The Department of State has just released the January 2013 Visa Bulletin.**

Overall, the news again was disappointing. *India EB-2 remained at September 1, 2004 for the third month. *Our projection that the India EB-2 number will move forward is looking wrong, although the basis for the projection is the same: earlier big movements tend to lead to later big*movements. *

The Philippine EB-3 date was equally disappointing, remaining at August 15, 2006.

The good news category included news that the All Other and Philippine EB-2 date remained Current, and that All Other EB-3 jumped ahead two months. *As MU Law mentioned last month, we expect the*Philippine*EB-2 number to remain Current or near Current until Spring/Summer 2013, when it should become*unavailable*as it does most Summers.
