The Department of State has released the March 2015 Visa Bulletin, a monthly report detailing the current cutoff dates for the filing or approval of green card applications in the various U.S. permanent visa categories. A person who is otherwise eligible to apply for or be granted a green card in the U.S., must have a current priority date as specified in the Visa Bulletin.
The March 2015 Visa Bulletin offers good news on all fronts, especially for nationals of India and China. As of March 1, 2015, the priority date in the employment-based second (EB-2) preference category for Chinese nationals will advance six months to September 1, 2010, while the priority date in the EB-2 category for Indian nationals will advance 16 months to January 1, 2007.
Otherwise, the priority dates continue their steady advancement as the employment-based third (EB-3) preference and all family-based preference categories will advance at least a few weeks.
