MU Law Analysis

Philippines and All Other EB-3 continued slow, although uninspiring, progress by one week to September 8, 2022. China and India EB-3 remained at their February Visa Bulletin dates, September 1, 2020 and July 1, 2012, respectively.

There is a similar story in EB-2. China and India EB-2 remained at their February Visa Bulletin dates, January 1, 2020 and March 1, 2012. Philippines and All Other EB-2 advanced one week to November 22, 2022.

MU Law expects similar progress in the next few months, followed by a slowdown and we get closer to the end of the fiscal year.
