May 2013 Visa Bulletin Is Out

• EB-3 cut-off dates advance across the board — ranging from 1 week to over 7 months (CHINA – mainland born).

• EB-2 for mainland China also moved forward by 1.5 months, while still no movement for EB-2 India — stuck at September 1, 2004.

"The Employment-based Third preference category cut-off date for most countries has advanced significantly.  This has been done in an attempt to generate demand so that the annual numerical limits may be fully utilized, and such movements may continue for the next few months.  The rapid movement of cut-off dates is often followed months later by a dramatic increase in demand for numbers.  Once such demand begins to materialize the cut-off date movements will begin to slow or stop."
