NOVEMBER 2017 VISA BULLETIN: ANALYSIS AND PREDICTIONS

Rate this Entry
by Chris Musillo

The Department of State has just issued the November 2017 Visa Bulletin. This is the second Visa Bulletin of Fiscal Year 2018. This blog post analyzes this month's Visa Bulletin.

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): China EB-1 reverted to Current. Our sense is that it will stay Current for much of the fiscal year. Both China EB-2 and EB-3 progressed 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. A few weeks ago, 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 number essentially cleaned out all of the 2010 through 2015 EB-3 visas in FY2017. The demand for Philippines EB-3 numbers increased dramatically in 2016-17. This increased demand will be the cause for slower progressions in the FY2018, probably progressing 1-2 months per Visa Bulletin.
