Visa Bulletin for November Shows Small Advancement for Most Countries

According to the Department of State’s November Visa Bulletin, EB-1 worldwide cutoff dates for issuance of an immigrant visa will advance slightly, while China will advance by three months.  There is no EB-1 advancement for India.  EB-2 and EB-3 worldwide will remain current, while there is modest advancement for China in the EB-2 category and a one-day advancement for India in the EB-2 category. 

USCIS again announced the use of the Dates for Filing chart in November, and the November bulletin shows no movement for dates for filing employment-based visa applications.

Chin & Curtis looks forward to presenting a more in-depth look at immigrant visa allocation in light of several measures that have been introduced in Congress over the past few months to attempt to address some of the backlogs in a forthcoming blog post.
