Last week, the Department of State (DOS) released the last visa bulletin of this fiscal year. Typically, at the end of a fiscal year, we see significant retrogression and often some categories become “U” unavailable however, this year virtually all categories remained at last month’s priority date. The USCIS has yet to announce which chart they will recognize but, you can be confident that if you were “current” in Aug, you will remain current in September. We will update the USCIS I-485 information when it is released.
The USCIS has announced that for purposes of filing I-485’s in September, the Final Action Date chart must be utilized.
