Visa Bulletin Update: EB-2 Priority Date Progresses One Year

If you review the DOS Visa Bulletin for February 2012 here, you will see that employment-based second preference cut-off date for India has moved to 1/1/2010.  This means that the EB-2 category has moved up an entire year.  In January of 2012, the cut-off date was 1/1/09.  Great news for those Indian nationals who have a priority date (i.e., In green card processing through PERM, your priority date is the date when the PERM petition is received by the DOL) at any point in 2009.  You can now file your green card application (Form I-485).
