The U.S. Department of State has released the February 2010 Visa Bulletin.? The monthly visa bulletin is a mathematical projection of immigrant visa availability for the coming month, based on recent data related to the number of immigrant visa applications.? In February, priority date cutoffs for the EB-2 China category will advance modestly, with the new date of May 22, 2005. In the EB-3 preference category, cutoff dates will advance approximately seven weeks for China and Worldwide (September 22, 2002), but will not advance for India or Mexico.

All other categories will remain unchanged from the current January 2010 bulletin.? As expected, the EB-1 preference category remains current for all countries.
