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

The Philippines EB-3 jumped again. It is now at June 2010, which is a three year jump in the last three months.

India EB-2 also moved forward. It progressed to January 2009.

The Chinese EB-3 number continued to move dramatically and inconsistently. It is now at November 2008.

The All Other EB-3 held steady as well. It remains at April 2011. Our sense is that it will not progress until the next US fiscal year.
