Hello! I'm just curious if f2a will retrogress by oct 2013 how will it move forward? Is it by 4-8 weeks?[confused]
Up! This is my exact same question....!
The prediction is like music to my ears. But then, another question arises..... How fast will be the movement? Any predictions on this one??
It would depend on the volume of application received by USCIS. Some months may have more demand than other months. It could be 1 - 3 months movement. If volume is high, it could drop to just 3 weeks per month.

Thanks! 3 weeks movement is still good news than a few days movement! If it'll be on Nov 2012.. [-o<
Last 2 questions though, how high is the percentage that the cutoff will be on Sept-Nov 2012? And are there any possibilities of retro to 2011? Since I've been seeing a lot of 2011 peeps that still doesn't have IL or even case completion..:-k
Yes it heavily depends on them processing older cases by Sept 30 as mentioned in http://blog.mygcvisa.com/2013/08/october-2013-visa-bulletin-predictions.html
If they have too many applications with older PD, it could retrogress much further.
I have updated the blog post so that it is more clear.
Hi amazon! I know some people with oct.- dec 2011 pd who haven't even received their noa2 yet and jan-july 2012 people who are not yet case complete like me. Do you think this will affect the october visa bulletin? How far will retrogression go? Any updates? Thank you [biggrin]
Please see this:
It mentions various possibilities depending on how USCIS processes cases with older PD and how many cases they are able to process.
Pls correct me if i am wrong.
According to the statistics, there are 12.687 cases pendig at VSC as of June 30th.
Does this mean, that until this date there were only this amount of people waiting for approval?
About a month ago it was over 120.000.
How many people work at VSC approximately on cases like this?
How many can they approve a day approximately?
Lets say there are at least 25 people working on I-130 forms, and they can approve lets say 30 applications every day.
Doing the math, the remaining 12.687 applications should be approved in 16-17 business days.
Is my calculation absolutely wrong or is it close to the truth?
Thanks, have a great night.
I have updated the blog post with latest data: http://blog.mygcvisa.com/2013/08/uscis-fb-i-485-i-130-processing.html
It is now 128,805 (looks like someone had a typo).
The exact number of people working in each service center is unknown. However they added around 200 people at VSC few months back to help with processing cases. The time to process each application is different (due to many factors involved). Some make take less than 4 months, some may take more than 6 months.
