December 2016 Visa Bulletin

DOS released the December Visa Bulletin. For the Application Final Action Dates, there is little movement across the board.  For EB-2 and EB-3 China, EB-3 remains ten months ahead (July 1, 2013 versus September 22, 2012) of EB-2. EB-2 India made modest gains, moving forward three months up to February 1, 2008 and EB-3 only to seven days to March 15, 2005. EB-3 Philippines inched two months forward at June 1, 2011. EB-1 remains current across all chargeability areas and EB-3, all other remains unmoved since last month at July 1, 2016. Again, USCIS has said they will accept the Dates for Filing Visa Applications, which allows for March 1, 2013 and May 1, 2014 priority date filings for EB-2 and EB-3 China, respectively. EB-2 India priority date holders with a April 22, 2009 or earlier date could file, as could EB-3 priority date holders with a July 1, 2005 date or earlier. The filing date for EB-3 Philippines also remains unmoved from last month at September 1, 2013.
