St. Louis Immigration & Naturalization Attorney Jim Hacking | October 2013 Visa Bulletin Update

Spread the love

The State Department's October 2013 Visa Bulletin is out.  The visa bulletin details processing times for family based and employment based visas.  Many categories are current, but the bulletin explains which previously-filed visa applications are being processed.

Last month, the family based FB-2A category had become current after many years of backlog.  FB-2A encompasses visas for spouses and children of lawful permanent residents.  We had suspected that when people saw that the category was current that new applications would be filed and the backlog return.

This month also sees minimal progress for EB-2 employees from China.  Visas are now being processed for people with a priority date from September 15, 2008 for people from that country.
