The April 2013 Visa Bulletin contains some welcome news for certain persons immigrating through the employment-based preference categories. The worldwide EB-3 category advances 2 months, 3 months for persons born in the PRC and 2 weeks for those born in India.
The news on the EB-2 category is mixed. While EB-2 worldwide remains current and EB-2 PRC advances six weeks, EB-2 India does not move forward at all.
The family-based categories all advance slowly, from one to five weeks. The only exception is the first preference category (unmarried adult sons and daughters of US citizens) Philippines which advances four months.
The charts below tell the story in more detail.
