The Department of State (DoS) has announced the January 2019 US Visa Bulletin. EB-1 (Employment Based) continues to be backlogged for all nation allotments. It has advanced by just 2.5 to 3 months.
The per-nation priority date cut-offs have been set out in the January 2019 US Visa Bulletin by the DoS. These regulate the availability of immigrant visas. Also, the consular visa application approvals, filings, and flow of status adjustments are also regulated by them.
The chart for Dates for Filing Visa Applications is included in the January 2019 US Visa Bulletin. This indicates when the aspiring immigrants can lodge their applications for immigrant visas or adjustments of status. It also includes the chart for Application Final Action Dates, as quoted by the JDSUPRA. This indicates when the applications for immigrant visas or adjustments of status can be approved and PR be offered.
The overseas national must possess a priority date that is prior to the date specified for their nation and preference category. This is for qualifying to obtain approval for a pending application for EB adjustment in 2019.
