The Department of State has just issued the June 2020 Visa Bulletin. This is the ninth Visa Bulletin of Fiscal Year 2021. This blog post analyzes this month's Visa Bulletin.

MU Law Analysis

Both the Philippines and Worldwide (All Other) EB-3 continue to be current. Our opinion remains that these categories will stay current for the foreseeable future.

India EB-1 remains current, which continues to lead to extra visas will flowing down to India EB2 and EB3.  India EB-2 again moved ahead, this time by 4 months, a positive trend that has continued.  EB-3 also jumped up.  It moved 4 months.  We will see favorable processing times for the rest of 2021.

China EB-2 and EB-3 again both moved forward by a few months, a trend that should continue. China EB-1 remains current, reflecting the paucity of visas that were issued under the last year of the Trump presidency and the COVID pandemic.


  1. Unfortunately USEmbassy in Manila, has not been issuing schedule for interview. Been ready since December 2020. its been 5 months already.If the reason is due to Covid-19, they should vaccinate all their staff, since vaccines are readily available and allow their clients to be have a negative result for covid prior to the scheduled interview..

  2. Hello Mu,

    I am sorry if this is not related to your post,

    I just want to ask if which one goes first the prevailing wage determination or advertisements?

    I am just confused with the statement given to me by the agency everytime I demand for any updates on my several months signed ETA.

    Thank you

  3. May I ask, my petitioner filed a new I-140. Which I am not aware. Which also means a new ds260 a new dq date. All this for the reason of choosing another facility which I was interviewed only last April 2021. My dq date was September 2020.

    My question, Can we still retain our previous dq date? If not, please enlighten me on why this happened.

    Would you recommend to choose another agency because of this?
