The Department of State (“DOS”) is expected to announce changes to the current immigrant visa availability system that will allow for those potential immigrant visa applicants waiting for their priority dates to become current to be able to file their adjustment applications beforehand and enjoy the benefits associates with a pending application for adjustment of status, mainly work and travel authorization. However, while these applications would be accepted, they could not be adjudicated until the visa bulletin indicates that the applicant’s priority date actually becomes current.

This change is expected to provide some relief to those who are caught in the current immigrant visa processing backlog. Our Watertown immigration attorneys are closely monitoring these developments and will provide additional information when it becomes available.
