May 2014 Visa Bulletin was released earlier today.
Date for EB2 India is 15 NOV 04 and EB2 China is 15 APR 09. The cut-off for all other EB2 countries are Current.
The good news is EB2 China keeps moving forward, more than a month this time.
As expected no movement for EB2 India. I think EB2 India dates is going to stay the same till June 2014 Visa Bulletin. It might start moving big from July 2014.
