Since nobody attempted to answer your question, let me give a try.

The answer depends on what is the EB3-PD ? If someone (like me) had a PD of 2001 , then it would have become current more than a couple of times. Just in the last two years my PD became current thrice (including July Fiasco), and am still waiting for my approval.

But if you are asking how many times did EVERYONE became current, then possibly only once (The July '07 fiasco). I can tell this for sure since 2000. I am not aware of any info before that year.

I heard that once every 5 years every category becomes current. I think in 2000 or 2001, Every category became current, I am not sure.

For a long time, between 2001 to late 2004, All PDs (EB1-EB5) were current. Main reason for this was, labor certification used to take 2-4 years during that time. If you do not have labor certification coming out, you always have visa numbers available. Just when PERM hit, retrogression came in to the picture.

Hey found this archive of visa bulletins, if you go through one by one, then that should answer your question.


http://travel.state.gov/visa/frvi/bulletin/bulletin_1770.html

(From April 2002 to Nov 2008)

And then for still older ones,
(1995 to 2001)

Are you trying to look for a pattern to find out when it will be current again ?

After july fiasco, uscis and dol are very very cautious, in opening up the gates and calling everyone current. (They dont want another 1-2 million applications being sent).

It is defintely not going to happen in the near future.....

So even finding a pattern may not help as its not going to be current for all for EB3 atleast.

I don't think it will become current for atleast couple of years.
