With the recent publication of the April 2021 Visa Bulletin by the U.S. Department of State, the USCIS has followed suit and announced that it will continue to follow the Dates for Filing for Family-Sponsored Adjustment of Status Applications for the April 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 April 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 April 2021.

Continuing the previous 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 advanced quite nicely.

For example, the EB-1 visa preference category is Current for both China and India, along with all other countries.

As for EB-2 India, the visa availability date advanced from January 15, 2010 up to May 1, 2010, while EB-2 China moved a few months as well, from July 15, 2016 to September 1, 2016.

As for EB-3 India, the visa availability movement forward was also helpful: from July 1, 2010 to September 1, 2010. As for EB-3 China, the visa date moved less dramatically, from February 8, 2018 to March 15, 2018.
