February 2019 Visa Bulletin

Subsequent to the issuance of the February 2019 Visa Bulletin, USCIS has informed prospective applicants of which priority-date chart should be referenced for applications filed in February:

Family-Sponsored Applicants: Dates for Filing chart

In February 2019, all 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 February 2019”).

Employment-Based Applicants: Final Action Dates chart

Please note that, unlike in January 2019, employment-based applicants should reference the “Final Action Dates” chart (below) in February 2019. The listing of a date for any category indicates that the class is oversubscribed; “C” means current, or authorized for issuance to all qualified applicants; “U” means unauthorized for issuance. Please note that only applicants with a priority date which is earlier than the listed date may file their application (Department of State, “Visa Bulletin for February 2019”).

Please note: Red boxes indicate that the final action dates for these categories have retrogressed.
