The Visa Bulletin for June 2012 has recently been published and shows unavailability of immigrant visas in the employment-based second preference (EB-2) category for individuals who are born in China or India. The EB-2 preference category is for prospective immigrants filling positions that require either an advanced degree or a bachelor’s degree and at least five years of experience. The immediate impact of this development is that natives of India and China in the EB-2 category may not be issued immigrant visas or granted adjustment of status. Additionally, qualified individuals from India and China who are in the EB-2 category will be unable to file an I-485 (Adjustment of Status) application until more visa numbers are available.
