EMPLOYMENT-BASED PRIORITY DATES GO CURRENT

Rate this Entry

In a surprise move, the State Department has listed all employment-based green card categories (except unskilled workers) as current in the latest Visa Bulletin.



The good news is that it will be possible to file adjustment of status applications before the fee increase takes effect on July 30th.



A few important points to remember. First, retrogression is a problem until July 1st. If you file a case before then, it will be rejected if the priority date is not current for the June bulletin. Second, retrogression could return on August 1st so be sure to file your case in July if possible. And try to get the application to USCIS before July 29th to take advantage of current fees which are much lower than the new fees.

    This is likely great news for many. But for those that are now filing the adjustment of status it is a bitter-sweet situation. Yes, we can file AOS but most likely the retrogression will be back before the petitions are approved and we'll be caught in the waiting game again.

    Greg,

    I would appreciate your comments on

    1) There is a talk that approx 40-70K immigrant visas still available for the last quarter. Is this true? If this is true, we are going to have one more year where we will have a lot of visa numbers go waste. What is the credibility of this information?

    2) Can USCIS decide not to take applications during the middle of the month, even thought the VB is current for a month?
