The State Department recently released the February 2012 Visa Bulletin which continues the trend of rapid forward movement of EB-2 priority dates for Indian and Chinese nationals. In February, the numbers will move forward by 12 months to January 1, 2010. Therefore, individuals with a priority date on or before January 1, 2010 will be able to file for adjustment of status as of February 1, 2012.
Our office will be assisting many existing and new clients in the preparation of adjustment of status applications. We look forward to the continuing forward movement of the priority dates in this category.
Unfortunately, the EB-3 priority date for all countries advanced in a more modest fashion by moving forward approximately three weeks.
