Thats why visa bulletin threads are of no use. We will continue to see this trend unless a bill passes. Hope more people take part in IV activities now and contrbute to IV.

Default How can there be change in dates

How can there be any change in dates where the demand for visas exceeds the supply by a factor of 10.

I am surprised that the dates didnt move in reverse direction. Or even become "U" (Unavailable) for that matter.

There are 500,000 applicants in queue. With dependents, they would all need nearly 1.1 million visas. The annual quota is 140,000.

So why even bother to check visa bulletins, unless your PD is within 1 month of the current dates. Even that is too optimistic this year.

Lightbulb Fees increases

May be this is related to fee increases also.

When is the new fee structure will be in effect ...?

Then we can see some movement ....

USCIS does not want to loose single free cent from immigrants..

This is expected. I used to feel nervous to read the new VB. Now I am totally numbed. Should there be more people who realize the severity of the retrogression and start to contribute?

Unhappy No predictions

Past few bulletins have definitely pulled all steam out of the members who used to participate in the VB predictions. I strongly believe that the bulletin dates will only move forward 1-2 months per YEAR if the law is not amended.

All the fence-sitters who are waiting for a miracle... Please start contributing from today itself because this year is THE year to get reform passed. Otherwise be prepared to wait for 3-4 years and don't waste your time checking VBs for next 3-4 years.

Default Wake up call

Its a wake up call for every one who are dreaming that favourable bills are getting passed ...with out putting any of their effort .

We need to fight for any favorable amendments to get passed .

We may start by contributing to the organization (IV) that are advocating our interests.

I am sure ..that coming bulletins would be the same if no Bills are passed.......

My two cents

All Fence sitters....
All those 'waiting for Godot'..
All those who are waiting for a miracle..


There is no miracle waiting for you around the corner...
The only way for the visa dates to change is through legislative change..
The only party reepresenting YOU in the legislative process is IV....
Please contribute to this effort...


-------------------------------------------
Some people say..IV is very money minded. It has to be money minded..Organizations donot run on thin air..Organizations have to rely on contributions from members....

Members,

First and foremost thing is contributions. For those who have joined IV recently and still are skeptical. Please call and write to Law Makers and encourage your friends to join IV. Once, you are convinced on mission and goals then contributions will follow.
