VISA AVAILABILITY IN THE COMING MONTHS
FAMILY-sponsored categories (potential monthly movement)
Worldwide dates:
F1:  Three to five weeks
F2A: No forward movement, the Mexico cut-off date is likely to retrogress
at some point
F2B: Three to five weeks
F3:  Three to five weeks
F4:  Two or three weeks
EMPLOYMENT-based categories (potential monthly movement)
Employment First:  Current
Employment Second:
Worldwide:  Current
China:  Three to five weeks 
India:  No forward movement
Employment Third:
Worldwide:  This cut-off date has been advanced extremely rapidly during the past seven months in an effort to generate new demand.  As the rate of applicants who are able to have action on their cases finalized increases, it could have a significant impact on the cut-off date situation.  The rapid forward movement of this cut-off date should not be expected to continue beyond February.
China:        Expected to remain at the worldwide date
India:        No forward movement
Mexico:       Expected to remain at the worldwide date
Philippines:  Three to six weeks
Employment Fourth: Current
Employment Fifth:  Current
The above projections for the Family and Employment categories are for what is likely to happen during each of the next few months based on current applicant demand patterns.  Readers should never assume that recent trends in cut-off date movements are guaranteed for the future, or that "corrective" action will not be required at some point in an effort to maintain number use within the applicable annual limits.  The determination of the actual monthly cut-off dates is subject to fluctuations in applicant demand and a number of other variables.  Unless indicated, those categories with a "Current" projection will remain so for the foreseeable future.
