Update: The October Visa Bulletin is now live. It reveals that the EB-1 preference categories for China and India are now current and there is no backlog.
If you are sponsoring an Indian or Chinese national via the EB-1 preference green card category, please note that the priority dates have retrogressed approximately six years.
We cannot predict when the EB-1 priority dates will be current again for Indian and Chinese nationals but it is possible it would happen in October when more immigrant visas become available per the government’s fiscal year, which runs from October to September.
For additional details concerning how this impacts your green card case, contact your attorney.
