The Department of State (DOS) have revised the Visa Bulletin initially issued on September 9, 2015 for OCTOBER 2015.
PLEASE NOTE: The DOS have advised that this bulletin supersedes the bulletin for October 2015 that was originally published on September 9, 2015, and contained Dates for Filing Applications long used by the Department of State for internal processing purposes. Following consultations with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Dates for Filing Applications for some categories in the Family-Sponsored and Employment-Based preferences have been adjusted to better reflect a timeframe justifying immediate action in the application process.
The Dates for Filing Applications sections (sections 4.B. and 5.B.) which have been adjusted have been identified in Bold type.
PLEASE REVIEW THE REVISED VISA BULLETIN FOR OCTOBER 2015 EFFECTIVE AS OF SEPTEMBER 25, 2015 TO SEE IF THIS CHANGE HAS AFFECTED YOUR ELIGIBILITY TO FILE THE ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS APPLICATION
Please be advised that DHS will rely on this revised bulletin, rather than the bulletin published on September 9, 2015, when considering whether an individual is eligible to file an application for adjustment of status.
