there were so many anxious questions here about the avaialability of 50,000 new visas alloted for schedule a occupation (nurse/pts)..
here is the good news from one of the trusted immigration law firms here in us. their take is, it will be avaialble through out fiscal year 2006.
this is the extract from oh law firm (http://www.immigration-law.com/
what about schedule a numbers?the 50,000 schedule a numbers will provide relief to many employment preference applicants, since any schedule a applicant whose priority date is beyond the relevant employment preference cut-off date can be processed and charged against the 50,000 limit. it is expected that schedule a numbers will be available on a “current” basis throughout all of fy-2006
as regulars in this site know, shusterman.com, another highly respected california based law firm has predicted (in last may) that it would be enough for 2-3 years.
dos itself mentioned that, this 50 k visa numbers are enough for the foreseable future..
