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: Both India EB-2 and EB-3 progressed about two weeks, which is about what we expect that the monthly progressions will be in FY 2018. 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 moved one month, after not moving in the December 2017 Visa Bulletin. Because of increased demand will expect slower progressions in the FY2018, progressing no more than 1-2 months per Visa Bulletin.
