October Visa Bulletin Changed Again by State Department

On September 25, 2015, the Department of State issued a revised October Visa Bulletin which limits the number of people who will be able to file I-485 applications on October 1. This revised bulletin supersedes the bulletin released on September 9, 2015, which would have allowed many foreign nationals to file I-485 applications on October 1. The most notable change is for foreign nationals from India in the EB-2 category. The earlier bulletin would have allowed people with EB-2 priority dates of July 1, 2011 or earlier to file. The adjusted bulletin pushed that date back to July 1, 2009.

Please see our earlier legal update on this topic.

We are continuing to monitor this change and will let you know when further updates are available.
