Here is news for you. It will not happen. People with ported PDs will take priority as their dates are in 2002, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005...

This year spillover will be used by porters. So hold off on your celebration and wait like everyone else.

Brother, why the mean intonation? We are all for stopping EB2-EB3 war, until one of us is slightly at disadvantage. High time we change attitude

I guess by the end of FY-11, EB2 cutoff will reach Dec 2006 or early 2007.. but movement from there on would be slow as many are started porting now.. In any case I don't there will be more than 10K porting per year.. If porting exceed more than 10K, EB2 progress will be slow.. Good luck to all

Default It will not go any where

So many people are porting, I dont think it will not go any where, max will be few months in this year, even we will not surprise to not even any movement.

I know couple of my friends in EB3, almost all of them are porting, some of them got their cards too.....so no hopes....

Default Massive Retrogression Likely

Based on Visa Bulletin report, it seems like massive retrogression is likely for EB3 as well as EB2 for the rest of the year. Many have ported and some hibernating applications are now active.

When I said that there should be one Item in IV agenda to Ban Porting, everyone got mad.

I still say that they should be allowed to port but should go back in line. they are disturbing the balance. I am not against them, if they were EB2 candidates why they didnt file on EB2 category at first, if now they think they are qualified then they should start new process.

BTW. they will create a big retrogression for EB2 then EB2 people have to port to EB3

Red dots are welcome.

Thanks

Porting process is a legit process and for well qualified EB-3 india folks thats the only ray of Hope.

You can rant about it but noone going to stop the porting process becaue the folks who initially filed under EB-3 are now eligible to get Job promotions , new roles and responsibilities in their Career and in some cases new Sr. Job positions which are qualified EB-2. By the way they do file new PERM labor and new I-140, it is not a automatic qualification just based on number of years waiting in the endless EB-3 india queue.

Under the current circumstances where EB-3 india doesnt get any spillover numbers or any such relief like VISA recapture bill, do you expect them to go behind the lines with new EB-2 PD? What about the wait period in the backlog centres, in the PERM process and for few I140 stage waiting period? Its the law and people are following it. You can try porting to EB1 if you are qualified enough and port your EB-2 PD to EB-1.

Just because you are qualified initially for EB-2 doesnt mean others are inferior and they are not eligible to port to EB-2.

Thumbs up

Agree..
Only people with PDs before 2005 know the pain of wait at backlog centers,
If there was no PERM...lot of EB2 guys (including those who oppose porting) with priority 2005 and later would have missed window of July 2007

I have done some study and can understand not many are porting. But there are few.
But if we raise our voice against porting, they will raise theirs with double the intensity against spillovers. So I dont think we should throw stones on their houses, when ours are made of glass. Moreoever if we see the statistics, there is a HUGE # of EB2 applicants in 2007 onwards I think. Unless we all act together, its not going anywhere.
I know many cases where newer applicants applied in EB2 and were much lesser in hierarchy than their bosses who are in EB3 and waiting. I think we must respect that, and more importantly as soon as raise our voice, they will not keep quite, right. You would also not keep quite if in their shoes.
Best will be if IV comes up with some programs to reduce this backlogs.

Just to add.... porting process is legit for EB-2 as well. EB-1 is current now.

In many cases the question is NOT about qualification of the applicant but the policy of the company -- lump all in EB3 so that the employee stick to company endlessly. If you think porting is unfair, Citizens and LPRs think H1B and entire EB GC process is unfair ...

Disclaimer: I have Never filed in EB3 . My first and only filing is in EB2.

Please remove the link to this crab crap.
Jealousy is a human personality trait. It's present in people of other countries too.
It's ridiculous to attribute this trait only to Indians.

On a side note:
How do you decide the nationality of the crabs? Do they have passports??
Don't just copy paste something an imbecile moron wrote and forward to ur friends and colleagues demeaning yourself and fellow Indians.

Think think think......
