    to start with I think every country will be affected but then things should move quickly for those countries not affected

    I agree with you. Once the visas from the Schedule A are used up, they will remove that category, from what I understand reading the Bulletin, and we all nurses will go back to the EB3 category. For those countries whose EB3 category are not backlog then it is good news for nurses there.

    hopefully for all it will be sorted and everyone can move forward. I do feel for the ones who are from countries affected. In a selfish way I am glad I am from one of the countries which shouldn't be affected much but I really do hope things move for eveyone

    To clear up any unanswered questions:

    Those of you that already have interviews scheduled are safe, you have had a number assigned to you from that 50,000. Those of you that do not have an interview scheduled are not safe, especially in the four mentioned countries.

    All petitions will be delayed but then will open up again for those not included. Australia is not included............

    A visa number is not assigned until the end of the process, not when the I-140 gets approved. That is only the initial step.

    Suzanne,
    my I-140 was approved today :-)
    I am an adjustee. Is there anyway, my I-485 will be approved as well even if Schedule A is not current anymore?

    My priority date is before the cut off date,does my dependents or derivative have the same priority date as mine? I already got my visa but my dependents are still waiting for their visa.It is is more than 3 mos now from the date of our interview,no additional documents was asked.Why is it taking long to process my dependents visa? Please reply I value your opinion on this.Thank you

    I think when you passed your I-140 then with the names of your dependents included there then I think you don't have to worry. This is just my opinion.

    Or if they were with you during the interview then there is just a delay in the processing. Just call their hotline and ask them why.
    Had happened to a freind of mine, she received her visa first and her dependents a month later.

    Good luck!

    You should be okay, as long as the petitions were submitted before they stop accepting them.

    As long as they were listed, then visas are reserved for them. But I suggest that you follow up with your atorney and find out what is going on, if anything else is needed. You should be doing that, and not waiting to be contacted.

    This November 2006 Visa Bulletin is something that was not really expected from my point of view. First I dont understand when is the cut-off day? There is no cut-off dayfor Schedule A because the I-140 petitions will be accepted even after November 2006. They will continuously get approved but the visa number will not be assigned until the Schedule A turns current again.
    My second misunderstanding is that seems like everybody who have applied before Oct 2005 could get approved for immigration visa as well as to adjust their status. But I know people who have I-485 adjusted after October 2005 (and I am talking about Schedule A applicants)
    So i am really kinda confused. My I-140 is approved already but my I-765 has not approved yet. And what will happen to my I-485?
    Could the current Nov Visa Bulletin be mistaken and be instead October 2005 - October 2006?
    :wink2:
    Oh, well, will see what will happen.
    Good luck to all!

    The cut off date is for the visa processing. And you base your PD( the date when your I-140 was received by USCIS, Notice of Action) on the cut off date.

    Processing of petition has nothing to do with cut off dates, its the release of visas.

    Hi all,

    "....any retro will apply to petitions submitted after October 31st, so you are safe, yours will arrive at Immigration within 4 days. Any petitions that go in after October 31st 2006 will retro to October 1, 2005."
