I Will Tell You The Truth About Visa Bulletin October 3 In The Next 3 Seconds | visa bulletin october 3

The sixth annual Visa Bulletin took place in Washington D.C. last week. With the exception of the obvious topics of immigration (see my blog on that below), the subject of the Visa Bulletin is a closely held one amongst the legal and business community. That's because the law is very complicated, and there are a lot of gray areas. Hence, there are a lot of professionals who are hired by the government to pen this brief annual report.

With regard to the legal issues related to the implementation of the USA Visa System, there will be two important events that take place in October 2020. These are the first priority date visa bulletin for nationals of Cuba and North Korea and the second, which occurs one month later, is the implementation of the biometric system for international banking. Both are significant events in the year ahead, and I'll discuss those topics below.

On the subject of international banking, which is essentially the latest effort by the United States government to keep i-485 compliant, we need to take a look at the filing chart for October 2020. This filing chart is the tool that the Department of Homeland Security uses to implement all of the activities related to the biometric system for international banking. It should be noted that the final action dates mentioned in the chart do not coincide with the proposed implementation dates. That said, however, it is likely that the Department of Homeland Security will announce its intention to implement the biometric system before the filing chart reaches the end of its ten-year life cycle.

As previously mentioned, the second priority date for filing is October 2020. With regard to this, there will be a new mandatory waiting area in front of the visa desks at all U.S. ports of entry, in addition to additional security checkpoints. The reason for this is to increase security and prevent illegal immigrants from entering the United States. Although these added security measures are not expected to impact the total number of immigration cases filed by passengers in the United States, they do represent a significant increase in their likelihood of being detected.

The visa bulletin also discusses the final action dates associated with the visa interview component of the screening process. Specifically, it discusses the last day for candidates applying to the United States through any of the Visa Waiver Programs. As was mentioned above, the proposed deadline for filing for the i-485 is July 10th. The proposed timeframe for the final confirmation stage of the application process continues until the applicant has been fully approved for travel to the United States under the i-485. Therefore, the last day for applicants to file their paperwork with the USCIS by July 10th will represent two charts.

As was also mentioned in the previous Visa Bulletin, there will be a significant increase in the number of CBP officers assigned to the deportation processing areas. Specifically, there will be an increase in the number of officers assigned to the U.S. ports of entry, and there will also be an increase in officers assigned to the international departure area. In addition, there will be a simultaneous increase in the number of officer positions at the U.S. consular offices.

As was also discussed in the previous Visa Bulletin, there are some staffing changes that will occur at U.S. consular offices in February of next year. Specifically, there will be a reduction in the number of visa interview agents and an increase in the number of visa counselors who will work at the consular offices. While there is no official word on the number of positions that will be created or the specific duties that will be fulfilled by these additional personnel, it is likely that the number of visa applicants filing through the i-BIL will increase. For that matter, visa applicants should be aware of the staffing changes that will occur at their local visa application centers as early as possible.

Finally, there will be a review of the I-BOL process at the end of the calendar year. The CBP officer assigned to the USCIS visa section will be required to complete a survey of the current situation. Specifically, the officer will need to review all records that were generated in the previous year and those records that have been reviewed as of the current year. Those records that were processed in the previous year but subsequently overturned will be required to be retaken. Official guidance from CBP regarding the review of visa files can be obtained at the visa applicant's port of entry or at the USCIS website.
