The May Visa Bulletin has been released by the Department of State and things are looking up for those in the EB-3 category with large advancements for Chinese, Mexican, and all other chargeability area nationals.

With regard to the EB-2 category, Chinese nationals will experience over a one month advancement from April 1, 2008 to May 15, 2008; while Indian nationals remain at September 1, 2004, which has not changed since the end of 2012. In the meantime, Mexican, Filipino, and nationals from all other areas of chargeability remain current in EB-2 through May of 2013.

All of those in the EB-3 category will see advancements in their priority dates. Chinese, Mexican, and all other chargeability areas will see large advancements of up to eight months, while Indian nationals will an advancement of 14 days.

As always, due to the fear of retrogression, its vitally important that I-485 applications be filed in the first month of visa availability. If your priority date is current or will become current based on the May 2013 visa bulletin, please contact our office.
