MU Law Analysis

Once again, there was good news and bad news for the retrogressed EB2 and EB3 categories.  The DOS did not move the Indian and Chinese EB-3s.  On the other hand, the dates for India and China EB-2, progressed.  India EB-2 moved ahead by a bit over two months.  China EB-2 advanced by three weeks.  These progressions were about half of the progressions that we saw with the December Visa Bulletin.

The story remains positive for Philippines and Worldwide EB-3, where dates held at Current.  They are expected to stay Current for the foreseeable future.

  1. Hello MU Law. Can I file a formal complaint to the Office of the Inspector General against the NVC and the Embassy in Manila because of unfair scheduling of interviews? They were saying that interviews are being scheduled based on the order that the cases complete processing in the NVC, but we have seen cases with DQ dates of March 2021 being scheduled earlier than those with DQ dates of January 2021. Isn't this a form of abuse of discretion? Thank you
