Priority-date cutoffs will see minimal or no advancement in most employment-based categories next month, according to the Final Action Dates published Monday in the State Department’s January Visa Bulletin.
Key movements in the January Visa Bulletin.
Final Action Dates for Employment-Based Preference Cases:
The State Department also released its Dates for Filing chart for January. Applicants seeking to file for adjustment of status are reminded that the chart does not take effect unless U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services confirms that it does via a web posting in the coming days. BAL will update clients once officials confirm whether the chart can be used in January.
Dates for Filing for Employment-Based Preference Cases:
Additional notes: The visa bulletin predicted little forward movement in most employment-based categories in the coming months, with the exception of Worldwide EB-1, which could see dates become current. The bulletin said priority cutoff dates could be imposed in the Worldwide EB-2 category in the second half of the fiscal year and in the Worldwide EB-3 category in March or earlier.
