The Department of State’s Visa Bulletin for May 2019 shows slight forward progress for EB-1 for all chargeability areas except China and India, EB-2 for China and India, EB-3 and Other Workers for China, India, and the Philippines, and EB-5 China and Vietnam. The remainder of the priority dates remain current with per-country quotas not reached.

Regarding EB-1 for China and India, the bulletin notes a continued “extremely high rate of demand” that may require temporary retrogression until October to limit future number use.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that for the month of May, the agency will follow “Dates for Filing” chart for accepting family-based I-485 Adjustment of Status applications and follow the “Final Action Dates” chart for accepting employment-based I-485 Adjustment of Status applications
