August 2014 Visa BulletinPosted by admin on Jul 24, 2014 in I-485 Adjustment of Status, News, Visa Bulletin | 0 comments
The U.S. Department of State (DOS) released its August 2014 Visa Bulletin. The Visa Bulletin sets forth per country priority dates that regulate the ability of an individual to file an adjustment of status APPLICATION or consular process at a U.S. Embassy. Foreign nationals can file an adjustment of status application if their priority dates are prior to the cutoff dates specified by the DOS in the Visa Bulletin.
The good news for Indian nationals is that the Employment-Based Category Two (EB-2) jumped forward to January 2009. That means many intending immigrants will be able to file their adjustments of status cases in August. If your priority date is ‘current’, make sure to get your I-485 adjustment cases ready for filing.
Visa availability and cutoff dates are determined on a monthly basis by the DOS based on anticipated demand. These dates can move forward, backward or remain unchanged. Employers and employees should monitor the monthly Visa Bulletins so they can properly plan their immigration cases.
