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

The Philippines EB-3 continued to move steadily. It is now into 2008.

The Chinese EB-2 and EB-3 are no longer inverted. The Chinese EB-3 moved all the way back to October 2006. It remains to be seen if the Chinese EB-2 and EB-3 swap places again in the next US fiscal year, which starts October 1, 2014.

The All Other EB-3 moved back as well. It is now April 2011. Our sense is that it will not progress until the next US fiscal year.

The Indian numbers basically remained the same.
