Retrogression of EB-2 Visas for Indian Nationals

Charlie Oppenheim, Chief of Visa Reporting and Control Division for the Department of State, has issued his thoughts/predictions on EB-2 retrogression for Indian nationals and forward movement for preference categories.

Due to high upgrades from EB-3 to EB-2 category and high demand for EB-2 visas, the EB-2 category for Indian nationals will retrogress in November 2014 to February 15, 2005 priority date.  EB-2 India clients are urged to file their Adjustment of Status applications before the end of October 2014.

Unfortunately for EB-2 India clients, there is no forward movement predicted for the forseeable future. However, for family-based preference categories, there will be modest forward movement of possibly a few weeks to two months per month.
