The July 2008 Visa Bulletin shows all Employment-Based, Third Preference (EB-3) categories as "unavailable." The Bulletin noted that all EB-3 visas for the fiscal year (October 1, 2007 to September 30, 2008) will be used by the end of June 2008, thus no more EB-3 visas will be available for the remainder of the fiscal year. The October 2008 Visa Bulletin should return to the EB-3 cut-off dates from the June 2008 Bulletin.
All EB-1 categories, and EB-2 worldwide, Mexico and Philippines categories remain current. EB-2 for China and India remained the same at April 1, 2004. Unused EB-2 visas for the year will be reallocated to EB-2 China and India.
