March 2021 Visa Bulletin

February 25, 2021

Subsequent to the issuance of the March 2021 Visa Bulletin USCIS has informed prospective applicants of which chart to reference when determining if they are eligible to file an application in March.

Family-Sponsored Applicants: Dates for Filing Chart (Except F2A Category)

In March 2021, most family sponsored applicants should refer to the “Dates for Filing” chart in the Department of State Visa Bulletin (below). The “C” listing indicates that the category is current, and that applications may be filed regardless of the applicant’s priority date. The listing of a date for any category indicates that only applicants with a priority date which is earlier than the listed date may file their application (Department of State, “Visa Bulletin for March 2021”).

Dates for Filing for Family-Sponsored Applicants:

*Note: Even though there is a Date for Filing for F2A petitioners, the Final Action Date chart lists the date as “Current,” and therefore, according to USCIS, F2A applicants may use the Final Action Dates chart for March 2021.

Employment-Based Applicants: Dates for Filing

In March 2021, employment-based applicants should reference the “Final Action Dates” chart below. The listing of a date for any category indicates that the class is oversubscribed; “C” means that the category is current. “U” means unauthorized; for example, numbers are not authorized for issuance. Employment-based applicants may submit their applications if their category is listed as current or if they have a priority date earlier than the date listed for their category.
