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

The biggest news is that the Philippine EB-3 number has surged ahead to November 2007, a promotion of almost six months. Other than that the Visa Bulletin dates remained approximately where they were in the April 2014 Visa Bulletin.

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 EB-2 may be able to file an EB-3. Chinese EB-3s should check with their attorneys to effect this change.The Chinese EB-3 mirrors the All Other EB-3.
