FAMILY-sponsored categories (potential monthly movement)

Worldwide dates:
F1: Three or four weeks
F2A: Three to five weeks
F2B: Three to five weeks

EMPLOYMENT-based categories (potential monthly movement)

Employment First: Current

Employment Second:

Worldwide: Current

China: Three to six weeks

India: No movement. Despite the established cut-off date having been held for the past five months in an effort to keep demand within the average monthly usage targets, the amount of demand being received from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Offices for adjustment of status cases remains extremely high. Should the current rate of demand continue, it is likely that at some point the cut-off date will need to be retrogressed in an effort to hold demand within the FY-2013 annual limit.

Employment Third:

Worldwide: Four to six weeks
China: Two to three months
India: Up to two weeks
Mexico: Four to six weeks
Philippines: Up to one week
