Default Someone should contact them

Here's the info. on their website:

If you have additional questions about cut-off dates and your case is being processed at the U.S. Consulate General in Mumbai, please e-mail us or call us at +91-22-2363-7407 between 2 and 4 p.m. IST.

If someone is in Mumbai/India should call the number listed above to check if this is really true as the US Version might take a couple more days to be out.

The floodgates have been opened - I guess it is good news for many. The next step would be rapid movement for EB3 (from spillovers) ....I guess lot of lawyers and doctors will be happy too ..btw, it seems that the bulletin is genuine

On what are you basing the genuiness of this. Mumbai Consulate made a mistake in June 2010 visa bulletin when they made EB2 India current. They changed it within a day. Could be a repeat of the same thing. Until we see the official website come out with the same official version, nobody should get their hopes up.

I'm saying this, even though I and a lot of others will be helped if this is true.

Default Sent an email

Most probably a typo, though I wish it's not. Just sent an email to Mumbai Consulate. Let's see what they have to say.

---- If only they treat it like a price mistake and honor it

Default RELAX , keep emotions in check

If something is too good to be true , it is probably not true . Same applies here as well . I would not go through a roller coaster of emotions like we went last time when we predicted the June 2010 Spillover . Keep your emotions in check and wait before typing message after message congratulating others and yourself .

Hope this is true.
I checked just now, after 4 hrs of the 1st post here, and it still shows the same.
Lets wait and see.

Nobody called that India # to check. I thought Vonage is free . I just woke up, and couldnt believe this. Tried calling the #, no one picks it.

Will it help EB3 in this case.

Default how was it last time

WHen this mistake occured last time in June, was it current for EB2 and EB3 or just the EB2. Just a guess, if it's only EB2 then it might be the right information otherwise it cannot b true that EB2 and EB3 are current.

Nope, EB3 was not current. You can see it here : http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/fo...in-is-out.html (June Visa Bulletin is out)

And going through the above painful thread is another reason why people should really check themselves not to get suckered again.

Although one thing to note is that EB3-I last time was set the same as EB3-ROW (2003). So there were two typo's of cut and paste. This time EB3-I seems to be different from EB3-ROW by around 3 years. Of course, this is good news only if the Mumbai consulate always makes two typo's at a time.

Dont draw any conclusions here, but I just did a search based on your question. Last time it happened in May 2010.

Below is from one post I got for May 2010 Mumbai bulletin. Then they changed.

http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/fo...a-current.html (Eb2 india current!!!!!!!)

The 1st guy noted here:

EB2 Current
EB3 22 June 2003

Doesnt matter to us if you are too drunk.
We all only hope that the guy who released this bulletin wasnt drunk and was in full senses, with no mistakes.

Default Maybe or Maynot be

The data may be true or may not be true

Here is the reasoning

May be true....

If you look at EB3 dates it is inline with Jan VB dates so it is unlikely they got the Dominican republic or other data as it happened in June 2010

May not be true... Here is why

Here is the demand data used for Feb 2011 bulletin http://www.travel.state.gov/pdf/Empl...utOffDates.pdf

If you see there is no change from last time.....

So at this point of time I will take it with a pinch of salt and wait for the official VB
