July Visa Bulletin: EB-2 "All Other Countries" no longer current

In July 2012's State Department Visa Bulletin, EB-2 "All Other Countries" now has a cut-off date of January 1, 2009.  It means that only cases with earlier priority dates earlier than January 1, 2009 will be processed for visas and green cards.  According to the State Department, if heavy demand for visa worsens, this category may become "unavailable" - as China and India have been for the past couple of months.

  1. Hi, we have a priority date of 12th of June 2006 and we were wondering what is happening as regards to interview dates.

  2. If I understand your question correctly, It looks like your priority date is current and your case will proceed normally at least for now.
