MU Law Analysis

All Other: The EB-2 has been current for many years. The EB-3 progression continues, moving an additional one month. Consular processed EB-3 are effectively current.

China: The China EB-2 date again moved up, but only a few weeks. The China EB-3 again date progressed about six weeks. This was a smaller progression than the last few Visa Bulletins. The China EB-3 continues to have a more favorable date than EB-2, as a result of many historical Chinese EB-3 workers "upgrading" their applications to EB-2.

India: EB-2 India moved up about one day, which is the first one day progression that I can recall. EB-3 India stayed the same, unfortunately.
Mexico: Mirrors All Other in all aspects.

Philippines: EB-3 moved ahead by nearly four more months. The Philippine EB-3 number essentially cleaned out all of the 2010, 2011, and 2012 EB-3 visas in about 6 months. This is even more positive than we 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.").
