What to make of the Visa Bulletin & our predictions (as of Feb 2020)?
Last Fiscal Year (from October 2019 to September 2020), the Visa Office moved the date forward way more than Covid-19 and the Green Card suspension warranted (in order, they said to keep applicants in NVC Processing ‘motivated’ to work on their application). But a lot of Family Green Cards went unused, and we are not getting them back (they were transferred to Employment Green Cards). So at the beginning of the present Fiscal Year (from October 2020 to January 2021), the Visa Bulletin stopped moving forward, and nothing happened.

But, since January 2021 saw signs of life that were confirmed in February 2021, as well as optimistic statements from the Visa Office (from 2 to 4 week advancement for All Countries depending on the preference). This can only be explained if the end of the Green Card suspension is anticipated either at the end of March, or hopefully earlier.

FAQ

Applicants whose Priority Date is very close to becoming ‘current’ when compared to the relevant Final Action date might find ‘Next Month’s Predictions’ helpful. Predictions are not always accurate, especially short-term ones, but it is meant to help applicants plan their next step in the Green Card process.

‘Next Month’ is the month after the latest known Visa Bulletin issued by the State Department.

For example, during the month of October the Visa Bulletin for the month of October is what the State Department calls the ‘current Visa Bulletin’. The Visa Bulletin for the month of November is what the State Department calls the ‘upcoming Visa Bulletin’.

Immigration Planner’s ‘Next Month’ is the Visa Bulletin for the month after the ‘upcoming Visa Bulletin’. In our example, December.

Note: when the ‘upcoming Visa Bulletin’ has not been issued yet, Immigration Planner’s ‘Next Month’ is simply the month after the ‘current Visa Bulletin’.
