Potential Retrogression for EB-2 India

The Department of State (DOS) says that retrogression of EB-2 India appears to be imminent, and it could happen as early as November. The October 2014 priority date for EB-2 India is May 1, 2009. Given current demand, the priority date will retrogress, possibly to a date in early 2005. If you’re an Indian national and your priority date is ‘current’, plan on filing your adjustment of status applications by the end of October for any eligible EB-2 case.

A major factor in this anticipated retrogression is the large volume of EB-3 to EB-2 upgrades for Indian-born applicants. Based on filings at USCIS, the DOS anticipates a huge volume of India EB-2 demand in the coming months.
