August 2010 Employment Based Visa Bulletin
The Department of State released the new visa bulletin for August 2010 on July 12, 2010.
For the month of August, the EB-1 category was current for both Chinese and Indian nationals. In the EB-2 category, cut-off dates moved forward more than three months for Chinese nationals (from November 22, 2005 to March 1, 2006), and moved forward five months for Indian nationals from October 1, 2005 to March 1, 2006. In the EB-3 category, dates moved forward from August 15, 2003 to September 22, 2203 and from November 22, 2001 to January 1, 2002 for Chinese and Indian nationals respectively
For the month of July, the EB-1 category was current for both Chinese and Indian nationals. In the EB-2 category, cut-off dates stayed the same for Chinese nationals (November 22, 2005), but moved forward eight months for Indian nationals from February 1, 2005 to October 1, 2005. In the EB-3 category, dates moved forward from June 22, 2003 to August 15, 2003 and from October 22, 2001 to November 22, 2001 for Chinese and Indian nationals respectively
Due to the economic crisis, there have been fewer applicants for PERM EB-2 this fiscal year. When visa numbers were open to all categories in June and July 2007, USCIS received an increased number of I-140 and I-485 petitions. USCIS is currently reviewing these cases. From January to June 2010, our firm received 101 EB-1 case approvals and 131 NIW case approvals.
As predicted, cut-off dates, for the most part, have continued to move forward. For Chinese and Indian recipients of EB-2s, the cut-off date this month moved up considerably. We hope to see this same trend next month.
