Green Card Waiting Times Projections -- EB2 and Eb3 Categories for China
The following charts show projections of Green Card Waiting Times for EB-2 and EB-3 categories for China. The data for actual waiting time was calculated from Visa Bulletin publications available at http://www.travel.state.gov. The horizontal axis is the processing date (Visa Bulletin date) and the vertical axis is the waiting time in months. (If the waiting time for a certain date is zero, that means there was no waiting time.)
For example, the waiting time for China EB-2 on February 2010 was 56 months. So that means that if you had applied for the EB2 in June 2005 or earlier, your application would have been processed by February 2010. The chart shows two trend lines: linear projection and an exponential projection. The trend lines can be used to estimate the waiting time for recent applicants or for those yet to apply. For example, based on linear trend projection if you were to apply for EB3 in January 2017 your application will be processed approximately by June 2024 (a waiting time of approximately 91 months).
EB-1 calculation is not included because in recent years there was no waiting time for this visa preference. If you have any questions please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
