June 2021 Visa Bulletin: India EB-2/EB-3 Advances

 




There is good news for Indian employment-based immigrant visa applicants in June. India EB-2 advances 4 months to 12/1/2010, and EB-3 advances 9 months to 11/1/2011. 

As EB-3 India cutoff date continues to be more favorable than EB-2, eligible EB-2 Indian workers may consider filing an EB-3 "downgrade" I-140 petition in order to submit the I-485 (Adjustment of Status), I-765 (Employment Authorization), and I-131 (Advance Parole) applicantions earlier.
