Interesting Priority Date Updates from DoS--Rumor that EB-3 India Current by September 2018?
Mr. Oppenheim does believe that EB-2 India will reach 2009 this year. Interesting he noted that there has been about a 60-75% decrease in EB-3 to EB-2 India upgrades. If that trend holds true, it bodes well for EB-2 advancement as well.
Many Indian nationals are looking to qualify under the EB-1 preference category, which may explain lower EB-3 to EB-2 upgrades, as well as the priority date backlog for EB-1 India. The new strategy may be Indian nationals pursuing EB-5 cases.
