Visa Bulletin – Priority Dates for August 2012

Priority dates for August 2012 – Here is the US Immigration Visa Bulletin for August 2012 from the US Department of State.

Immigrant petitioners and beneficiaries are to expect some disappointing movements on this month’s Visa Bulletin. Most of the categories, most specially on the family-based category, moved just a month and some moved just days compared to July 2012 visa bulletin. The F3 category has not moved at all. F3 visa recipients waiting for their visa to be current will have to wait if September 2012 visa bulletin will show some improvement.

US citizens and US permanent residents are encouraged to monitor the monthly visa bulletin to be informed about their immigration petition status. If a priority date becomes current, the petitioner and beneficiary of an immigrant petition is to expect receipt of correspondence from the USCIS and/or National Visa Center on how to proceed with the next step of their immigration process.

There are certain cases that a priority date which was current this month may retrogress the following month. This simply means that the priority date is no longer available, thus, may cause delay on the final immigration steps being taken by the petitioner and/or the applicant.

Here are the priority dates for August 2012:
