USCIS Sets June 2021 Adjustment of Status Filing Charts For the Visa Bulletin
Pasricha & Patel
Following the U.S. Department of State’s recent publication of the June 2021 Visa Bulletin, the USCIS has just announced that it will continue to follow the Dates for Filing for Family-Sponsored Adjustment of Status Applications for the June 2021 Visa Bulletin.
Because the F2A category remains ‘Current’ on the Final Action Dates Chart for Family-sponsored preference cases, this means that applicants in the F2A category (spouses and children of permanent residents) will continue to follow the Final Action Dates chart for June 2021, and this applies to all nationalities once again.
Furthermore, for employment-based visa applicants, they will continue to follow the Final Action Dates for Employment-Based Adjustment of Status Applications chart for the month of June 2021.
Continuing the most recent months’ predictions about how the visa availability movements in the employment-based visa preference category by the U.S. Department of State would advance rapidly, the employment-based visa categories for both India and China have continued to move ahead.
For example, the June 2021 EB-1 visa preference category continues to remain Current for both China and India, along with all other countries.
As for EB-2 India, the visa availability date advanced from August 1, 2010 in May 2021 to December 1, 2010 in the June 2021 visa bulletin.
Meanwhile EB-2 China moved quite significantly, from December 1, 2016 in the May 2021 visa bulletin all the way to May 1, 2017 in the June 2021 visa bulletin.
As for EB-3 India, the visa availability movement forward was also very encouraging: from February 1, 2011 to November 1, 2011.
As for EB-3 China, the visa date also moved ahead from May 15, 2018 to September 1, 2018 (for Professional Workers), and from August 1, 2009 to October 1, 2009 for Other Workers.
