January 2019 Visa Bulletin

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

Family-Sponsored Applicants: Dates for Filing chart

This month, 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 January 2019”).

Employment-Based Applicants: Dates for Filing chart

For December 2018, employment based applicants should refer to the “Dates for Filing” chart (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 January 2019”).

Please note: While the above charts determine when applications may be filed, your green card application will not be approved unless your priority date is current according to the “Final Action Date” chart. To see if your application is eligible for approval, please refer to the final action date charts below.
