Due to high demand, the Department of State has made the China and India EB2 visa category completely “unavailable” as of May 2012.  Visa numbers will continue to be unavailable for Chinese and Indian EB2 applicants until October 1, 2012, when the next fiscal year begins.  According to the Department, current indications are that availability for these categories will not return to a May 1, 2010, cut-off date before spring 2013.  Further, based on the current demand, the Department may need to establish a cutoff date for the EB1 preference category for China and India, as well, at the end of fiscal year 2012.
