The October, 2014 Visa Bulletin advises that the current high level of EB-2 demand from India could push back Indian EB-2 priority dates from its current May 1, 2009, to early 2005. In fact, this retrogression could occur as early as November, 2014, reflecting the large number of filings in behalf of Indian EB-3s who sought a re-filling as an EB-2 to shorten the wait for visa availability. Eligible Indian EB-2s are urged to file for adjustment of status before the end of October, 2014 while visa numbers remain available.
