January 2015 Visa Bulletin Released – Worldwide EB-3 Movement

The January 2015 Visa Bulletin was released by the Department of State today.  While family based cases moved forward about 1-2 months in each category, the major movement forward was for employment based category 3 (EB-3) – those sponsored by employers for Professional or skilled jobs.  In this category, the priority date moved forward from November 1, 2012 to June 1, 2013.   As this is a big movement, we would suggest those who are now eligible to file adjustment of status applications should do so as soon as possible.

For those from India and China waiting for EB-2 dates to move – there was no movement for India EB-2, and China EB-2 moved forward 1 month to February 2010.
