EB3 Other Worker Category Exhausted!

The EB-3 Other Worker category has finally been exhausted and as of today the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has notified the Texas and Nebraska Service Centres to reject EB-3 Other Worker adjustment applications.

The EB-3 “Other Workers” Category was supposed to have been declared Unavailable in June 2007 itself, but was left open for the month as a limited number of visas were found to be unused. While the announcement has cought some people unawares, as the June Visa Bulletin showed the category to be available, the announcement was expected.
