Possible predictions on the Visa Bulletin for the next few months.

Few days ago the December 2015 Visa Bulletin came out and many are again disappointed because not only the acceptance time for EB2 India has not moved from the July 1 2009, the card issuing time has actually not moved a lot.  As such those who were waiting to obtain their permanent residence above May 2007 will not be able to get anything soon.

The question is what can we expect in the next few months. According to our estimates and note those are purely speculative, we believe that there might be no movement on the acceptance date from July 1 2009 until January 2016 and we believe that the processing GC (greencard) will move to 2008 probably in December 2015 for the January 2016 Visa Bulletin and peak to the the same date of July 2009 by January 2016 for February 2016 Visa Bulletin when actually we will see a possible move forward on the acceptance date to probably January 2010.

Having said that, there is also a possibility of retrogression or status quo until the next fiscal year calculation. Noting that 2016 is an election year, we should be ready to expect the unexpected.  Until then we wish all you the best and hope that hopefully we will be able to get some positive results. Please keep signing our petitions to reduce the EB2 and EB3 time for India.
