NEW VISA BULLETIN RELEASED

Rate this Entry

Here's the quick and dirty:



F1 jumps two weeks for each category (except Mexico which jumps forward a month).



F2A jumps forward two months for each category (except Mexico remains unavailable).



F2B jumps forward six weeks for each category (except one week for Mexico and three weeks for the Philippines).



F3 jumps forward one week for each country (except three weeks for the Philippines).



F4 categories move forward one to two weeks each.



EB-1 categories all remain current.



EB-2 is current for all except India and China which each jump forward two months to 1 August 2006.



EB-3 continues to be unavailable for all countries.



EB-4 and EB-5 remain current.



DOS has issued this warning with respect to Mexican family and employment numbers:

The Mexico F2A and Employment Third preference cut-off dates are "unavailable" for
both August and September, since those FY-2008 annual limits have been reached.
The Visa Office had originally anticipated that this would be a temporary situation.
Then with the start of the new fiscal year in October the cut-off dates would have
returned to those which had applied during June. However, continued heavy demand
in those categories may require the establishment of cut-off dates which are earlier
than those which had applied in June. A formal decision determination of the October
cut-off dates will not be possible until early September.
