UPDATE ON JULY VISA AVAILABILITY

The sudden backlog reduction efforts by Citizenship and Immigration Services Offices during the past month have resulted in the use of almost 60,000 Employment numbers. As a result of this unexpected action it has been necessary to make immediate adjustments to several previously announced cut-off dates. All Citizenship and Immigration Services Offices have been notified of the following:

Effective Monday July 2, 2007 there will be no further authorizations inresponse to requests for Employment-based preference cases. All numbers available to these categories under the FY-2007 annual numerical limitation

have been made available. Employment preference numbers will once again be available to these chargeability areas beginning October 1, 2007, under the FY-2008 annual numerical limitation.

Department of State Publication 9514
CA/VO: July 2, 2007


============================
IV had a call last night and we are exploring all options to protest against it. We have also been communicating with AILA since last week regarding the lawsuit. As soon as something firms up, we will be posting on the forum.

It is clear that they will not approve any more I-485s till the end of the fiscal year. The million dollar question is whether they will accept the I-485s that we submit now or will they be rejected.

So it means they did it even before the first fedex truck arrives.

My sympathies with all fellow immigrants.

Default July Bulletin - TYPO

Effective Monday July 2, 2007 there will be no further authorizations inresponse to requests for Employment-based preference cases.
All numbers available to these categories under the FY-2007 annual numerical limitation have been made available.

I think USCIS has screwed it again

"As a result of this unexpected action it has been necessary to make immediate adjustments to several previously announced cut-off dates. " So all EB`s are unavailable starting July 2nd, my guess all the applications received today will most probabily be sent back.

July 02 filers don't seem to be safe according to OH Law Firm:

- If visa number is unavailable in the Visa Bulletin, it appears that the USCIS is unable to accept the 485 applications under the USCIS regulation. It is thus likely that all the applications which they received or will receive today may be rejected and returned. The current situation is different from the other worker cases rejection in June in that in that case, the State Department did not officially revised the Visa Bulletin. However, we will have to wait and see the anticipated announcement from the USCIS.

Thanks,
Jayant
