MU Law Analysis



All Other: The EB-2 has been current for many years. The EB-3 remains at Feb 15, 2016, jsut as it was last month. These dates continue to be very favorable. We expect that All Other dates will continue to be positive for the foreseeable future.

China: Neither Chinese category moved this month. This May Visa Bulletin included a note on Chinese EB categories:

CHINA E3: There has been an extremely large increase in Employment Third preference applicant demand in recent weeks. This is likely due to the “downgrading” of status by applicants who had originally filed in the Employment Second preference. This has resulted in the Third preference final action date being held for the month of May. Continued heavy demand for numbers will require a retrogression of this date for June to hold number use within the FY-2016 annual limit.

India: EB-2 and EB-3 moved ahead a few weeks.

Mexico: Mirrors All Other in all aspects.

Philippines: EB-3 moved ahead three more months. MU Law believes that Philippines EB-3 will continue to steadily move forward in the coming months. We expect it to move into 2009 in the by 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.
