B.  DATES FOR FILING FAMILY-SPONSORED
     VISA APPLICATIONS

The chart below reflects dates for filing visa applications within a timeframe justifying immediate action in the application process. Applicants for immigrant visas who have a priority date earlier than the application date in the chart below may assemble and submit required documents to the Department of State’s National Visa Center, following receipt of notification from the National Visa Center containing detailed instructions. The application date for an oversubscribed category is the priority date of the first applicant who cannot submit documentation to the National Visa Center for an immigrant visa. If a category is designated “current,” all applicants in the relevant category may file applications, regardless of priority date.

The “C” listing indicates that the category is current, and that applications may be filed regardless of the applicant’s priority date. The listing of a date for any category indicates that only applicants with a priority date which is earlier than the listed date may file their application.

Visit www.uscis.gov/visabulletininfo for information on whether USCIS has determined that this chart can be used (in lieu of the chart in paragraph 4.A.) this month for filing applications for adjustment of status with USCIS.

*Employment Third Preference Other Workers Category:  Section 203(e) of the Nicaraguan and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) passed by Congress in November 1997, as amended by Section 1(e) of Pub. L. 105-139, provides that once the Employment Third Preference Other Worker (EW) cut-off date has reached the priority date of the latest EW petition approved prior to November 19, 1997, the 10,000 EW numbers available for a fiscal year are to be reduced by up to 5,000 annually beginning in the following fiscal year. This reduction is to be made for as long as necessary to offset adjustments under the NACARA program. Since the EW cut-off date reached November 19, 1997 during Fiscal Year 2001, the reduction in the EW annual limit to 5,000 began in Fiscal Year 2002.

6.  The Department of State has a recorded message with the cut-off date information for Final Application Action which can be heard at:  (202) 485-7699.  This recording is updated on or about the tenth of each month with information on final action dates for the following month.

SPECIAL IMMIGRANT (SI) TRANSLATOR CATEGORY VISA 
     AVAILABILITY

The Department expects to reach the FY-2017 annual limit of 50 Special Immigrant Visas in the SI category by the end of December 2016.  As a result, the final action date for the SI category has become “Unavailable” effective January 2017.  Further issuances in the SI category will not be possible until October 2017, under the FY-2018 annual limit.  The SQ Special Immigrant Visa category for certain Iraqi and Afghan nationals employed by or on behalf of the U.S. government in Iraq or Afghanistan is not affected and remains current.

E.  EMPLOYMENT-BASED FOURTH (E4) AND CERTAIN RELIGIOUS 
     WORKERS (SR) PREFERENCE CATEGORY VISA AVAILABILITY

There continues to be high demand in the E4 and SR categories, primarily for Juvenile Court Dependent cases filed with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for adjustment of status.  Therefore, it may be necessary to retrogress the E4 and SR Final Action Dates for El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico at some point in an effort to hold number use within the maximum allowed under the FY-2017 annual limits.

F.  ANNUAL REPORT OF IMMIGRANT VISA APPLICANTS IN THE
    FAMILY-SPONSORED AND EMPLOYMENT-BASED PREFERENCES
    REGISTERED AT THE NATIONAL VISA CENTER AS OF
    NOVEMBER 1, 2016

The National Visa Center has provided the totals of applicants who are registered in the various numerically-limited immigrant categories for processing at overseas posts. This information is available on the Consular Affairs www.travel.state.gov website.
