It would be sad to have the visa application delayed, or be under administrative review just because there are inconsistencies in the information provided from the petition filed to the DS 230 applications submitted and the documents sent to NVC to establish petitioner’s continuing eligibility to sponsor the visa applicant and evidence to establish a continuing relationship with the petitioner.  Worse, a visa application may be denied for reasons of health, criminal, national security reasons, public charge, misrepresentation or fraud (arising from previous visa applications or past visits in the United States).

The dates shown are considered the “cut-off dates” officially described as the priority date of the first applicant who could not be reached within the numerical limits. Only applicants who have a priority date earlier than the cut-off date may be allotted a number. If it becomes necessary during the monthly allocation process to retrogress a cut-off date, supplemental requests for numbers will be honored only if the priority date falls within the new cut-off date announced in (the current visa) bulletin”
