EB-3 China and EB-2 India priority dates are projected to continue to advance in 2015. Updated visa priority dates are published monthly in the Department of State’s Visa Bulletin, but officials also forecast future numbers based upon a variety of factors.
According to the most recent predictions from the Department of State, the priority date for EB-3 China will remain significantly ahead of EB-2 China for the coming months, leaving EB-3 “downgrades” a worthwhile consideration for many. Progression as far as 2012 is a possibility for EB-3 China, according to Charles Oppenheim, Chief of the Visa Control and Reporting Division, U.S. Department of State.
EB-2 India is also expected to advance by four to six months from September 5, 2005 to as far as March 2006 in the early part of 2015, with more significant advances expected near May. However, there will likely be less movement in this category towards the end of the year due to increased EB-2 India “upgrades.”
