Bloggings on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration

OCTOBER 2011 VISA BULLETIN


The Department of State has just released the October 2011 Visa Bulletin. The October Visa Bulletin is the first Visa Bulletin of US Fiscal Year 2012.

As recently has been the case, the dates moved up slowly but steadily, averaging a one month improvement.

Oct 2011 Visa Bulletin
  All Other Countries China India Mexico
EB-2 Current 15JUL07 15JUL07 Current
EB-3 08DEC05 08AUG04 15JUL02 08DEC05

 

The Visa Bulletin included this prediction on future movement of dates:

Employment Second:

Worldwide: Current

China and India: The current cut-off date is approaching the most favorable date previously reached for applicants from China and India. The rapid forward movement is intended to generate demand based on new filings for adjustment of status at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services offices, which currently accounts for over 85% of all Employment-based number use. Once the level of demand increases sufficiently, it may be necessary to slow or stop the cut-off movement, and a retrogression of the cut-offs at some point during the year is a distinct possibility.

Mexico: Current
Philippines: Current

Employment Third:

Worldwide: up to one month
China: one to three weeks
India: up to two weeks
Mexico: up to one month
Philippines: up to one month
