January 2019 Adjustment of Status Filing Dates
December 13th, 2018
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services determined which filing dates chart to use for the January 2019 Visa Bulletin. Use the following Visa Bulletin charts to determine when to file your application for adjustment of status.
How do I use these charts?
Find your visa type in the left-most column of the appropriate chart (family or employment based).
Stay in that row and move to the right to find the date under the country of your birth.
If you are otherwise eligible, and if the date of the chart is current ("C"), or if your priority date is earlier than the date on the chart, you may file your application.
What is my priority date?
Your priority date is typically the date when your sponsor or employer filed the immigrant visa petition for you. However, there may be a delay if the petition was filed improperly. If a labor certification was needed with your visa petition, the priority date is generally the date the labor certification application was accepted for processing.
