Carl Shusterman's Immigration Update

June 2013 Visa Bulletin

Rate this Entry

The Visa Bulletin for June 2013 contains great news for those waiting in line under the worldwide employment-based third category (professionals, skilled and unskilled workers).

After advancing 5 months in May, worldwide EB-3 jumps forward 10 more months to September 1, 2008. In contrast, the India EB-3 priority date advances only 2 weeks. The EB-3 category for the Philippines moves ahead only 1 week.

The worldwide EB-2 category remains current (no backlog), but while EB-2 PRC advances 8 weeks, EB-2 India does not move at all.

The Senate CIR bill would eliminate all per-country EB quotas.

Write your Senators and Representatives now, and ask them to support this important modification to our broken immigration system!

The worldwide family-based preference 2A category moves forward almost 4 months while the F4 sibling category which remains at May 1, 2001. Other worldwide family-based categories advance between 3 and 7 weeks. Family categories for the Philippines advance somewhat faster especially the F1 category which sprints ahead 7 months. Family-based waiting times for Mexico barely advance at all.
