EB1-B applicant from India, interview done, next?

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am an EB1 b applicant from India. My interview was over on Jan 31st but because the EB1 is in retrogression and has in fact gone back to Jan 1 2012 in the latest bulletin I am wondering how long it will take to get approved. Which service center does my case go to after the interview is done? I can check the processing times on the basis of that information. 

 

Is anyone else in the same boat? Feel so disappointed and helpless.

 

Thanks and good luck,

 

Tilottama

You can check process of the Priority Date on the Visa Bulletin and compare it to yours, will be stored until the PD is current.

I do not know where they are stored, not sure if it has ever been mentioned, does not really matter.

Well, True. It does not really matter. Jut feel bad about the whole thing - having to wait for a very long time even after my interview is done...bad luck I must say - increased demand in this category and then going into retrogression :(

 

Thanks!

You said you already had the interview so there is no processing time moving forward. It’s just the wait time till your PD becomes current. 

 

Since you are from India you can only blame other EB1 applicants from India who are the reasons behind the retrogression. The other applicants will blame you back for the same reason though. So just hope it becomes current soon. Btw, lates VB shows Jan 2015 for EB1 India.

Post all the relevant details, otherwise we can't give you the right answers.

 

It seems like you are doing AOS and you had your interview at your local USCIS office. If that's the case, your file will be sent to TSC, it will be processed again after your PD becomes current. Trackitt has a lot of cases like yours waiting for AOS
