April 2022 Visa Bulletin – Final Action Dates Remain Stalled, but Dates for Filing Rapidly Advance for EB-2 India

The Visa Bulletin is released monthly by the Department of State and is used to determine when a sponsored foreign national can submit the final step of the green card process, or if already pending, when the final step can be adjudicated.

Below is a summary of the March Visa Bulletin, including Final Action Dates and changes from the previous month.

China:  EB-1 remains current; EB-2 remains March 1, 2019; and EB-3 remains stalled at March 22, 2018.

India:   EB-1 remains current; EB-2 moves forward nine weeks to July 8, 2013; and EB-3 remains frozen at January 15, 2012.

All Other Countries:   EB-1, EB-2 and EB-3 remain current.

NOTE:  USCIS will accept I-485 applications in April based on the Department of State’s more favorable Dates for Filing chart. In the Dates for Filing chart, EB-2 India advances an entire year over the previous month to September 1, 2014.  As a reminder, an I-485 application can be filed based on the Dates for Filing chart, but cannot be approved until the priority date is current based on the Final Action Dates chart.
