    August Visa bulletin: How EB3 - China retrogressed to 2004 from 2011. How this is possible.
    Good for EB3 India - jumped 6 months.

    That EB3I jump was due to spillover from WW.

    I don't want to raise false hopes, but it is likely we will see something similar in September, followed by a mild retrogression in October. If your PD is current, file your AOS immediately after August 1st.

    Ron,

    Do you foresee EB2 I retrogress this fiscal year? Also, based on the current trend and situation, when do you think EB2 I Marc 26 2010 will become current (atleast for a month)?

    I don't foresee a retrogression in September, but neither do I see a progression.

    But how about progression next year? Do you think we will get to Apr 2010 by March 2016?

    Unless there is an unexpected infusion of visas, I seriously doubt it.

    Hi Ron,

    A lot of EB3-I people from June-October 2004 PD have reported getting RFEs recently. Has the USCIS made it truly mandatory to get a new Medical done before giving green cards or it is still case by case? Thanks

    Yes. Medical results are only valid for one year now. Wait until they ask for new results, however, before you submit them. They are not asking for them every year, only when they are close to closing out the case.

    Thanks Ron. Has anyone in your knowledge recently received approval with their 5 plus years old medical on file at the USCIS. So basically, should I not expect an approval if I become current sometime in the next 2-3 months without a medical RFE? Thanks again.

    You are correct. Expect an RFE.

    Thanks Ron. Are these RFEs sent to both me and you (you are my awesome lawyer!) or only to you? Thanks
