March 2008 Visa Bulletin // With Comments and Discussion
Hot off the press – March Visa Bulletin. I will post some commentary later today or tonight. Feel free to drop your comment below.
The most obvious development was the progress in the employment-based third preference (EB3). The cutoff date jumped ahead for “EB3 Philippines” and “EB3 All Chargeability Areas” (everywhere but China, India or Mexico).
What did the notes of the March visa bulletin say about this movement?
The cut-off date movement for March in several Employment categories has been greater than those experienced in recent months. Advancement of the cut-off dates at this time should prevent a situation later in the fiscal year where there are large amounts of numbers available but not enough time to use them. If the expected increase in CIS number use materializes, future cut-off date movements could slow or stop.
