November 2020 Visa Bulletin Extends The Use Of The Filing Date Chart For Employment-Based Green Cards

Posted on Oct 29, 2020 by Chris Prescott

Last month’s visa bulletin saw a surge in the priority dates for Indian Nationals and USCIS’ announcement that the filing date chart could be used was welcomed news.  This allowed many Indian Nationals to file an adjustment of status application (sometimes with an EB-3 downgrade) and apply for employment authorization and travel document.

Today, the November visa bulletin was released and once again USCIS has stated that individuals may use the filing date chart.  The dates themselves have not changed from the October visa bulletin.  Therefore, an Indian national with a priority date earlier than the dates listed below is eligible to file:

EB-1Sept 1, 2020
EB-2May 15, 2011
EB-3Jan 1, 2015.

For those interested in filing an EB-3 downgrade please refer to our article from last month:


At PLG we will start taking cases today based on the November visa bulletin, but just like last month, we will deal with cases on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you are interested in filing in November please contact either Chris Prescott PLG Partner and Attorney at or our Attorney Monique Mutombo at
