MARCH 2014 VISA BULLETIN

The Department of State has just released the February 2014 Visa Bulletin.  This is the fifth Visa Bulletin of the 2014 US Fiscal Year, which began on October 1, 2013.  

The All Other Countries EB-3 date jumped about 6 months.  It has now moved an incredible 25 months in the last 90 days!   

The Philippine EB-3 numbers also progressed nicely, advancing about 3 months.  This is the  largest EB-3 jump in some time.

The Chinese EB-2 and EB-3 continued to be flipped: the Chinese EB-2 is worse than the Chinese EB-3.  Chinese nationals who are BE-2 may be able to file an EB-3.  Chinese EB-3s should check with their attorneys to effect this change.The Chinese EB-3 mirrors the All Other EB-3.

Unfortunately India EB-2 and India EB-3 remained basically stuck at the same dates from the December 2013 Visa Bulletin.   India EB-3 moved one week.

The full chart is at the end of the post.

The Visa Bulletin also included some predictions on future progression:


EMPLOYMENT-based categories (potential monthly movement)
Employment First:  Current
Employment Second:
Worldwide:  Current
China:  Three to five weeks
India:  No forward movement
Employment Third:
Worldwide:  This cut-off date has been advanced over four and one half years since last spring in an effort to generate new demand. After such a rapid advance of a cut-off date applicant demand for number use, particularly for adjustment of status cases, can be expected to increase significantly. Once such demand begins to materialize at a greater rate it could have a significant impact on this cut-off date situation. Little, if any forward movement of this cut-off date is likely during the next few months. 
China:  Will remain at the worldwide date
India:  Little if any movement
Mexico:  Will remain at the worldwide date
Philippines:  Three to six weeks

  2. Hi Chris,
    Good evening to you. I have been monitoring my visa situation on our website, musillo.com. I know my priority date is July 27, 2007 and that right now USCIS is processing May 1, 2007(correct me if im wrong). I don't know if I have asked this before, but I just wanted to ask if when my priority date is current, what is the next step? How long will it be till I get my green card and will I need to submit anything else.
    Also, do you guys have an email address. I had a few other questions i wanted to ask in private.thank you.

  3. Hi Lynda,
    Is your case a Consular Process case or an Adjustment of Status?

  5. How this works pertaining to almost all customers is usually you do not must very concern yourself with whether or not a card is usually Master card or perhaps carte visa. Choosing greater away concentrating on the interest and other costs on the cards, the balance transfer possibilities or perhaps his or her pay back structure. You might be most unlikely in order to ever be effected by means of the fact it truly is one instead of additional.
