October Visa Bulletin has Been Released – How long do you have to wait for residency?

EB2 India and China both become available in the October Visa Bulletin. The cut-off date for applicants from China will be July 15, 2007 and for those from India, September 15, 2004. DOS has indicated that heavy usage in the EB1 category by Indians has made fewer visas available to Indians in the EB2 category, which may explain the discrepancy in priority dates between the India and China categories.

Progress in the Employment Third (EB3) preference is expected to be slow but steady throughout FY2013 due to heavy usage in the EB1 and EB2 categories. Notably, however, there is no progress in priority dates in the EB3 China and Philippines categories for October.
