My I-130 also got approved under F2A category . My PD was June 2013 and case was with California Service Center. So, it appears I-130 petitions are moving fast.

Wow.
congrats for you guys.
Did you ask for expedite process? or just simply approved? Citizen or LPR?

I'm not even aware of any option for expediting the process. It was just a normal filing for LPR. Hope it helps.

Congrats Ankit - that is great news. I had expected USCIS to process June 2013 PD

http://blog.mygcvisa.com...-i130-noa2-approval.html 

Based on data from EB category, USCIS is approving some applications in 2 months.
Please remember to add your case to the GC tracker: http://www.mygcvisa.com/tracker

@Amazon: does this mean, that those who filed the I130 prior to October, will get approved and get an available visa in the f2a category? Even if you get approved lets say september 30th, you ll still be transferred to NVC and get the GC, not taking the new priority dates into consideration from October?
(This is from the new visa bulletin)

F2A: This category was made β€œCurrent” in an effort to generate new demand for the upcoming fiscal year. Information received during discussions with the National Visa Center and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services indicates that this action is already having the intended result. Therefore, it is likely that a cut-off will be imposed for October. This cut-off is unlikely to have any negative impact on those who have already initiated action on their case prior to the announcement of the October cut-off dates.

I cannot help it but to feel a little somber. It seems that in an attempt to generate enough demand at NVC, USCIS has started to process certain applications randomly from the most recent cases file to generate a wave of I-485s and use up the quote.

I am very happy for those who are getting their applications approved but I feel sad that those of us who filed last year seem to be out of luck and we will see the process retrogress again. Before the F2A was set to current, the priority dates were October 2011. Hope it moves forward a little bit when they set the new date by next month.

Don't worry you guys too, might very well get your I 130 approvals and catch the I 485 train.πŸ˜„ It is still up for grabs as there is still one and a half months left (until sept 30th). Just have your AOS application packet ready so that as soon as you get your I 130 approvals, you can send them right away.

I think I read somewhere F2A may retrogress back to Sept 2012, but then again, we'll have to wait and watch.
Good Luck to all of us!

I think not.. You still need to have your case completed at NVC to be able to benefit from the VB being current..
