The June 2022 Visa Bulletin has been released, and it’s leaving many India EB2 and EB3 green card applicants with 2014 and 2015 priority dates wondering how long they’ll be waiting before significant movement will be made.
If you recall in our June 2022 Visa Bulletin Predictions, we did not expect to see much movement for most categories, which did end up being the case – with one exception. The Final Action Date for India EB2 advanced by a full year, bringing the priority date to September 1, 2014. There was unfortunately no movement for Final Action Date or Dates for Filing Application for EB3.
The year advance for India EB2 for Final Action Date does signify some movement within the category. Many analysts did not expect the Final Action Date for India EB2 to move more than 3 months. However, this big jump could be indicative of a future standstill, and possible retrogression. Next up on the list to make moves is India EB3, which many are expecting to see an advancement in the July 2022 Visa Bulletin.
The USCIS may be waiting another month or two to advance EB3, due to having a better understanding of the number of those who interfiled from EB3 to EB2. With current information and numbers regarding available green cards in the EB3 category, it does appear that EB3 is still not expected to reach Jan 2014 by this FY 2022.
