The Department of State has just released the July 2013 Visa Bulletin.  This is the first of the three fiscal-year fourth quarter Visa Bulletins.  The US Fiscal Year ends on September 30, 2013.



This Visa Bulletin continue to show steady progress in the EB-3 numbers for All Other and China.  We are now into 2009 for both categories.   




India's EB-3 remained in January 2003. India EB-2 remained frozen at September 2004.  The Philippines EB-3 modestly improved to October 2006.










As MU Law mentioned earlier, 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.
