D. CHINA-MAINLAND BORN AND INDIA EMPLOYMENT-BASED SECOND PREFERENCE VISA AVAILABILITY IN THE COMING MONTHS
November Employment-based Second preference cut-off date for
applicants from China and India is the most favorable since
August 2007. This advancement is expected to
generate significant levels of demand based on new filings for
status at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration
Services offices. While significant future cut-off date movements are
they may not be made on a monthly basis.
Readers should not expect such movements to be the norm throughout the
and an eventual retrogression of the cut-off at
some point during the year is a distinct possibility."
