I believe that Sep 2010 would be the last month of this year's fiscal year, right? Any possibilities that some visa numbers may spill downward from EB2? Does anyone have any knowledge how "spilling" works?
Since no one (including myself) can predict next month's visa number availability, I have done some research. It seems that the closest guess for EB3 ROW would August 2005 by the end of this fiscal year.
Cut off dates are established on the 8th of each month, so the bulletin should become available on the 11th or 12th at the very latest. (as is the case every month).
There are 150,657 EB visa numbers available for this fiscal year. Since EB 1 and 2 are current for ROW, it means that unused visa numbers for these categroies will spill downward towards EB 3.
Anything over 10,000 will spill downward one more towards OTHER WORKERS every month.
This is my speculation based off what I have read from the Operation of the Numerical Control Process link on visa bulletin page. (see link below) I could be wrong. Can someone please clarify if my understanding is accurate?
My PD finally became current (PD March 20, 2003 - Other Workers). Filled I-140 and I-485in December 2003. Haven't received any noticed about transfer to local office. So guys, what should I do? Does it mean there won't be an interview? If I don't get anything by next Visa Bulletin and the PD retrogresses or become unavailable, does it mean I will have to wait again? I am very confused! Don't know how it works. My lawyer told me to wait. Please help?????
Thank you all
I think your lawyer is probably right. Just wait. Since you are current, your 485 will be processed. I don't know if everyone is asked for an interview. I think this is a case-by-case basis. Hopefully your 485 will be processed before any retrogression takes place.
