Visa Bulletin for November 2016
DOS released the Visa Bulletin for November 2016, which includes "Application Final Action Dates" and "Dates for Filing Applications" for the family- and employment-based categories. The bulletin also includes information regarding the extension of the employment-based, fourth preference religious workers (SR) and employment-based, fifth preference pilot (I5 and R5) categories. It also includes a reminder to Diversity Visa (DV) 2017 lottery entrants to check their status using their unique confirmation number on the Entrant Status Check (ESC) website. USCIS has not yet advised whether it will accept adjustment of status applications for family- or employment-based petitions based on filing dates, rather than final action dates, in November 2016.
