Family-Sponsored Applicants: Dates for Filing Chart
In June 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 June 2019”).
Family-Sponsored applicants whose applications have already been submitted and are currently pending should reference the Final Action Dates chart (below) for information on when their priority date becomes current and a final determination on their case will be made.
