October 2010 Employment Based Visa Bulletin
The Department of State released the new visa bulletin for October 2010 on September 9, 2010.
For the month of October, the EB-1 category was current for both Chinese and Indian nationals. In the EB-2 category, the cut-off dates moved forward 14 days for Chinese nationals (from May 8, 2006 to May 22, 2006), and remained unchanged for Indian nationals (May 8, 2006). In the EB-3 category, the cut-off dates moved forward from October 22, 2003 to November 8, 2003 and from January 1, 2002 to January 15, 2002 for Chinese and Indian nationals respectively.
For the month of September, the EB-1 category was current for both Chinese and Indian nationals. In the EB-2 category, the cut-off dates moved forward more than two months for both Chinese nationals (from March 1, 2006 to May 8, 2006) and Indian nationals (from March 1, 2006 to May 8, 2006). In the EB-3 category, the cut-off dates moved forward from September 22, 2003 to October 22, 2003 for Chinese nationals while the cut-off dates stayed the same as they were in August for Indian nationals (January 1, 2002).
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 August 2010, our firm received 119 EB-1 case approvals and 157 NIW case approvals.
As predicted, the cut-off dates, for the most part, have continued to move forward. We hope to see this same trend next month.
