Subsequent to the issuance of the February 2022 Visa Bulletin USCIS has informed prospective applicants of which chart to reference when determining if they are eligible to file an application in February.

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

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 2022”).
