Do you want to know if your USCIS application was accepted? When will it be? Check the November 2022 Visa Bulletin and find out
The November 2022 Visa Bulletin is a monthly documentation released by the Department of State (DOS), which provides detailed information about the timing of adjustment of status petitions filed with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
It allows immigrants with adjustment of status petitions to USCIS, either through a family or labor petition, to know if their applications were approved and also when they will be able to continue with the rest of their immigration proceedings to obtain a visa.
In the new November 2022 visa bulletin, there are new tables containing valuable information on the dates for filing consular applications and final visa issuance action by U.S. embassies or consulates.
From the immigration law firm Jaskot Law, we tell you in detail what the visa bulletin is, how to read it, and why it is so important for immigrants in the United States.
But what is the Visa Bulletin 2022?
In this monthly document issued by the DOS (Department of State), essential information is provided regarding the availability and priority date of immigrant visas that can now begin processing. Additionally, the document also includes cutoff dates after which visas cannot be accessed, based on their category.
Knowing the immigration timelines, how long it will take for a visa to be processed or when it can be applied for, is crucial for any foreigner seeking to adjust their immigration status. The Visa Bulletin serves as a sort of guide, both for individuals interested in a visa and for government agencies that handle immigration processes and procedures. This is the case for USCIS, which relies on this document to determine whether to approve applications or file a Permanent Residence or Adjustment of Status application.
What’s new in the November Visa Bulletin?
The main change in this installment of the Visa Bulletin is for Mexican immigrants, as all categories in Table A advanced significantly. In addition, countries in the F2A category are still listed as Current, i.e., they are still being processed as of the current date. The rest of the categories remain in the same position as in the October 2022 Visa Bulletin.
