The April 2014 visa bulletin was released late last week.   For the Employment based categories, China 2nd Preference moved to March 8, 2009 and 3rd Preference worldwide, China and Mexico moved up a month to October 1, 2012.  India Second and Third Preference stayed the same and Philippines 3rd Preference also moved up a month to June 15, 2007.

In terms of Family numbers, F1 numbers moved up about 20 days to February 22, 2007 for Worldwide, India and China and to November 1, 1993 for Mexico and November 1, 2001 for the Philippines.  F2A numbers stayed the same and F2B numbers moved forward almost two months to October 22, 2006 for Worldwide, China and India but stayed the same for Mexico and Philippines.  F3 numbers moved up about 1 month for Worldwide, China and India and about 1-2 weeks for Mexico (June 22, 1993) and Philippines (February 22, 1993).  And lastly, the F4 numbers moved up about 1 week for everyone.

The Department of State did not update its estimates of movement that it put out last month, but so far, they are following those estimates fairly closely.
