USCIS revises visa bulletin for October 2015

Home / In The Headlines / USCIS revises visa bulletin for October 2015

As you may know, each month the US State Dpt publishes a list of visa numbers available in all visa categories, family and employment related. The Dpt of State set 2 different dates in the September visa bulletin for October 2015, one for the permissible filing date and one  for the final action date. The permissible filing date would have allowed for a much earlier filing date for adjustment of status applications, particularly benefiting Indian and Chinese advance degree professionals.  Subsequently, the Dpt of State issued a revised bulletin on September  25  for October  2015 ( and now also carrying over until November) that significantly backtracked on its earlier pronouncement. By not allowing adjustment applications to be filed earlier, many dependent spouses will not be eligible for work authorizations who would have been otherwise.
