November 2018 Visa Bulletin

The visa bulletin hardly moved for the month of November 2018.

EB1 remains backlogged. The final action date for EB1 remains April 1, 2017 for all areas except China and India, which are still backed up to June 1, 2016.  For individuals who are interviewed at USCIS during this time, post-interview the file will be sent to the National Benefits Center awaiting a current visa number.  Note that this is consistent with the September Visa Bulletin, which suggested that little forward movement is anticipated before December.

The November 2018 visa bulletin hardly jumped forward in other areas. It lists the following EB2 and EB3 final action dates:

EB-2 Worldwide and all areas except India and China: Action Date = current
EB-2 India: Action Date = March 26, 2009 (same)
EB-2 China: Action Date = May 15, 2015

EB-3 Worldwide and all areas except India and China: Action Date = current
EB-3 India: Action Date = January 1, 2009 (same)
EB-3 China: Action Date = June 1, 2015 (same)

For Family Cases, the F2A final action date shifted slightly to September 15, 2016 for all areas, except Mexico, which moved forward one month to September 1, 2016.
