Hi @latha

There is a possibility that EB1 may get current in Oct 2019 visa bulletin.

Thanks Anil for the update !!!

Hi Anil,

I saw the priority date moved to March 2017 . Any chances of EB1 categories moving to current.

Thanks
Latha

Hi @latha

Chances are low for EB1 to get currrent in next 6 months.

Thanks Anil for the update !!!

Thanks for replying. One more advice please. I am following table " DATES FOR FILING OF EMPLOYMENT-BASED VISA APPLICATIONS" in VISA bulletin for filing AOS as my L1A is running out by mid-2021.
Do you think my PD (7th May’ 2019) will be eligible in near term to file for EAD/AOS? What’s your estimated date?

Hi @mrks

If you are an Indian, then chance of May 2019 getting current are low in next 4-5 years.

Yes I am an Indian. But my question is , will I be atleast eligible to apply for I485 in near term? So that I can continue my stay in this country legally even after L1’s 7 years gets completed before my GC finally comes.

Hi @mrks

You can only file i485 if your PD date gets current in either ‘final action’ chart or ‘date of filing’ chart. i do not think that ‘Date of filing’ chart, which moves faster than ‘final action’ would be current anytime in next years.

This is just my estimation based on publicly available data. The actual movement may be different. I suggest to keep a watch on monthly USCIS visa bulletin.

@Anil.Gupta What’s your gut feeling about “Date of Filing” date movement for EB1C. Your prediction about my i140 was pretty accurate earlier…thanks. That’s why I am asking what do you feel about “Date of Filing”?

Hi @mrks

I have not looked into PD date movement for a while now. Will try to look and then share the estimates.

Hi Anil ,

What are the probabilities of EB1 moving to current. Our 140 approved in December 2018 & waiting to apply for 485 till then .

Thanks

Hi Anil ,

As per Latest visa bulletin EB1 moved to July 2018 & our filing date is October 2018 . Pls help suggest if we can initiate FBI clearance & State police along with home country police clearance process now or wait till date become current.

Thanks
Latha

Police clearance certificates may or may not be required for your specific case.

Talk to your attorney and they will tell if you should submit them or you can skip them.

Hi Anil ,

Any predictions on October Bulletin as our priority date is October 2018 . Also just checking if form I 693 to be filed along with 485 or can be submitted when interview is scheduled.

Thanks

Hi Anil ,

Pls suggest on this as our priority date is oct 2018 in EB1 category we have filed for 485 this month along with EAD & AP card . As per November bulliten the final action dates moved to Dec 2018 so will we still hv to go through EAD & AP process or will be directly considered for GC process . If so what will next steps pls suggest.

Hi Anil ,

I have been following your site thanks for your timely responses . My query is we have filed for 485 in October 2020 in EB1 category. I’m derivative applicant & my client now offering me Full time job so pls suggest if I can change employer while our 485 is in progress.

Hi Anil ,

Our Receipt date was oct 26 th 2020 for AP / EAD / 485 forms . Our PD is oct 30 2018 EB1 , we have not got biometrics yet but everyone who applied along with us got biometrics. Can you pls clarify if we can raise service request with USCIS as I see current dates for AP is around Oct 20 , 2020 . Me & my son have given biometrics in 2019 can I mention the same when I raise request.

Thanks
