If you have not done it, please remember to add or update your I-130/NVC/I-140/I-485 case in the free GC tracker: http://www.mygcvisa.com/ tracker/

It would be very useful to understand how USCIS is currently processing these cases. It would also help in estimating date movements in future visa bulletin.

The dates above have been calculated from data provided by USCIS/DOS. It does not include future demand (which can increase or decrease anytime). Hence data will keep changing every month. We will update these tables as we get more data from USCIS or DOS.

Similar to EB3 category movement, we have previously added a blog post for EB2 category forward movement. Please click here for FB category.
