December 2010 Employment Based Visa Bulletin
The Department of State released the new visa bulletin for December 2010 on November 12, 2010.
For the month of December, the EB-1 category was current for both Chinese and Indian nationals. In the EB-2 category, the cut-off dates moved forward 7 days for Chinese nationals (from June 1, 2006 to June 8, 2006), and remained unchanged for Indian nationals (May 8, 2006). In the EB-3 category, the cut-off dates moved forward from November 22, 2003 to December 8, 2003 for Chinese nationals while remaining unchanged for Indian nationals (January 22, 2002).
For the month of November, the EB-1 category was current for both Chinese and Indian nationals. In the EB-2 category, the cut-off dates moved forward 10 days for Chinese nationals (from May 22, 2006 to June 1, 2006), and remained unchanged for Indian nationals (May 8, 2006). In the EB-3 category, the cut-off dates moved forward from November 8, 2003 to November 22, 2003 and from January 15, 2002 to January 22, 2002 for Chinese and Indian nationals respectively.
Due to the economic crisis, there have been fewer applicants for PERM EB-2 this fiscal year.
From January to September 2010, our firm received 127 EB-1 case approvals and 168 NIW case approvals. Again, before you start the application process, it is imperative that you consult with a highly trained legal professional, particularly since USCIS has become stricter with EB-1 applications after a memo was released on August 18, 2010. In essence, the USCIS memo breaks the EB-1 evaluation process up into two parts – 1) evaluating whether the applicant meets the baseline criteria for the immigration category and 2) determining whether the applicant’s evidence demonstrates the required high level of expertise for the immigration category. In the second part of the review process the USCIS will evaluate the evidence to see if, as a whole, it proves by a preponderance of the evidence that the applicant is at the very top of his or her field of endeavour.
