HIGHLIGHTS FROM CHECK-IN WITH CHARLIE REGARDING JULY VISA BULLETIN

EB-1 Worldwide remains current in July and should remain so through the end of this fiscal year.

 

EB-1 India  advances significantly, moving forward eleven months from June 8, 2016, to May 8, 2017.

 

EB-2 Worldwide (including El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, Mexico, Philippines, and Vietnam) remains current in July and should do so through FY2020.

 

EB-2 China and EB-2 India will certainly exceed their per country limits this year. The open question is how close the EB-2 category will be to reaching its worldwide limits.

 

EB-3 Worldwide (including El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, Mexico, Philippines, and Vietnam) and EB-3 Worldwide Other Workers (including El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, Mexico, Philippines, and Vietnam) which advanced more than ten months in June, advances at a significant yet slower five month pace in July 2020 from November 8, 2017, to April 15, 2018.
