May 2016 Visa Bulletin Released

The visa bulletin for May 2016 was released and there has been very little movement.  I have included some highlights below followed by the actual charts.  Please note that, for this month, USCIS has indicated that they will be using the final action dates for both employment and family based cases, so these are the only charts we will discuss.

Family Based:

  • F1:  Everywhere moved forward by about 2 months.
  • F2:  Forward movement of about 1 month.
  • F3:  Forward movement of about 2.5 months.
  • F4:  Forward movement of about 1 week.
  • F5:  No movement
