March 2024 US Visa Bulletin: Good News For Green Card Applicants From India

Posted by Admin on February, 19, 2024

As March 2024 unfolds, the Visa Bulletin becomes a focal point of attention for immigrants, employers, and immigration advocates, each eagerly awaiting its release. This bulletin is not merely a routine update; it's a vital compass guiding individuals through the labyrinthine landscape of the U.S. immigration system. Its arrival heralds insights into visa availability and priority dates, information that can significantly influence immigration strategies and timelines. For those navigating the complexities of immigration, the Visa Bulletin is an indispensable tool, offering clarity and direction in an often opaque process.

Things to keep in mind:
The Dates for Filing Visa Applications chart outlines the earliest dates when applicants can submit their adjustment of status applications or immigrant visa applications. These dates are crucial for individuals planning their immigration process, as filing too early or too late can impact the timing of their application processing.
The Application Final Action Dates chart indicates when the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or the Department of State can approve adjustment of status applications or immigrant visa applications, leading to the issuance of permanent residence (green card). These dates determine the eligibility of applicants to move forward in the immigration process.

Key highlights from the March 2024 Visa Bulletin:
In the March 2024 Visa Bulletin, several notable updates and trends emerge, particularly concerning employment-based preference categories:
Limited movement in priority dates: Green Card applicants from India get the sweet spot. Despite notable progress in the January bulletin, the February bulletin showed minimal movement in priority dates for most employment-based preference categories. However, Indian applicants saw a one-month advancement in the EB-1 category, while EB-2 and EB-3 categories remained stagnant.

Priority date cutoffs: To file an EB adjustment application in March 2024, applicants must have a priority date earlier than the listed date for their preference category and country. The final action dates are crucial for processing immigrant visa or green card applications. Progress in the immigration process depends on these dates, varying by visa category and country of chargeability.
