Default My PD is Mar 6th, but Next Bulletine is Mar 1st... Any Hopes under VISA GROUPING?

Hi All

I am not sure how VISA Grants (GC Approvals) works, but My PD is Mar 6th, as per today's bulletin update its 1st MAR?

As per the Operation of the Numerical Control Process (PDF) at Visa Bulletin with Grouping Logic my dates should be correct.

The information reads as -- The cut-off dates are the 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd of a month, since VO groups demand for numbers under these dates. (Priority dates of the first through seventh of a month are grouped under the 1st, the eighth through the fourteenth under the 8th, etc.) --

Do I have any hopes?

Any help is appreciated...

JainGC,

What exactly is your question about? Are you asking whether you are current from next month as per August bulletin or how soon you will be current?

Theoretically, you should be considered as Current in August and expect to be approved as per the logic you have mentioned, which I have referred in another posting of mine. However, many people think otherwise as you can see from notes by various postings here. Therefore, if you happen to get GC in August, let everyone know so that we will at least know what the USCIS/DOS practice is. USCIS practice is often wrong which we all know. They can approve someone who is not even current, whereas others will be waiting with all clearances and current dates. So, keep your fingers crossed and pray that they do it right.

jainGC,

Your PD is NOT current for per the Aug 2010 visa bulletin. Accept this fact.

I am not a lawyer but I do comprehend English and the grouping logic. How the VO groups the visa numbers on the 1, 8 etc. is totally unrelated to the fact that only all PD's prior to the published date are current. Is that clear ?

Default Pd

If your PD is current doesn't mean you get the approval in that month. Only a chance. At least your PD must be current for 3 months, you will get GC (90% chance).
When people start calling from the first month, they don't entertain it. If your PD is current more than 1 month, you have a valid point to complain.
