May Visa Bulletin
April 9, 2010
The Department of State has released the May 2010 Visa Bulletin today. EB-1 visas remain current for all nationalities. EB-2 visas remain current for all nationalities except China and India. EB-2 visas for Chinese nationals advanced 1 month, and will be available for priority dates of September 22, 2005 or earlier. Unfortunately, there was no forward movement for Indian nationals who still need priority dates of February 1, 2005 or earlier to be processed in this category.
Meanwhile, EB-3 visas for Chinese nationals have advanced a little more than 1.5 months and will require a priority date of April 22, 2003 or earlier. EB-3 visas for Indian nationals have advanced just under a month, requiring a priority date of October 1, 2001 or earlier. Mexican nationals take a hit this month, with EB-3 visas becoming completely unavailable to them. EB-3 visas for all other nationalities, including Philippine nationals, have advanced over 2 months, requiring a priority date of April 22, 2003.
