    Well my I-140 is being prepared for filing as we speak & if I've read the recent bulletin correctly it's not just the PIC countries that are affected this time.

    I'm hoping that by the time all my papers are sorted something will have been done to ease the situation & I'lll still be in the USA within the usual 12 month(ish) time it normally takes from the UK once you've passed N-CLEX & started the immigration process!

    Yes, every foreign nurse should see things half-full instead of half-empty.:wink2:

    The last retrogresion only lasted 6-7 months before it was lifted. Foreign nurses should just just keep accomplishing all necessary exams and req'ts during these times.
    Hi. As you said it only took an average of 6 mos. before it was lifted but is the case similar to the situation now? Right now, as ms. suzanne keeps on telling, everybody's busy preparing for the upcoming elections yada yada... So I guess 6 mos. is just a dream (sigh)

    I remember that it hit us on October 2004. Then it was lifted on July 2005 after Bush signed a bill for the recapture of visas in May. You can expect something by the summer of next year.

    Well, I feel so depressed! Just collected my packet 4 on the 29th of oct and they regretted to inform me that my priority date fell on oct 3rd. Just two days are going to change everything for me

    Do you mean they gave you the packet 4 but there's no scheduled date yet for interview because of your PD? What exactly the consulate wrote you?

    yes, they told me they cannot schedule me for an interview because of my PD. They gave me the packet 4, but they asked me not to proceed with the medical and police clearance formalities until further informed{as the medical expires in 3 months}

    Oh I see, because of your PD. My packet 4 arrived last 2 weeks ago, our PD is July 2005, although the consulate instructed me to proceed for medicals which I have done last week and coming interview. For sure visa nos. is alloted for me even if there's retrogressed date. Consulate will never instruct us to do beyond their reasonable doubt if visa will not be issued unless otherwise problems occur from medicals or incomplete documents. Anyway, wait and see for this week's bulletin till next week...

    This thread is more than 15 months old and a wave of visas did come thru in June, they were recapped and have been used up already.

    Closing this thread due to age.
