China EB2 Visa Bulletin

This table below shows Visa Bulletin Cutoff Dates for China EB2 over the past several years. Month-to-month visa bulletin movement for the category is also calculated and displayed. Green colored texts mean your cutoff date advanced during that month; while red means backward or no movement. In addition, wait time is shown to reflect the severity of visa number retrogression, if any. Wait time is calculated by comparing the cut-off date and the corresponding visa bulletin month. Starting October, 2015, there are two charts of cutoff dates and the movement below is calculated based on the "approval" or "final action" visa bulletin.

To see other countries and categories, go to the Visa Bulletin toolbox page.
