MU Law Analysis

All: These dates continue to be very favorable. We expect that All Other dates will continue to be positive for the foreseeable future.

China:
EB-2 progressed by one month. EB-3 has progressed almost one year in just the last few months. This is great news for this category.

India:
EB-2 jumped again. Four months ago it was 01MAY05. This represents a three-plus year movement in just four months. This trend may continue. EB-3 moved four weeks. Our sense is that EB3 will only move by weeks in the forthcoming months.

Mexico:
Mirrors All Other in all aspects.

Philippines:
EB-3 moved ahead two more months. MU Law believes that Philippines EB-3 will continue to steadily move forward in the coming months. We expect it to get into 2009 in the by this spring or early summer.


Dates of Filing

Applications with these priority dates should see their Consular Process application progress. The USCIS may allow filing of the I-485 Adjustment of Status, provided that the USCIS issues its monthly authorization.

MU Law Analysis

The Dates of Filing chart did not materially change from October or November 2015. This is not a surprise. The USCIS and Department of State have been sued in response to the September 2015 revised Visa Bulletin.

Our analysis is the same as described in our October 10, 2015 blog post.
