July Visa Bulletin

The Department of State (DOS) has released the July Visa Bulletin and as expected, there was significant forward movement in the India and China retrogressed categories. India EB3 saw the biggest forward movement of over a year but, both India EB2 and China EB2 moved forward approx. 7 months. All other categories remained current. The USCIS quickly announced that they would use the Final Action Date Chart for accepting new I-485 filings in the month of July. If you have a 485 filed and your priority date will be current in July, there is no action that needs to be taken. Becoming current means that you are eligible for an approval and as a practical matter, it means that the USCIS can further process your case and could issue you an approval, schedule you for a personal interview or issue you a request for evidence.
