We should help IV in it's administrative fixes campaign. At least we'll have 3 year EAD/APs, opportunity for promotion etc. while the VB bulletins haunt us with dire results for the next couple of years.

Default What The Visa Bulletin Means

Hi Arindamb,
It means that no Indian who has filed under the EB2 category can apply for their AOS until the category is made available again, as per the priority date.

However, AOS applications already submitted will continue to be processed - albeit slowly. I was under the impression of what you implied in your post as well - that they aren't adjudicating any India-EB2 applications - but that is incorrect.

Anyways, I actually take it to be a good sign only because they're working through applications already filed and adjudicating on them.

Hope this information proves helpful and I apologize if I'm posting this to the wrong forum.

Sincerely,
Sweta.

Yes, I think you are correct. As per the September 2007 bulletin EB3 India was Unavailable and yet on there are multiple EB3-India approvals. To me the I-485 stage is a complete blackhole.

Sveta, it's not quite correct. The applications will be processed (whatever slowly means) and will be in "preadjudicated" state until priority date will become current. No AOS is possible without visa number assigned to it and no visa number can be assigned if priority date is not current.

Meanwhile USCIS might be sending RFEs, reviewing cases, maybe even revoking I-140s, but no adjudication. So 'U' is a bad sign for our Indian friends. Those cases without visa numbers assigned will be rotting for pretty long time.

This is how I understand it. Anybody correct me if I'm wrong.

Talking Hope is a Great Word

Knowing USCIS Trend.....I believe and HOPE that very soon we will see a repeat of June/July 2007 bulletin.

U will become C for Eb2. See the letters from USCIS .....There is a "S" in between U and C.....which is the Siesta time that USCIS takes, before they release another 60K GC's in 2008.

Hoping is Free.......No charge involved....Definitly cheaper than the 20K i spent in the past 3 years for GC and H1 renewals.

Recapture of unused visas is the only admin fix that will reduce the queue, every thing else provides a false sense of security.

if there are 100k in EB2 for india and there is no recapture or a change in immigration policy, then one is looking at a 15-20 year wait. What good is AC21 or renewing EAD every 3 years. -- just imo

for the Nth time:
recapture of unused visas is a LEGISLATIVE fix, not an administrative one.

Legislative is something that the senate/house/president have to sign into law.
Administrative is something the USCIS can do on its own discretion.

Alright guys...it may be an administrative fix or Legislative what ever it is but we need those visas numbers to be recraptured and we need to support the IV in doing that...

This was expected since last month. Nothing new.
Nothing may happen until the elections if we do not push it hard enough. This is the reason we started the letters campaign. It is now upon the community to make it successful.
