    MU Law Analysis

    All Other: The EB-2 has been current for many years. The EB-3 is also current and is expected to remain current for the foreseeable future.

    China (mainland-born): Both China EB-2 and EB-3 progressed about one month. The China EB-3 remains more favorable than Chinese EB-2. The odd situation of China EB-3 progressing faster than China EB-2 will remain to be the case for the foreseeable future.

    India: India EB-2 progressed about one month, which is what we except the monthly progressions will be in FY 2018. Unfortunately, India EB-3 did not move. Recently, the DOS said that EB-3's progression will be "limited." MU suspects that EB-3 will not progress at any notable rate until at least the India EB-3 date moves past the Visa Gate date of August 2007.

    Mexico: Mirrors All Other in analysis.

    Philippines: The Philippine EB-3 date stayed in January 2016, reflecting the fact that demand for the Philippine EB-3s recommenced heavy demand in 2016. This increased demand will be the cause for slower progressions in the FY2018, progressing no more than 1-2 months per Visa Bulletin.
