AILA’s “Check In with Charlie” is a monthly discussion with the Department of State’s officer who sets the monthly Visa Bulletin. This month’s Check In revealed that Charlie thinks that EB-3 China, EB-3 India and EB-3 Philippines all have the potential to move forward a few months in September. Whether or not the dates move will depend on demand for EB-3 Worldwide through early August.
Charlie also predicts EB-3 Worldwide and EB-3 Mexico will continue to advance in September. He expects that these categories dates may hold steady starting in October for a month or two. This will allow the DOS to see if greater demand from the recent advancement of the cut-off date results in these categories.
India and China EB-2 is expected to remain unchanged for the next month.
