I have heard that only those individuals from India and China are subject to quota backlogs. I was not born in one of those countries. Do quota backlogs apply to me?

Yes, quota backlogs can apply to everyone regardless of where an individual is born. While in the past the backlogs have typically affected nationals of certain countries more than others, the backlogs apply to all countries for the EB-3 preference category and some countries for the EB-2 preference category. This can change and one should review the Visa Bulletin to determine eligibility for adjustment of status or consular processing.
