May 2015 Visa Bulletin

The U.S. Department of State (DOS) released its May 2015 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.

The big news is that EB-2 India moved forward April 15, 2008. 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.

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.
