If that is the case, why is there a big movement? I am assuming that the Jul 07 backlog has been significantly reduced and hence this big movement. Correct me if my assumption is wrong.

Default Something fishy

I know many people have their priority dates current since past few months but still they are waiting for I-485 approval. Hope this should not be scam to issue the EAD for only a year instead of two years.

Almost two years jump is unbelievable specially we know big numbers of Perms filed during 2005 and mid of 2006.

Just wondering...
How many people would benefit out of this big movement?
What estimated # of applications is USCIS expecting through this movement?
If the dates were current last year same time, how many ppl with PDs between 2004 and 2006 would have missed the bus last year? Dont think many wld have...
Excuse my ignorance if there is a basic mistake in my assumption

Yes, your assumption is wrong. The dates move when USCIS doesn't approve many cases ina month. That leaves DOS to believe that there are no enough demand and hence they move dates forward. but as I said, I am very positive that the movement is to facilitate CP to approve cases. I wont be surprised if they move EB2 further next month.

If uscis works more efficiently, several thousand EB2 i may benefit.

Below is reproduced from uscis 7/07 explanation for last yr july fiasco. "60000 visa numbers available were made available" during the weekend of june/july 07.

during the past month have resulted in the use of almost 60,000 Employment numbers. As a result of this unexpected action it has been necessary to make immediate adjustments to several previously announced cut-off dates. All Citizenship and Immigration Services Offices have been notified of the following:
Effective Monday July 2, 2007 there will be no further authorizations in response to requests for Employment-based preference cases. All numbers available to these categories under the FY-2007 annual numerical limitation have been made available.

Congrats to all the IV EB2 members who will benefit from the Aug Visa Bulletin. I am so happy for them.

Will it move beyond June 2006 for EB2 India in September 2008 Bulletin?

This appears to be half the battle won for EB2 as it has to translated into actual approval. Also we must be mindfull of EB3 retrogression and must not lose sight of it in this Euphoria.

Default Question

I am hoping this is not a typo from the mumbai consulate and USCIS visa bulletin will reflect the same.

My priority date is April 06. Does this mean that there is a chance for me to get the GC now?

How much time does it usually take for USCIS to approve the application after the priority date is current in the bulletin?

And lastly, what are the chances of USCIS staying on this date for EB2-I and not retrogressing it back to some old date (after it issues 1 yr EAD to everyone !!)?
