December 2009 Visa Bulletin

At some point MU expects that the Visa Bulletin numbers will progress in a meaningful way, but this month is not the month.

The December 2009 Visa Bulletin has no change in any Employment Based Visa Category, except for a slight uptick in India EB3. In the November 2009 Visa Bulletin showed 22APR01. It moved a week.

EB1: All Current
EB2: All Current, except China (01APR05) and India (22JAN05)
EB3: All 01JUN02, except India (01May01).

The one silver lining may be that, unlike in November 2009, the December 2009 did not include an explanation in the bulletin for the lack of progression in the dates. Here is November’s explanation:

E. EMPLOYMENT PREFERENCE VISA AVAILABILITY
The receipt of demand from Citizenship and Immigration Services Offices has far exceeded their earlier indications of cases eligible for immediate processing. As a result, it has been necessary to hold most of the Employment cut-off dates for November. At this time, it is not possible to provide any estimates regarding future cut-off date movements.
