Immigrant visas cut-off dates advance for Philippines due to decreased demand

The recent decreased demand for both employment-based and family-based immigrant visas for the Philippines has caused the visa cut-off dates to advance, according to Charles Oppenheim, Chief of the Visa Control and Reporting Division for the U.S. Department of State (DOS).

Most significantly, the October cut-off date for the Employment-based 3rd Preference and "Other Worker" categories for the Philippines is 10/01/2011, the same as (or as fast as) the Other Countries.
