On August 1, 2015, EB-3 China will see significant retrogression of seven years in the priority date cut-off for FY2015, moving back to June 1, 2004. There are several factors that caused this correction. The two primary factors were an increased demand in Chinese family-based visas as well as the advancement of EB-3 China early in the fiscal year. Bear in mind, however, that there are only two more months in FY2015. It is predicted that EB-3 China will recover to 2010 or even 2011 at the beginning of FY2016, which begins on October 1, 2015.
