DOS posted the July 2021 visa bulletin. In addition to final action dates and dates for filing for family and employment-based petitions, it contains notes on the DV category and DV category rank cut-offs which will apply in July and August, scheduled expiration of I5 and R5 visa categories, information about monthly “Chats with Charlie,” and more.

The next "Chats with Charlie" on the DOS YouTube Channel will take place on June 18, 2021, at 1:00 pm (ET) to discuss the July Visa Bulletin. Questions can be emailed to ahead of the event with “Chat with Charlie Question” in the subject line.

Applicants in all other family-sponsored preference categories must use the Dates for Filing chart. Applicants in all employment-based preference categories must use the Final Action Dates chart.
