The DOS bulletin update under section D as if nothing has happened and they say "Visa Bulletin #108 (dated July 2) is hereby withdrawn."..in a very simple way...

Thanks again for all the IV support....Great news...

So what will happen to already filed applications?
They didn't say that they will accept application till August..May be it will come in another press release..

Does this mean that we have to file I-485 before August 1st?. From August 1st, the August visa bulletin is effective and all the EB category dates are U.:confused:

After July 30th, you have to pay the higher fee, but you will get free AP/EADs for the entire duration until adjudication.

So, it's up to you (and whoever is paying for ur EADs).. you can decide appropriately.

I'm sorry, I think I misspoke.

From the USCIS memo posted on AILA's website (ref: http://www.aila.org/content/default.aspx?docid=22912):

USCISís announcement today allows anyone who was eligible to apply under Visa Bulletin No. 107 a full monthís time to do so. Applications already properly filed with USCIS will also be accepted. The current fee schedule will apply to all applications filed under Visa Bulletin No. 107 through August 17, 2007. (The new fee schedule that becomes effective on July 30, 2007, will
apply to all other applications filed on or after July 30, 2007).

So I guess, the old fee will still apply even after July 30th for 485 filings.. and I guess no free EAD benefits will apply either. Sorry if I caused any confusion.
