The Department of State has just released the March 2013 Visa Bulletin.  This Visa Bulletin shows minor progress from last month's Visa Bulletin.

Overall, the news remains disappointing.  India EB-2 remained at September 1, 2004 for the fifth month.  The Philippine EB-3 date was equally disappointing, moving just one week, to September 1, 2006.

On the other hand, All Other and Philippine EB-2 dates remained Current.  The All Other EB-3 jumped continued to steadily progress, improving about six weeks. 

 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.
