JANUARY 2015 VISA BULLETIN

The Department of State has just released the January 2015 Visa Bulletin.  This is the fourth Visa Bulletin of the 2015 US Fiscal Year, which began October 1, 2014.  

The Philippines EB-3 yet has again had a substantial progression.  It is now at June 2013, which is a progression of six more months.  It remains consistent with the All Other (ROW) EB-3 date and the Mexican EB-3 date.

India EB-2 remained stuck at February 2005.  The India EB-2 date retrogressed by four years recently and it does not appear  that any meaningful progression is imminent.  India EB-3 continued to move ahead at a snail's pace.  It is December 2003.

The Chinese EB-2 and EB-3 number continued to move inconsistently.  China EB-3 remains ahead of China EB-2 which has been the case for much of the last two years.

  2. @Sanj- Yes. If a nurse is lawfully in the US and has the I-140 approved, then they will be able to file the I-485. However, it is unknown when this rule will go into effect.

  4. When you file the I-485, you will also want to file an EAD. The EAD takes 90 days (approx) for approval. Upon approval, you can work!
