Notably, the EB-3 visa category retrogresses by approximately one year for all other countries except India and China. Due to continuing demand, it is expected the category will continue to retrogress, or become entirely unavailable, in next month’s visa bulletin.

USCIS has announced they will honor the Final Action Dates chart for filing employment-based adjustment of status applications.
