Unfortunately eb3 gets all the leftover visas from the eb1 eb2 so there it is, it might take 3-4 years if not more to reach 2006 PD, I certainly hope it happens tomorrow....

Has anyone heard if Immigration Reform is going to happen this year? If it does how would it help EB3?:rolleyes:

No,you can not say that, because there is a quota for EB3 every year and they are clearing out the backlog, please do not kill the hope of EB3 people....:cool:

The backlog is clearing but moving at a very slow pace, but only hope will not help eb3I, there needs to be a group effort from eb3I category... otherwise the un documented guys will get GC before eb3I

Hey Bob,

I just clicked on the link and it is predicting that I would get GC in 2016 and with usage of spillover may be 2015. I felt smoke come out of my ears.....:confused:

May be I am being optimistic here but I think there are around 3k-4k applications ahead of me and I am hoping to get my GC by end of 2010 miraculously. :cool:

2 questions for you....1) what do you think about status of EB3 ROW and 2) HOW can UNdocumented guys can get GC?????:confused:

Well, by looking at the numbers and trend, I bet it would take a decade or more even for 6 year old filer to get his/her GC. Unless CIR happens, EB3 I is buried its head in the sand. Don't want to be pessimistic, but this is loud reality that can be seen pretty clearly. :(

The calculator needs to be updated after the latest backlog report from USCIS.

No kidding. Looky here "Result for Almond:
Your position is 5913 in the Green Card Queue based on your Country of Chargeability "Bulgaria", Priority Date "Oct-02" and Category "EB3" .
Your Expected Date of Adjudication is Nov, 2009."


November 2009. :rolleyes:

mine, I485 based on EB3 is filed on July 27 2007 and PD is Feb 2006.
I almost give up. Did anybody renew your EAD many times? How much did you totally spend in GC application? O....my..
my case I-485 EB3 is still in pending now. if I give up my case and request they return the doc to me, will immigrantion refund my $$ back? just curious?

EB3-I should land somewhere in range of Oct-Nov 01 range. Based on the data release from USCIS. EB3 Movement Tracking - Immigration Wiki (http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/index.php/EB3_Movement_Tracking)

If we compare the numbers between the Jan 30th and March 1st pdfs for EmploymentDemandUsedForCutOffDates, we can see that the number for EB3 India has gone down by only 50 (from 1050 to 1000). If the monthly quota is 2822/12 = 235 visas per month, not sure what is the logic in only handing out 50 visas in the month of Feb! Based on this logic who knows if the date really lands in Oct-Nov in April bulletin... thoughts???

I don't see any calculator in the above link. My EB3 PD is June 2003. Anyone has a guess when EB3 would reach that date ?

I am planning on filing new EB2 perm application as I lost hope on EB3 (Employer agreed). Though priority date can be ported over, with the backlogs on PERM process, it looks like it might take anywhere from 6 to 18 months for this process. Do you think moving to EB2 is a wise move ?

Is there any chance that EB3 June 2003 PD will be current before the end of this year ? Any thoughts would probably help in making a decision from my side. Thanks.

I
We see that now about 1000 visa are left prior to 2002 where in USCIS DEC data were left 1576. There are about 541 visa prior to current priority date of june 01. so now they will have to move data atleast in timeframe of oct-nov 01 to have any visas to adjudicate.

sorry.. I don't understand this calculation.. would you care to elaborate?

Barring a miracle in Sep\Oct there is absolutely no chance that Eb3 will reach June 2003. There are greater chances at end of next year but that are also very low.

Unless there is some immigration reform it will take a long time for EB3 to get to June 2003. If your employer is willing to file for EB2 and then port your EB3's priority date, I think you should go for it without a doubt in your mind. Even if somehow, by some magical calculations, your date for EB3 gets current before that, it doesn't harm your EB2 application in anyway. So there is nothing really to loose anyway...

So in the latest EB3 movement tracking EB3 Movement Tracking - Immigration Wiki (http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/index.php/EB3_Movement_Tracking) it looks like there are 1209 visas remaining till Jan 2002. Based on this update can we guess what should be the date for the next month's visa bulletin?

rams75
03-24-2010, 11:55 AM
The date for May '10 bulletin will depend on how many EB3I visas have been used so far. If you look based on the diff of EB3I pending for Dec 01 bet Aug 09 & Mar 10, it looks like only 516 visas have been issued. But this does not include any visas that may have been allocated to cases which are since pending due to some admin/other delay. And it also does not include any AOS visas that may have been issued.

So, we're missing a key number i.e. how many visas have been used so far and without this number, it's pointless trying to make a predicion.
