March Visa Bulletin Slows Down EB-2 Forward Movement

February 9, 2012

As we predicted, yesterday's March Visa Bulletin put an end to the last two months of leapfrogging for EB-2 Indian and Chinese nationals, and there continues to be little movement for the EB-3 category. EB-2 Chinese and Indian nationals with current priority dates should file their applications to adjust status immediately, to protect against retrogression later this year which could occur for these categories.
