May 2015 Visa Bulletin - China EB-5 Oversubscription, Mexico and Philippines See Jumps



The Monthly Visa Bulletin for May 2015 was released and brought good news for some, and bad news for others. China's Employment Based 5 Preference Category saw the implementation of a cut-off date due to heavy applicant demand. Future visa availability for this preference will depend on demand. Potential retrogression is possible.

However, the other Employment Based Categories saw substantial moves forward.

On the other end, many of the Family Preference Category had their regular movements forward. In particular, the F2B Preference Category for Mexico and the F4 Preference Category for Philippines.
