For the upcoming April 2010 Visa Bulletin, we predict that cut-off date for China EB-2 to be October 15 or 22, of 2005. This is based on the newly released DOS Visa Office explanation of how cutoff dates are established.
Well, the offical April VB should arrive within a couple days, so we will see if this calculation is accurate. If it is, we will tell you how we come up with that number in a follow-up post.
This exercise is more fun than useful, because it doesn’t help you much by knowing the cutoff dates just a bit earlier. And there is no guarantee that DOS will continue to publish their data every month. But it is a good way to understand how the process works, and it has certainly helped me.
