The United States State Department has released its June 2022 Visa Bulletin. Applicants should refer to the new final action dates and dates for filing in employment-based visa categories. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will accept adjustment of status applications using the Final Action Dates chart.

The final action dates for employment-based visas are as follows in the June 2022 bulletin:

  • EB-1: All countries remain current.
  • EB-2: China remains at March 1, 2019. India advances one year to September 1, 2014. All other countries remain current.

  • EB-5 Non-Regional (C5, T5): For unreserved visas, China has a final action date of November 22, 2015. All other countries and categories are current. Due to current high demand from China, the Department of State will establish a Final Action cutoff date for the EB-5 China Unreserved Non-Regional Center (C5 and T5) categories of November 22, 2015. This cutoff date will also apply to EB-5 China Unreserved Regional Center (I5 and R5) cases.
