April Visa Bulletin
March 12, 2010
Another disappointing month in April's Visa Bulletin released today by the State Department. Very slight movement and only in a few categories. EB-1, and EB-2 visas for nationalities except China and India remain current. EB-2 visas for Chinese nationals advanced 1.5 months, and will be available for priority dates of August 22, 2005 or earlier; no movement for Indian nationals who still need priority dates of February 1, 2005 or earlier. EB-3 visas for all except India, Mexico and the Philippines advanced 1.5 months to February 1, 2003. EB-3 Mexican nationals saw no advancement and still need priority dates of July 1, 2002 or before. EB-3 for the Philippines advanced 1.5 months to February 1, 2003.
This month, the State Department has added some more "explanations" of the complicated monthly number crunching process in its Visa Bulletin and summary of visa allotment.
