August Visa Bulletin

DOS released the Visa Bulletin for August 2008. In addition to the 3rd Preference category, the Other Workers category is now unavailable.

EB2 category is current for all countries, except for India and China. However, the India and China cutoff date has moved forward to June 1, 2006. This is amazing forward movement, as it is the most favorable cutoff date in EB2 for either country since the July 2007 Visa Bulletin. Individuals from India and China who missed the I-485 filings during July 2007, may have the opportunity to file their I-485s in August 2008. The eligibility to file would apply to those who have EB2 priority dates prior to June 1, 2006 and are otherwise eligible to file the I-485.
