May 2014 Visa Bulletin: Inching Forward

imagesThe May 2014 visa bulletin has been released and in many of the categories there has been little to no movement.  So, without further ado, lets run through the dates:

Employment Based:

Eb-1 is still current for all.

Eb-2 is still current for all except India (which is still at 11/15/2004) and China (which progressed to 4/15/2009).

Eb-3  is still at 10/1/2012 for most of the world, and at 10/1/03 for India and 9/1/07 for the Philippines

Family Based:

F1 (unmarried sons and daughters of US Citizens):  Has moved forward about two weeks to 3/8/07 except for Mexico (11/15/93) and the Philippines (2/1/02)

F-2A (spouses and children of PRs):  Unchanged

F-2B (Unmarried sons and daughters of PRs):  Probably the biggest jump (about 4 months) to 2/1/07 for all except Mexico (5/15/93) and the Philippines (6/22/03)

F-3 (Married sons and daughters of Citizens):  Moved forward about 2 months to 9/1/03 for all except Mexico (7/1/93) and the Philippines (3/1/93)

F-4 (brothers and sisters of Citizens):  Moved Forward about 2 weeks to 12/8/01 except for Mexico 12/1/96 and the Philippines 11/1/90

That is the run down.  In terms of projections, the DOS believes that the F-2A category will start to retrogress in the coming months because of heavy demand.
