This months Visa Bulletin????

  1. Hi!
    Does anybody know why December 2006 Visa Bulletin is not out yet? Isn't it supposed to be released on the 10th of each month?

    Not quite sure why it matters when the December Bulletin comes out, we know already that the retrogression has started. No new news will be included there that we do not know already.

    And the next quarter is not until January, visas are only added in quarterly.

    Do you know something that we do not?

    Firtsly Suzanne, I did not appreciate your condescending reply, I understood I could ask questions and not expect to be talked down too!
    I thought this forum was for people who had limited knowledge about immigration issues, and I am sorry if I need to start getting answers to my questions, but some of us have sold our homes, sold our furniture and taking their husband and son, to live back with their parents, not knowing when we are to move! The Visa situation may not be a priority to you, but it is VERY important to me!
    And no, I dont know something that you do not!

    Many people who've worked for many years in US have stuck on retrogression. They suffer much more than you do!

    If you somehow feel you lose your immigration "privileges" temporialiy, you need to understand everything is determined by the supply and demand. Many americans jump to nursing for money, and foreigners jump to nursing for Greecard.

    And suzan is just here to help us! She is not to be answered by rude reply like yours.

    Sorry, I was not trying to offend you but there will not be anything in those bulletins for months for nurses, until there are more visas created and that is just done on a quarterly basis.

    I understand that many of you are stressed, etc., but I do try ro help.

    Believe me, when there will be any visas released for any country, you will read about it immediately. You are knew here, and when ever anything coems out dealing with immigration issues that pertain to nurses, we have it here first. We will know that visas have been appropriated before the bulletin is out.

    That is what I am trying to explain to you. Sorry if you took it the wrong way.

    I do not want to get into an argument with any body, but I do not believe I was not rude in my reply, just speaking my mind as a consenting adult! I appreciate Suzannes apology, but I keep hearing how there are more important issues to be tackled, (of which I am fully aware and understand) before the nurse shortage is addressed, along with the Green Card issue, but after, 10 years as a qualified nurse, working hard for what I have, I dont look forward to the prospect of living out of a suitcase! I just wanted an idea of when I may be going, and any papers, policies etc. that may give me a glimmer of hope, would help my optimism!
    I am not saying anybody has suffered any more, or any less for that matter than I have, but you have to understand, I am thinking of myself and my family, they are my concern.
    I have not applied to simply 'jump' for my Green Card, I am a dedicated nurse in the UK, of which will apply in the USA.
    Everybodies circumstances are different, and you dont know what individuals are going thru if you dont them. As I said, I was not being rude, just desperate for answers!

    And as I have kept stating, if you will take the time to look, there are visas that come out every quarter, which means four times a year, that is when more are added into the count as becoming available. Nothing is ever issued in between, this even goes for the 50,000 that were redistributed last year, that is how are system works.

    You will probably not see anything with your file until February, unless you had approval of everything by early October, but you never specified when your actual file was completed and sent to the US Embassy. Has it gotten that far yet? And if your agency, if you are going with one, told you anything differnt, then I suggest that you have a little discussion with them.
