BREAKING IT DOWN: February 2020 Visa Bulletin Updates

USCIS has released the February 2020 Visa Bulletin, which controls who is eligible to file an Adjustment of Status application (green card application) this month. This month's visa bulletin will utilize the State Department's Final Action Dates chart. The highlights include:

  • EB-1 applicants: Chinese and Indian applicants priority dates did not move forward and remain the same as in January 2020. For applicants from all other countries, the priority-date cutoff advanced by two months to December 1, 2018.

  • EB-2 applicants: All countries are current, with the exception of China and India. The priority-date cutoff for Chinese and Indian EB-2 applicants advanced minimally - for China by two weeks and for India by one day.

  • EB-3 applicants: There was a slight advancement for applicants from China, India and the Philippines, while all other countries remain current.

So, what does this mean for you? There was little movement for priority-date cutoffs in the February 2020 visa bulletin and experts warn green card applicants to expect little to no movement moving forward in March 2020 as well.
