MARCH 2013 VISA BULLETIN

The Department of State has just released the March 2013 Visa Bulletin.  This Visa Bulletin shows minor progress from last month's Visa Bulletin.

Overall, the news remains disappointing.  India EB-2 remained at September 1, 2004 for the fifth month.  The Philippine EB-3 date was equally disappointing, moving just one week, to September 1, 2006.

On the other hand, All Other and Philippine EB-2 dates remained Current.  The All Other EB-3 jumped continued to steadily progress, improving about six weeks. 

 As MU Law mentioned earlier, we expect the Philippine EB-2 number to remain Current or near Current until Spring/Summer 2013, when it should become unavailable as it does most Summers.
