Mar 2021 Visa Bulletin Updates

According to the Department of State Visa Bulletin, the employment-based Final Action cutoff dates for China and India have advanced in March 2021. The USCIS has announced it would honor the “Final Action Dates” for all the employment-based Adjustment of Status applications, which means that USCIS will keep the “Dates for Filing” closed in March 2021. The EB-1, Eb-2, and EB-3 Final Action dates for countries except China and India are still current. The details for March 2021 Final Action dates are as below:

  • Final Action Dates of EB-1: China and India have moved forward from 01/01/2020 to 08/01/2020, advancing by 7 months.

  • Final Action Dates of EB-2: China has moved forward from 06/15/2016 to 07/15/2016, advancing by 1 month; India has moved forward from 10/12/2009 to 01/15/2010, advancing by 3 months.

  • Final Action Dates of EB-3: China has moved forward from 01/01/2018 to 02/08/2018, advancing by 5 weeks; India has moved forward from 04/01/2010 to 07/01/2010, advancing by 3 months.

  • Final Action Dates of EB-5: China remains unchanged on 08/15/2015.

The DOS did not update its projections announced last month for Final Action dates movement through May 2021. The projection was that EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 Final Action dates for all countries except China and India will remain current through May 2021; EB-1 Final Action dates for China and India may advance up to six months; EB-2 final action dates for China and India may advance up to 2-3 weeks; EB- 3 final action dates for China and India may advance up to 1-3 months; and EB-5 Final Action dates for China will remain unchanged.
