The Department of State has just released the May 2015 Visa Bulletin. This is the eighth Visa Bulletin of the 2015 Fiscal Year.
The big news was the massive retrogression of the Philippines EB-3. This was completely unexpected. MU Law believes that the Philippine EB-3 retrogression is a temporary situation that should correct itself in the second half in 2015. Please read our blog post from April 14, 2015 for deeper analysis on the state of the Philippine EB-3.
The news was much better for the other categories. India EB-2 has progressed to April 15, 2008, although India EB-3 only moved up one week to January 15, 2004. All Other EB-3 moved into January 2015, which is also the date for Mexico’s EB-3.
China EB-2 improved to June 1, 2012 and EB-3 is now at May 1, 2011. Both of these dates continue to progress positively.
