Updates on Priority Date Movements Heading Into 2020

December 23, 2019 | Immigration
On the positive side, EB-1 Worldwide advanced 2.5 months and there is hope that it could be current by the summer of 2020.  EB-1 China and EB-1 India, however, continue to experience little to no movement.

Expect to see some retrogression for EB-2 and EB-3 Worldwide within in the first 3 months of 2020.  EB-2 China and EB-2 India continue to experience very little movement.

EB-3 China will remain 5 months ahead of EB-2 China at the start of 2020.

Other than some positive movement with EB-1 Worldwide, much of the current backlogs will continue to exist heading into the first half of 2020.
