🇲🇽Mexico Visa Bulletin for June 2019

F1Aug 8, 1997NoneWith no advancement in June 2019, it feels that F1-Mexico is more or less 'stuck'. It looks like we are not over the significant 'inventory' of applications to be processed created by the significant advancement we saw in Fiscal Year 2018 (the best year of the last 20 years by quite a margin).F1Predictions
F2AJul 1, 2017+8 weeksF2A-Mexico has been doing at least as well as F2A-All Countries. A great month again in June 2019 with +8 weeks.F2A Predictions
F2BMar 15, 1998+4 weeksThe 4-week advancement of F2B-Mexico is not as massive as what we have experienced from February 2019 to May 2019, but it is still solid. We have confirmation that we are back on solid ground.F2B Predictions
F3Feb 22, 1996+1 weeksWith a 1-week advancement in June 2019, we maintain positive movement for F3-Mexico. We might be out of the processing of the 'inventory' of applications built during a strong Fiscal Year 2018.F3 Predictions
F4Feb 8, 1998NoneFor the 5th consecutive month, there was no advancement in June 2019 for F4-Mexico. This follows a disappointing beginning of Fiscal Year 2019 (+2-week and +1-week in October and November 2018) and a weak Fiscal Year 2018. When will things turn around?F4 Predictions

If I am going through Adjustment of Status, can I use the Filing Date?

It is generally not easy for applicants from Mexico (except F2A) to use the ‘Filing Date’ of the Visa Bulletin because of how long they need to maintain legal status in the United States before they can file their Form I-485. Here is the latest:

When will the Interview be scheduled?

The process of scheduling the interview is initiated by U.S. immigration agencies when the following two requirements are met:

  • The applicant’s Priority Date is ‘current’ when compared to the relevant ‘Final Action Date’
  • The applicant’s Green Card Case is ‘interview-ready’ (also called ‘case complete’ or ‘documentarily qualified’, meaning that all the proper Forms, Evidence, and Fees necessary to make a decision on the Green Card Application have been received by U.S. Immigration Agencies).

Being ‘current’ means that the applicant’s Priority Date (which is when Form I-130 was filed) is ‘earlier’ than the relevant Final Action Date. If the relevant Final Action Date is January 1st 2018, then applicants with a Priority Date ‘earlier’ (that is up to December 31st 2016) are said to be current.
The relevant Final Action Date refers to the Final Action Date that applies to applicants based on their preference classification (F1, F2A, F2B, F3, F4) and countries of birth (Mexico, All Countries, …).

The month when the applicant’s Priority Date is current, U.S. Immigration agencies look for an available Interview slot in the month after next (if the applicant’s priority date becomes current in January, then they will start looking for slots in March). How long applicants wait depend on how busy the U.S. Consulate or USCIS Field office is.
