June 2017 Visa Bulletin: EB-1 India and China No Longer Current



As predicted previously, a cutoff date of June 1, 2012, has been imposed on EB-1 India and EB-1 China in June's Visa Bulletin, representing retrogression of about five years.  This cutoff date is not likely to be permanent but may stay for the near future.  Applicants in these two categories can still file their immigrant visa or adjustment applications in May.  EB-3 Philippines advances four months to May 1, 2013.   

Family immigration categories generally have decent forward movements in June. For examples, 
F-1 Philippines and Mexico both advance 2.5 months.  F-2A China, India, Philippines and Other Countries all move forward by one month.
