Visa Bulletin Predictions by Charlie Oppenheim

Charles ("Charlie") Oppenheim, Chief of the Visa Control and Reporting Division, U.S. Department of State, made the following predictions and projections regarding the upcoming Visa Bulletins pursuant to AILA's DOS Liaison Committee:

1) No major changes in his previous predictions until February and March of next year.  The current trends (including slow movement of India's EB-2 and Eb-3) will continue for a few more months.

2) EB-5 China Movements:  Monthly updates are forth coming on EB-5 China starting January 2015.

3) EB-3 China:  Advancement will continue but at a "slower pace" than early 2014.  Demand for visa numbers may increase due to downgrades to EB-3.  If that does not happen by December or January, advancement will be more rapid starting in February.
