India EB3

It has been at a single spot for months for both the final action date and dates of filing application. This has left a lot of people wondering if they will see any movement in August, or in the following months.

Currently, we don’t believe that EB3 will have much movement in August 2022. Though, there may be a little advancement by 1 month for both the final action date and dates of filing application. The month, September 2022 may bring more movement for EB3.

India EB2

There has been slight movement for India EB2 every month. So, you should expect to see another movement for this category. We made an estimate that both the final action date and the date of filing application will advance by at most 3 months.

You should take note that there is no indication that there will be a retrogression for India EB3 for FY 2022. The USCIS has stated that they are in good position to utilize all the available EB visas for FY 2022. This means that people will likely see forward progress moving forward into FY 2023.
