    Update: I received my renewed PP from CGI Houston. Here are the details

    CGI Houston received : 18-Jun-2008
    PP issue date : 27-Jun-2008
    Fedex date :02-Jul-2008

    Fedex attempted to deliver it on July 3rd but I was out of town till yesterday. I picked it up today (9th July). CGI-H took about 10 business days to process. I decided on purpose to send my application after June 15th, so that all the summer travelers would have renewed it by then. I dont know if that helped me, but I am happy I got new PP in 2 weeks.

    If someone is offered a job at a non-profit year round church camp, what visa can they get to allow them to work for 2 years. obviously proof of intent to return will be required but is there a special visa available?

    Thanks Andy for something authentic. What is VCO advisory? Does this advisory reset dates in VB?

    The AILA memo says this:

    We have been informed that USCIS HQ has instructed the NSC and TSC to reject employment based I-485 applications in the third preference �Other Workers� based on a memo sent by the DOS�s VO to USCIS advising that as of June 6, 2007, there would be no further authorization of visa numbers in this category.

    According to this the VO or VCO can advise CIS to stop asking for numbers.
    Is this a violation of the law?
    Of course not.

    AILA is trying to establish a precedent by saying that only the VB is the one that should determine the visa availabulity.

    Thanks, Sravani.

    I guess, the question now is weather INS will put application on hold and request an Xray after her giving birth or just let it go completely...

    We'll see.

    Murthy's post sounds somewhat convincing because they heard it from Openheimer. On the other hand Gotcher whom I really respect was very confident in his forum that this category will keep on moving till July. So I have hope that we will see it move few months at least !!! I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    BTW Randy, are you SeanD from the Gotcher forum? :cool:

    My PD is Aug 2005

    Just a month behind :(

    There are too many assumptions here. How I see this situation is;
    EB3 I will not move significantly unless and until oversubscribed EB2s become current. Even then, it cannot be taken as granted because the demand of EB2s can take all the spill over and be current without spilling to EB3. USCIS will eventually make the change once they see that EB3 has significant retrogression and there is a lot of noise made about it.

    The solution I see is; we can make a valid presentation showing the effects of this spillover change in the long run and how EB3s will be affected seriously.

    This is my take on spill over interpretation and please dont feel bad if you do not like it. Lets take it this way assume we have 40K extra visa # from EB1 and ROW categories that need to be spilled over to ICPM countries. Now you have two options
    1) Spill it by PD. Which helps EB3 (I)
    2) Spill it by category which helps EB2 (I) & EB2(C)

    If you look at numbers EB3 I # are huge so inspite of pumping 40K into it the numbers barely inch forward. We have seen this all the way till 2007. Where as in just 2 years of spillover EB2 I has moved into 2005 with prediction of becoming current in 2-3 years.

    Now if I was USCIS director and going to Senate hearing. What would I like to tell them that I have used all visa # and EB2 & EB3 are severly backlogged. Or should I say I used up all visa # and now EB1 & Eb2 are current and we have backlogs in only Eb3 category.

    Just that I feel USCIS can claim more bang for buck when they spill in EB2. (just my theory not justyfying it). Also I feel Eb2 is used by large US corporations for its H1 employees especially STEM graduates working. Example Intel, Texas Instruments, Microsoft etc also large financial companies especially for employees on business side (not IT employees). There is pressure from these companies since they do not want to lose some one with business knowledge because of immigrations rules. Just look at how many times Bill Gates has shown up on Senate floor to pitch for EB immigration reform. If you make EB2 current you can shut him up since most Micro Soft employees are under Eb2 category. That way you are effectively muting the critisism againt you on senate floor.

    This way USCIS can also keep these people happy since they can claim that EB2 which translates as Exceptional Ability and Advanced Degrees are now close to current. The only catch is consulting companies and outsourcing companies have sneaked large number of people into Eb2 and they have become lucky.

    I read it and seems to be complex to understand.

    My I-140 was applied in Mar 2005, when my son was 20. PD became current in Jul 2007 and I-485 was filed. I-140 was approved in Oct 2007.

    I have a question: Earlier, it was not possible for me to file I-485 for my son. Under new provision, is it possible?

    Did you I140 really take more than two and a half years to be approved??

    If it really did then that time span is subtracted from you sons age at the time you priority date became current. So if all this is true your son would not be considered aged out.

    A person, leaving behind a car/home and going back to home country is not doing anything criminal. He is playing by the rule. Of course, these acts would shine on his/her credit report for a while.

    I am surprised some of us are actually encouraging immigrants to contribute to the current housing crisis.

    I don't really care how it works in America or the rest of the world but common sense tells me loan defaulting is criminal.
    When I lend $1000 to a friend for a year with 10% interest, I expect $1100 back at the year end. If he cannot pay and runs away to another country, that makes him a criminal (and of course it makes me stupid).
    Let's say I decide to be little smart and hold his $1200 laptop, as a security.
    Now, if I get only $500 by selling it at the end of the year, he still owes me $600 and he should still face criminal charges, because effectively I have been robbed of that amount!

    American mania for home ownership has cost all of us heavily. The whole nation runs on borrowed money, with humongous federal and state deficits.

    I must admit I had not read Slumdog's post properly (I had read his older post abt Peace of mind and was going by a past impression that this one would be a stupid post...).
    I strongly feel without gc one should not buy a house but I like parts of the current posting. I guess the bigger issue is the screwed up immigration system getting tied down to your H1-B/EAD and the prospect of endless waits and that is driving people bonkers - what the hell, I'm not going to compromise on my standard of living. Whatever it is, I fully understand all the issues faced by all EB-I folks.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$GOOD AFTERNOON GC$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Deadline = April 30th, 2011
    Goal = 5000 votes on survey (see I-485 filing w/o current PD thread) and momentum to continue with this campaign.The survey is a platform to gather and push for launching action items. Based on response by 04/30/2011 - IV will decide whether to even proceed with initiative or not.
    Actions - 1) Vote on survey.
    2)Email with PD, ph#,email & subject "I485 filing impacted�,
    3)Print/Circulate Fliers and spread FB, wiki link (see "support thread")

    This is a supporting thread to the "Want to File I-485 without Current Priority Date? Gather here" thread started by pappu.

    As suggested by pappu/starsun, this supporting thread provides impacted members with additional information and tools to help the initiative.

    Visit Immigration Voice Wiki ( 2C_and_EB3.29) - for overview of Employment Based - Green Card process
    Visit I485 Filing w/o current PD Wiki ( - for overview of this initiative

    As pappu stated in the first post of the above referenced thread - some of the ongoing efforts include finding how many IV members would get benefit from such a provision and get basic details such as username/Priority Date of impacted members. Future action items might include drafting documents and letters to support this provision. There maybe actions such as sending emails etc. However we would not be able to open a public action item unless we can have thousands of our members willing to participate in a grassroots action item. This survey intends to understand the needs of our membership for this provision and collect grassroots information.

    The fact is we have a dedicated group of volunteers (and we need more) who have been trying their best to spread the message about this initiative so that a strong grass-roots support can be created leading up to launch of the public action items. So far we have around 1100 people who have responded. Based on quick calculations carried out using PERM data, it is estimated that there are at least 60K-70K EB applicants waiting to file I-485/EAD/AP (this is a very conservative estimate..the actual number could be much more). Grass-roots initiatives require time and patience and we request maximum number of impacted folks to participate actively.
    What can you do to participate?
    1) Vote on the poll/survey created by Pappu.

    Then please send an email to (starsun) with subject - "I485 filing without current PD - Impacted Member". Include your a) IV username b) Email address c) Phone #, d) State of Residence e) Priority Date - so that grassroot efforts can be coordinated

    2) Print out below Flier and circulate at all asian/indian malls/groceries/theaters. Forward the flier to your friends/co-workers and ask them to do the same.

    I485 Filing Initiative Flier (

    3) Volunteers have created a facebook community and an Immigration Voice WIKI page to spread the message about this initiative. Please circulate these links among your friends/co-workers who will be helped.

    Please "Share" and "Link" and "send to friend" the facebook community via your Facebook account. Also include these two links when you post on the IV forum.

    I got the "card production ordered" email today which probably means that the gc application has been approved.

    Here's the info for immigration voice team/users' tracking approvals

    my PD is nov 2005.
    Receipt date: 7/31/2007
    center: nebraska

    I got married last year and the lawyers were about to file the follow-to-join application for my wife in the next couple of days. But my application seems to have got approved first. Has anyone been in this situation before?


    If what I have heard is true, your lawyers made it late.

    The Visa bulletin came out almost 4 weeks back. You should have hurried the application in. Check with your lawyer to see is there any special ways to get your app in.

    What i will say is hurry it now at least.

    Good luck buddy

    This is a good idea. Cubans get the GC the day they land on this country. They can also count the number of years they waited on GC towards citizenship. All we need is a good EB-immigrant community lobby and few senators/reps who would do our bidding.

    Hello, Thanks for the help. Here is my list.

    1. As CIS told Congress in a hearing last year, They indeed wasted visas due to administrative delays. Clearing such a backlog would make all EB current. - Best case scenario

    2. Allowing people to file Adjustment of Status (AOS) after their immigration petition (I140) is approved but were unable due to their country cap. Relax/clarify the AC-21 rule for Same or Similar occupation. How much long wait is considered long enough to move-on? (in general terms) - Average Scenario

    3. Let CIS publish the real backlog of the EB AOS applications (Backlog defined by common sense - should include all the EB AOS cases and not just what they think not backedup due to Visa availability) pending by country, and PD in 2-3 months. - Worst case Scenario. Atleast helps us plan our future by deciding to continue the wait or get back home.

    4. Starting the Citizenship clock after I140 approved.

    Thanks again for your help..
