Table B: Dates of Filing

The USCIS will be using the Table A: Final Action Dates chart for I-485 employment-based filings. A beneficiary must be current on the above Table A chart in order to file their I-485, Adjustment of Status applications.

MU Law Analysis

Both the Philippines and Worldwide (All Other) EB-3 continue to be current. Our opinion remains that these categories will stay current for the foreseeable future.

India EB-1 moved ahead 7 more months, which is about a year since December. India EB-2 and EB-3 each showed more progress than usual, but the progress is still underwhelming.  These slow progressions, along with the large number of India EB-2 and EB-3 filings in October, November, and December, probably means that we should only expect 1-4 week movements in India EB-2 or EB-3 for at least the rest of 2021.

China EB-2 and EB-3 again both moved forward by a few weeks, a trend that should continue. China EB-1 again showed more progress than expected moving ahead seven months.  This may be because of declining rates of visa issuance out of the American posts in China.

  1. Good day. We had our Interview just this morning. The consul said that our papers were okay. However, we were put on 221g because the consul needs the DS-5535 for my husband. She asked us to submit the said document together with our passports.

    Is this bad? Please advise. Thank you very much.

    1. Also the ConsuL CANCELLED OUR B1/B2 VISA which is going to expire on 2027. Her reason was that we already have our Immigrant Visa application going on.
