FY2012 Annual Limit in EB-2 for China-Mainland Born and Indian People Reached
American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) released a notice on April 23, 2012. According to this notice, AILA has confirmed with the State Department that the annual limit in the EB-2 category for China-mainland born and Indian people has been reached and that no further visas for those categories would be authorized.
USCIS will continue to accept adjustment applications based upon cut-off dates published in the April and May Visa Bulletins. However, because the visa numbers are reached, the USCIS cannot process I-485 cases even for those I-485 applicants who have an available immigrant visa number. Requests from USCIS service centers and field offices for visas in the EB-2 category aliens chargeable to China-mainland born or India will be retained by Department of State for authorization in FY2013, beginning on October 1, 2012.
