribution and/or efforts so far to this cause , however I would like to add if you cant contribute in a positive way its ok, atleast donít spew negativity

Now IV is trying to make money on the behest of delayed visa bulletin. this is what their Donor only link meant for.

We do this every time since july fiasco. At least a week of speculation, pundits predictions, vending frustration and fighting - Only to know that we are not getting anywhere, regardless of EB category and country of origin. Why do we expect a different result if we are doing the same thing over and over again.

Let us do something about it.
Let us make sure that we meet our elected officials individually before the end of the month. Explain our situation and how we can make difference in the community if we can get out of this mess - Staring a small business, buying a house, reducing overseas investment etc. to name few.

Scheduling a meeting and couple of hours of our time can make a big difference. Remember, it is the inaction of the majority that allow bad things to happen - not the action of few.

I just came across information regarding the visa bulletin delay.

There is a change being made to the structure and organization of Immigration related Govt Departments.

USCIS and DOS Visa Office are being merged together to make a super organization called the

USCIPS "United States Citizenship and Immigration Prevention Services"
good sense of humor

People will never realise this. We can blame Iv, or fight among oursleves like consulting or non consulting, eb2 vs eb3 , Indians vs ROW, software vs non software etc.... not realising that there is very heavy opposition from the other side.

Restrictions will be applied in all possible ways because of the way economy is going.

President's message is clear "Study and do ur math or else someone from India or China will come and take your job" - there have been a lot of references to how America must rely on its own talent and not import from outside.

This clearly shows that employment based applicants will be the soft target.

Unless the community realises and wakes up from slumber and stops infighting and blaming websites and organizations and realizes whats really cooking, things will not change and will only get worse.

H1b memo was the tip of the iceberg - just see how much more restrictions will follow if nothing is done from our side.
