As a reminder, be sure that your petitioner has not moved from the residence that is on record with both the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (formerly the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service) and the National Visa Center.  On your part, be sure that you also give the National Visa Center your current address and especially the name and complete address of the person you have designated, or intends to designate as your authorized agent.

The agent or representative would have to ensure that you get the current rules, procedures in place to continue your visa application processing, submit the appropriate documents (especially those that need correction to be consistent with the names, places, and dates previously indicated in the I-130 petition (when it was filed) your Immigrant Visa Application (paper or online version) – among other things.

Otherwise, inconsistencies could cause delay and even refusal of your visa application.

September Movements in 5 Years

The September cut-off dates from 2009 to 2014 are shown below – for the benefit of our regular subscribers, Friends, Clients and the Migrant public.  We have not included the cut-off dates for the Employment-based First, Second, Fourth and Fifth categories because they have been mostly current – meaning visas are immediately available after an applicant becomes documentarily qualified.

The F1 category moved 10 months from 2010 to 2011, then retrogressed for 2 years the next year, jumped almost six (6) years in 2013, three years this year.

Check how the other categories moved faster, stopped, moved and back again. It is very important that you are aware of the factors that could influence the advance or retreat of your specific category so you could prepare the things you need to go,or keep your living arrangements as they are.  We monitor the factors we believe would influence visa movements, so keep following our posts – better yet, "Like" and "Share" our page so more people would be aware of what they need to prepare to ensure they are ready when their priority dates are about to be, or has become current.
