Thread: IRRITATING NEWS REGARDING CUT-OFF RETROGRESSION DATES

  1. #1
    Vivek I've got some bad news regarding the visa nos. in the coming months. Check out "
    http://travel.state.gov/visa/frvi_bulletincurrent.html" and also read the following:-

    "During the past several years, the Citizenship and Immigration Service (CIS) demand for numbers has been low. To compensate for the lack of demand from CIS, the Visa Office advanced the immigrant visa cut-off dates very rapidly to provide sufficient qualified applicants at our overseas posts and permit the maximum use of immigrant visa numbers. Such advances also meant that many thousands of additional applicants became eligible to file for adjustment of status at CIS offices. During recent months, CIS demand for numbers has increased significantly as they have begun to address their backlog situation. This increase in CIS demand for numbers is expected to continue, and immigrant visa cut-off date movement is likely to slow or stop in the Family preference categories.

    Depending upon the rate at which demand is received, it may become necessary to establish cut-off dates in Employment preference categories. At this time, it is not known if or when this may happen during FY-2005."

    So what do you think Vivek?
