August Visa Bulletin

The Department of State (DOS) has released the August Visa Bulletin and we saw significant forward movement in several categories. For example, India EB1 moved forward 8 mos; China EB1 moved forward 6 mos; and, EB3 all other countries and the Philippines both moved forward almost a full year. The USCIS has announced that they will use the Final Action Date chart for filing I-485’s in Aug. We typically experience retrogression at the end of the fiscal year so do not assume that your date will remain current in Sept but, we encourage you to file your I-485 in August if you are eligible.
