    MU Law Analysis

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

    China: The China EB-2 date again moved up one month. The China EB-3 again date progressed nearly six months, just as it did in the March 217 Visa Bulletin. The China EB-3 continues to have a more favorable date than EB-2, as a result of many Chinese EB-3 workers "upgrading" their applications to EB-2.

    India: EB-2 India moved up about 3 weeks, while EB-3 India stayed essentially the same, unfortunately.


    Mexico: Mirrors All Other in all aspects.

    Philippines: EB-3 moved ahead by nearly six more months. The Philippine EB-3 number essentially cleaned out most of the 2010, 2011, and 2012 EB-3 visas in less than 6 months. This is what we have 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.").
