what do you think is the chance for those with PD's of 2005-2006? any chance for us in the coming 2011 fiscal year this october?
@Sanj: I don't think so, but perhaps by early 2011.ReplyDelete
@ Jennifer- I think there is a very good chance of those PDs becoming current in 2011.ReplyDelete
Chris,I was wondering with the delay with CIR 2010, will the 2 nurse relief bills in house pass this year?ReplyDelete
Hi Nikki- See the next blog posting...ReplyDelete
Since the FY 2010 would soon end this sept and a new FY is gonna open this oct, is there still a possibility that PD's may retrogress further than it is now or is their a chance that it could open with 2005 or even 2006 PD'S?
my application is now on packet3 witha priority date of nov 2006. i recently found out that my employer just closed their office. will this affect my application?
