MU Law Analysis

All dates remained the same as in the October 2022 Visa Bulletin. USCIS has stated that the USCIS expects retrogression in India EB2 in the coming months due to high demand. It remains to be seen if India EB-3 will also retrogress at some point.

The WW and Philippine EB-3 remain current. We expect these categories to be current through the fiscal year.

EB-3 Other Workers, which is the category for occupations that require less than two years of education or experience to perform the job, remains retrogressed but did move forward from May 2019 to June 2020 for Philippines and ROW. We do not expect further retrogression in these two categories.
