EB-2 and EB-2/NIW Retrogression Imminent Worldwide

Breaking news: The Department of State has recently noted just minutes ago that the 2nd preference category for employment-based petitions will retrogress at the end of the month of August. This means that anyone wishing to adjust their status for the remainder of the fiscal year must file their I-485 before this time.

Furthermore, it seems that the EB1 category will now NOT return to current on October 1st, 2018 but rather remain retrogressed worldwide until December 2018 at the earliest.

We will keep you posted about further developments.
