The Department of State has just released the March 2015 Visa Bulletin. This is the sixth Visa Bulletin of the 2015 US Fiscal Year, which began October 1, 2014. This is one of the most favorable Visa Bulletins in years and likely reflects the decreased demand for US visas during the recession.

The biggest news is the continued progression of the Philippines EB-3, the Worldwide-All Other (ROW) EB-3 date and the Mexican EB-3 date. These are all now at June 2014, which is the closest to current they have been in many years.

India EB-2 had a jump in dates as well. It moved to January 2007, representing a 2 year increase int he last two months. Even India EB-3 reached a milestone, progressing into 2004.

The Chinese EB-2 and EB-3 number continued to move inconsistently. China EB-3 remains ahead of China EB-2 which has been the case for much of the last two years.
