The Department of State has released the latest visa bulletin for August 2013. In that bulletin there have been several significant movements. First, in terms of family based applications, the F2A category – spouses and children of permanent residents, has come current. Second, the EB-2 for India has moved forward to January 1, 2008. It should be noted that both of these moves were to stimulate demand. DOS has stated that there are many cases in the backlog in both categories but that people are not filing the I-485s and completing the process, so they have moved the dates up to use up the remaining visas for this year. With that in mind, they have stated that the dates will retrogress sometime after September, if not before.
