immigration attorney dallas txThe Department of State has told AILA that because of decreasing demand for EB-1 visa numbers, the EB-2 category will be given at least 12,000 additional visa numbers. The 12,000 numbers will largely be given to Indian EB-2 applicants. EB-2 Chinese natives may also be positively impacted by this news.

The May 2011 Visa Bulletin, which should be released in mid-April 2011, should reflect this news."Immigration guru Chris Musillo posted this news flash on ILW.  All those with approved I-140s but no current priority date should take out their  old files  and start preparing their adjustment applications because there will be a mad rush to the Texas and Nebraska Service Centers.  The backlog of EB-2 applications from Indian nationals dates back to May 8, 2006.  It is great news that EB2 applicants from India may be able to move to the head of the line and finally apply for adjustment of status.
