According to the November 2007 Visa Bulletin, 1st preference employment-based categories are all current, 2nd preference employment-base categories are current with the exception of China-mainland and India, and 3rd preference employment-based and other workers categories have all retrogressed. However, there has been no forward movement of the employment cut-off dates for November because it is too early for the Department of State (DOS) to determine what impact such movement may have on demand. Depending on the rate of demand received from the USCIS offices for adjustment of status cases, USCIS estimates that some forward movement of dates may be possible for December.
