January Visa Bulletin

The January Visa Bulletin was just released. The good news is that most priority dates have advanced.

The biggest change was under the EB-1 category for Indian Nationals. The Dates For Filing moved from July 1, 2019 to January 1, 2021. The Final Action Date moved from January 1, 2017 to September 1, 2020.

The EB-1 dates also progressed forward for China. The Dates For Filing moved from August 1, 2022 to January 1, 2023. The Final Action Date moved from February 15, 2022 to July 1, 2022.

Under the EB-2 category the priority dates for all countries except China and India made marginal gains. The Dates For Filing moved from January 1, 2023 to February 15, 2023. The Final Action Date moved from July 15, 2022 to November 1, 2022.

The EB-2 Dates For Filing for China moved from January 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020 and the Final Action Date moved from October, 2019 to January 1, 2020.

For India the EB-2 Dates for Filing remained the same at May 15, 2012. The Final Action Dates moved slightly from January 1, 2012 to March 1, 2012.

Hopefully the USCIS will continue to push the priority dates forward.
