1. SPOUSES AND CHILDREN OF LAWFUL PERMANENT RESIDENTS MAY FILE FOR PERMANENT RESIDENCE IN AUGUST
On July 9, 2013, the U.S. Department of State released the August Visa Bulletin, publishing the “cut-off dates” for immigrant visa availability during the month of August 2013. For the second time in recent years, the F-2A category has become current for the spouses and minor children of Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs). This category traditionally has a backlog, or waiting period, of at least a year for visa availability but for the immediate future these visas are immediately available.
2. EB-2 INDIA ADVANCEMENT
The Visa Bulletin also contained significant advancement of the priority date for the Indian employment-based second preference (EB-2) category by more than three (3) years from September 1, 2004 to January 1, 2008. There will be no significant movement for other employment based classifications.
