MU Law Analysis

All Other: The EB-2 has been current for many years. The EB-3 progression continues. Consular processed EB-3 are effectively current.

China: The China EB-2 date moved up one month. The China EB-3 date also progressed about one month. The China EB-3 continues to have a more favorable date than EB-2, as a result of many Chinese EB-3 workers "upgrading" their applications to EB-2.

India: EB-2 India and EB-3 India stayed virtually the same, unfortunately.

Mexico: Mirrors All Other in all aspects.

Philippines: EB-3 moved ahead by another three months. The Philippine EB-3 number essentially cleaned out all 2010 EB-3 visas and much of the 2011 EB-2 visas in just five months. This is what we have expected. (Our note from September 2016: "This is consistent with internal MU Law analysis which sees this category progressing into 2013 by the Summer of 2017.").
