Attorney Ricky Malik has dinner with Visa Bulletin Chief

On September 22, 2010, Attorney Ricky Malik attended a dinner sponsored by the American Immigration Lawyers Association hosting Charlie Oppenheim, Chief of the Immigrant Visa Control and Reporting Division, Bureau of Consular Affairs at the State Department. 

Mr. Oppenheim is responsible for publishing the monthly visa bulletin that informs millions of people around if their priority dates are current.  Mr. Oppenhiem was very insightful in explaining the intricacies of the visa system that is unfortunately limited by the low numbers of visas.

EB-2 India is expected to move slowly this next fiscal year at about the pace of 1 week per month.  EB-2 China a little faster. 

Interestingly, Mr. Oppenheim noted that he would unlikely designate whole categories Unavailable or "U" but would rather retrogress them further if a category is oversubscribed.
