The Department of State has just released the January 2013 Visa Bulletin. This is the fourth Visa Bulletin of the 2014 US Fiscal Year, which began on October 1, 2013.

The All Other Countries EB-3 date jumped again. It has now moved 19 months in the last two calendar months. The Chinese EB-2 and EB-3 continued to be flipped: the Chinese EB-2 is worse than the Chinese EB-3. Chinese nationals who are BE-2 may be able to file an EB-3. Chinese EB-3s should check with their attorneys to effect this change.

Unfortunately India EB-2 and India EB-3 remained stuck at the same dates from the December 2013 Visa Bulletin. The Philippine EB-3 did advance 5 weeks.

Here is this month's complete chart:
