I-140 EB-3 Processing at Nebraska Service Center Delayed

The current Processing Time Report for the Nebraska Service Center (NSC)(as of September 30, 2008) indicate that they are processing I-140 (EB-3) petitions filed on or before August 2, 2007. However, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has learned from NSC that they are still processing cases filed from July 1, 2007 through August 2, 2007, and it will be a couple of months before the cases filed during the 2007 Visa Bulletin “window of opportunity” are fully in process.

Notwithstanding the posted processing dates, the liaison committee recommends continued patience for cases filed through August 17, 2007, and suggests that inquiries be withheld until the reported processing date for EB-3 I-140s reaches October 2007.
