The Department of State has just released the September 2010 Visa Bulletin. Again, there has been a notable promotion of priority dates.

The relevant dates are:

EB-1 - all current
EB-2 - all current, except China (08 MAR 06) and India (08 MAY 06)
EB-3 - all 15 DEC 04, except China (22 OCT 03), India (01 JAN 02), and Mexico (U)

Notes on specific countries:

China: China EB2 improved by two months since the August Visa Bulletin. China EB3 remained the same.

India: India EB2 improved by two months. There was excellent progress in India EB2, which has now jumped 15 months since the May 2010 Visa Bulletin from 01 FEB 05. India EB3 however did not move from the August 2010 Visa Bulletin.

Philippines: The Philippines' Priority Dates remain with the All Chargeability countries, which is a good sign. The EB3 has leapt ahead in recent months. It may move to 2005 in October.
