EB-3 stands for “employment-based third category” and refers to a type of immigrant visa issued to i) professionals who hold a baccalaureate degree or foreign equivalent degree, ii) skilled workers who have at least two years of experience or training, or iii) other workers in positions for which no qualified U.S. workers are available. We have successfully processed a high number and variety of EB-3 green card applications.

The U.S. State Department has just released the June 2017 Visa Bulletin which is the ninth Visa Bulletin for the FY2017 fiscal year. The headline in the upcoming month’s Visa Bulletin is introduction of a cutoff date for EB-1 India and EB-1 China. Because this cutoff date may remain in effect for the next several months, we call on all EB-1 India and EB-1 China applicants who are eligible but have not filed I-485s to do so before the end of May 2017.
