U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has confirmed that it will accept Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, filed pursuant to the Dates for Filing chart (above) for employment-based preference categories in the November 2023 Visa Bulletin. As noted in the October 2023 Visa Bulletin, “[d]ate advancements reflect an intention to keep visa issuance within quarterly limits in accordance with INA sections 201(a)(2) and 203(g), with potential date advancements throughout the fiscal year.”
As shown in the November 2023 Visa Bulletin, visa demand remains high going into next month. It is likely that the December 2023 Visa Bulletin will also show little movement. Based on the government’s commitment to quarterly limits, the December Visa Bulletin will be a helpful barometer to determine whether the government’s October 2023 Visa Bulletin accurately predicted demand.
