USCIS Announces Revised
Processing Procedures for >>


Adjustment of Status
Applications>>


>


WASHINGTON--U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that, beginning
immediately, it will accept employment-based applications to adjust status (Form
I-485) filed by aliens whose priority dates are current under the July Visa
Bulletin, No. 107
.  USCIS will accept applications filed not
later than August 17, 2007.>>


>>


On July 2, 2007, USCIS announced that it would not
accept any additional employment-based applications to adjust status.  USCIS
made that announcement after receiving an update from the Department of State
that it would not authorize any additional employment-based visa numbers for
this fiscal year.  After consulting with USCIS, the Department of State has
advised that Bulletin #107 (dated June 12) should be relied upon as the current
July Visa Bulletin for purposes of determining employment visa number
availability, and that Visa Bulletin #108 (dated July 2) has been
withdrawn.
 >>


>>


"The public reaction to the July 2 announcement made it
clear that the federal government's management of this process needs further
review," said Emilio Gonzalez, USCIS Director.  "I am committed to working with
Congress and the State Department to implement a more efficient system in line
with public expectations.">>



USCIS's announcement today allows anyone who was
eligible to apply under Visa Bulletin No. 107 a full month's time to do so. 
Applications already properly filed with USCIS will also be accepted. 
T
he current fee
schedule will apply to all
applications filed under Visa
Bulletin No. 107
through August 17, 2007.  (The new fee schedule that becomes effective on July
30, 2007, will apply to all other applications filed on or after July 30,
2007).>>

    This is going to be a huge mess...expect Receipt Dates well into the future, they can not handle data entry for the 500K applications expected. This will put a whole new spin on "reasonable processing time". Lets put it this way, if you were USCIS and were forced by threat of legal action to open the flood gates for these applications, how would you respond? Dont get me wrong, I am happy for those who can now apply after waiting for so long, but I fear the real wait has just begun!

    The wait could be long OR NOT. Remember what they were able to do just two weeks ago. They will work over time, hire temps. If not, the whole thing will collapse.

    I cannot understand the fee schedule. If I file on August 3 under July bulletin, how much do I pay?

    Greg, could you give the link to this press release. Could not find it on the USCIS site or DOS site.
  19. Jun's Avatar
    Does this mean that if the July VB shows "current" for my category, anyone can apply until August 17? Please shed some light!
