The retrogression of the Philippines EB-3 continues. To insure that no Philippine EB-3 visas are issued, the Department of State has made the Philippine EB-3 number Unavailable. This means that no Philippine EB-3 visas can be issued this fiscal year. The next fiscal year starts on October 1, 2015.
This cannot be good news, although MU still believes that the dates will progress with the start of FY 2016. Please read our blog post from May 19 for deeper analysis on the state of the Philippine EB-3.
India EB-2 remained at October 1, 2008. India EB-3 only moved up one week to February 1, 2004. All Other EB-3 moved ahead two months to April 15, 2015, which is also the date for Mexico’s EB-3.
China EB-2 improved another five months to October 1, 2013 and EB-3 remained at September 1, 2011.
