The Department of State has just released the June 2013 Visa Bulletin.  

This Visa Bulletin showed incredible progress in the EB-3 numbers for All Other and China, each of which moved ahead by more than one year.  China's EB-2 numbers also improved, moving forward by two months.

India's EB-3 finally progressed into 2003, but it looking like a ten year Indian EB-3 retrogression shortly will be with us unless there is Comprehensive Immigration Reform.  India EB-2 remained frozen.

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.

  1. Hello Sir

    If minimum education requirement mentioned in ETA 9080 for EB3 Schedule A RN is associate degree in Nursing but the applicant has education equivalent to diploma in nursing with all the other requirements(CGFNS, NCLEX-RN, Visascreen Cert.). Will it affect the USCIS processing, Can USCIS ask for RFE on the same.

  2. @ Yatra- This sounds like a very specific question that the lawyer who filed your case should be able to answer.

  3. I have the following questions :

    1. Does CGFNS accepts clubbed IELTS scores ( if both scores are valid ) ?

    2. Is it necessary to send the academic / license validations to CGFNS it we are renewing the visa screen within 6 months of its expiry ?

    If anybody is having such experiences, please share it with me with your email address
