July 2020 Visa Bulletin

June 24, 2020

Subsequent to the issuance of the July 2020 Visa Bulletin USCIS has informed prospective applicants of which chart to reference when determining if they are eligible to file an application in July.

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

In July 2020, 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 July 2020”).

*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 July 2020.

 

Employment-Based Applicants: Final Action Dates Chart

In July 2020, 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. 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.

NOTE: USCIS indicates that if a particular immigrant visa category is “current” on the Final Action Dates chart or the cutoff date on the Final Action Dates chart is later than the date on the Dates for Filing chart, applicants in that immigrant visa category may file using the “Final Action Dates” chart during that month.
