    MU Law Analysis

    All Other: The EB-2 has been current for many years. The EB-3 progression continues, moving an additional one month. Consular processs EB-3 are effectively current.

    China: The DOS has instituted a retrogression for China EB-1. The continued high level of demand for EB-1 numbers for USCIS adjustment of status applicants has required the establishment of a date for June. It is expected that this EB-1 retrogression will last until October 2017.

    The China EB-2 date again moved up, but only a few weeks. The DOS notes that there has been an extremely large increase in EB-3s during the past month. The China EB-3 date is being held for the month of June. Continued heavy demand for numbers will require a retrogression of China EB-3 no later than August.

    India: As with China, India EB-1 now is retrogressed. It is expected that this EB-1 retrogression will last until October 2017.

    EB-2 India moved up about two weeks. EB-3 India actually moved up almost two months. It is our expectation that these two categories will move very slowly in the foreseeable future.

    Mexico: Mirrors All Other in all aspects.

    Philippines: EB-3 moved ahead by yet another four more months. The Philippine EB-3 number essentially cleaned out all of the 2010, 2011, 2012, and half of 2013 EB-3 visas in about 6 months. This is even more positive than we expected. (Our note from September 2016: "This is consistent with internal MU Law analysis which sees this category progressing into 2013 by the Summer of 2017.").
