The U.S. State Department has recently indicated that it expects the EB-2 worldwide category to become current on October 1, 2012. Therefore, EB-2 applicants who were not born in India or China should be current on October 1, 2012.
The State Department also indicated that it expected EB-2 numbers for people born in India or China to become available with a priority date of approximately August or September of 2007 and they do not expect much forward movement in these categories for the first half of the fiscal year.
Hopefully, some day there will be a legislative fix for visa backlogs for EB-2 applicants born in India or China and all EB-3 applicants.
