The US Department of State (DOS) has updated the Visa Bulletin for June 2021. As mentioned by Charles Oppenheim, Chief of the Immigrant Visa Control Unit of the US Department of State (DOS) in the May Visa Bulletin Youtube Live Chat, EB2 and EB3 India are progressing significantly. EB2 dates have been advanced for 12 months and 20+ days this fiscal year, excluding June bulletin dates, while EB3 dates have been advanced for 15 months and 26+ days. Charlie Oppenheim will be live on Youtube Chat in the coming days.
While not all of the 262,000 immigrant visa numbers may be used by the end of the USCIS fiscal year in 2021, this progress is encouraging.
