A.  FINAL ACTION DATES FOR EMPLOYMENT-BASED PREFERENCE CASES

On the chart below, the listing of a date for any class indicates that the class is oversubscribed (see paragraph 1); "C" means current, i.e., numbers are authorized for issuance to all qualified applicants; and "U" means unauthorized, i.e., numbers are not authorized for issuance. (NOTE: Numbers are authorized for issuance only for applicants whose priority date is earlier than the final action date listed below.)

*Employment Third Preference Other Workers Category:  Section 203(e) of the Nicaraguan and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) passed by Congress in November 1997, as amended by Section 1(e) of Pub. L. 105-139, provides that once the Employment Third Preference Other Worker (EW) cut-off date has reached the priority date of the latest EW petition approved prior to November 19, 1997, the 10,000 EW numbers available for a fiscal year are to be reduced by up to 5,000 annually beginning in the following fiscal year. This reduction is to be made for as long as necessary to offset adjustments under the NACARA program. Since the EW final action date reached November 19, 1997 during Fiscal Year 2001, the reduction in the EW annual limit to 5,000 began in Fiscal Year 2002. For Fiscal Year 2021 this reduction will be limited to approximately 150.

B.  DATES FOR FILING OF EMPLOYMENT-BASED VISA APPLICATIONS

The chart below reflects dates for filing visa applications within a timeframe justifying immediate action in the application process. Applicants for immigrant visas who have a priority date earlier than the application date in the chart may assemble and submit required documents to the Department of State’s National Visa Center, following receipt of notification from the National Visa Center containing detailed instructions. The application date for an oversubscribed category is the priority date of the first applicant who cannot submit documentation to the National Visa Center for an immigrant visa. If a category is designated “current,” all applicants in the relevant category may file, regardless of priority date.

The “C” listing indicates that the category is current, and that applications may be filed regardless of the applicant’s priority date. The listing of a date for any category indicates that only applicants with a priority date which is earlier than the listed date may file their application.

Visit www.uscis.gov/visabulletininfo for information on whether USCIS has determined that this chart can be used (in lieu of the chart in paragraph 5.A.) this month for filing applications for adjustment of status with USCIS.

The above final action date projections for the Family and Employment categories indicate what is likely to happen on a monthly basis through January.   The determination of the actual monthly final action dates is subject to fluctuations in applicant demand and a number of other variables. 

G.  SCHEDULED EXPIRATION OF TWO EMPLOYMENT CATEGORIES

Employment Fourth Preference Certain Religious Workers (SR):

Pursuant to Section 102 of Division I, Title I of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (Public Law 116-94), the non-minister special immigrant program expires on September 30, 2020.  No SR visas may be issued overseas, or final action taken on adjustment of status cases, after midnight September 29, 2020.  Visas issued prior to this date will only be issued with a validity date of September 29, 2020, and all individuals seeking admission as a non-minister special immigrant must be admitted (repeat, admitted) into the U.S. no later than midnight September 29, 2020.

The final action date for this category has been listed as “Unavailable” for October. 

If there is legislative action extending this category for FY-2021, the final action date would immediately become “Current” for October for all countries except El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras which would be subject to an August 1, 2017 final action date and Mexico which would be subject to a September 1, 2018 final action date.  

Employment Fifth Preference Categories (I5 and R5):

Section 104 of Division I, Title I of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (Public Law 116-94) extended this immigrant investor pilot program until September 30, 2020.  The I5 and R5 visas may be issued until close of business on September 30, 2020, and may be issued for the full validity period.  No I5 or R5 visas may be issued overseas, or final action taken on adjustment of status cases, after September 30, 2020.

The final action dates for the I5 and R5 categories have been listed as “Unavailable” for October. 

If there is legislative action extending them for FY-2021, the final action dates would immediately become “Current” for October for all countries except China-mainland born I5 and R5 which would be subject to an August 15, 2015 final action date and Vietnam I5 and R5 which would be subject to an August 1, 2017 final action date.

evaranna attorney ki email chesara regarding downgrade ?

Yea, someone I know emailed to his attorney and got this is the response 


 "This is not possible over the day, currently it is taking 6-9 months for filing and after filing DOL is taking around 5-7 months for adjudication."
https://cilawgroup.com/news/2020/09/24/eb-2-to-eb-3-india-downgrading-to-benefit-from-earlier-priority-date-how-and-when-to-do-it-2/
 Once a case is initiated, the actual document preparation can be as short as a day or two.  We recommend using premium processing and because of the unique ways premium processing is requested for I-140 filed without an original PERM Labor Certification, the actual premium processing turnaround time can be more than 15 days.  Essentially, the premium processing 15-day window will be put on hold until USCIS is able to internally confirm that the case is eligible for premium processing and only then the 15-day window would start.
 I think the downgrade 140 and 485 can be done at same time

While the advancement in the visa bulletin is promising news, one thing worth noting is that this document, released by the Department of State, has two dates on it - the filing date, and the final action date, and currently we are unsure whether USCIS is going to use the filing or final action date to determine what cases it will accept. (https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-processes-and-procedures/visa-availability-priority-dates/adjustment-of-status-filing-charts-from-the-visa-bulletin [uscis.gov]).  This guidance is typically announced by USCIS within a few days of the new Visa Bulletin being released. Once we know, we'll be able to determine whether we can move forward with an adjustment or EB-3 downgrade, and in what capacity.
