On September 25th, the Department of State (DOS) published an ‘updated’ Visa Bulletin for October 2015. This bulletin supersedes the bulletin for October 2015 that was originally published on September 9, 2015.
With the publishing of this updated visa bulletin the Federal Government has now caused numerous foreign-born individuals to be ineligible to file adjustment of status petitions, contrary to what they were promised earlier in the month.
Applicants should use the chart published by DOS on September 25th when filing for adjustment of status. Please be advised that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will rely on this revised bulletin rather than the bulletin published on September 9, 2015, when considering whether an individual is eligible to file his or her application for adjustment of status.
You can view the updated chart from the visa bulletin at uscis.gov.
ISS will continue to provide updates regarding this situation as more information becomes available.
