    Good news. Everyone will be waiting for next month's Visa Bulletin :spin:

    This month's Visa Bulletin was a big jump from the last. If the trend continues (knock on wood), next month's Bulletin will cover those who filed in 2006 and hopefully visa fee bills and DS-230 forms are going to start to be sent again and those whose DS-230 forms that were previously sent back because of unavailability of visas can be accepted again.

    I'm sure this is the same for those undergoing AOS.

    Thanks for the update.

    Until actual visas are current and available, this will not help those that are under the AOS. The visas are still not current for all, and that is what is needed for the AOS petitions to be accepted. Those that started the process that long ago, and their documents were correct, already have their green card.

    18 months ago, the green card processing was just a matter of months, no more than 7 or so on average.

    Congratulations to those whose PD's are already current!!

    Just a question:
    How long will it take for a consular interview to be scheduled if one is already "Documentarily Qualified"(as per the US Embassy) and PD is already current?

    Thanks!!

    Oh yeah... that's right. Forgot about that. They have to wait for next month's Visa Bulletin if it will forward some more.

    What many of you are failing to understand, just because your PD date was before the new cut-off date, you still need to go thru the same process that you would have to go thru at any time before you will get an interview date. That means the visa bill being paid, the DS-230 being submitted and approved, and then the file being completed before it is sent to the US Embassy for your interview to even be scheduled. So for many, this is not going to change things. It can still take months and months to get to that point.

    And until they actually go thru and see how many that will be getting visas with the new dates, I do not see them making changes for the Visa Bulletin for July. Remember that this information that you are seeing is for June, it is not even in effect as of yet. US Immigration actually is not operating at full staffing right now either, something that more of you are not even aware of. The centers in the US are operating at much less than full staff, and this is for the offices where people have to go if they are in the US.

    You still must have a completed file before you will be scheduled for an interview. Never before that point. And the next issue is that many agencies, if you are under one, are not wanting to do anything until they know when things will end. And for those of you that have PD dates from two years ago, it means that there were problems with your agency and or attorney to begin with. Definitely, not the fault of the US Immigration offices. You should have had a green card by now and be in the US. Correct information was not submitted, and or payment was not made when required, but you will see US Immigration being blamed by the agencies, but that is not the case in most instances.

    Until visas are actually current for all, and that is not going to happen until there are more visas additionally recapped, etc. That is not going to happen for months. Andn there are more waiting for visas than there will be visas available, no matter what they do. Dependents currently get a visa from that group of visas.
