USCIS Issues Urgent Guidance and FAQs for Individuals Eligible for Employment-based Adjustment

USCIS recently issued guidance urging anyone who may be eligible for an employment-based adjustment of status to file their adjustment of status application, accompanied by a valid Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, as soon as possible.

As such, USCIS has also issued new FAQ’s, which can be found using the following link: https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-processes-and-procedures/fiscal-year-2022-employment-based-adjustment-of-status-faqs The answers to the following questions were addressed, amongst others: -How many employment-based visas did USCIS and DOS use in FY 2021? How many employment-based visas went unused in FY 2021? -What measures has USCIS taken during FY 2022 to use the available employment-based visas? -If I did not file a Form I-693 with my pending Form I-485, should I send one in now or wait for USCIS to request it, and why? -If I receive a notice of the transfer of my Form I-485 to another office, does this signal that my case is active and moving toward adjudication? -Why did USCIS encourage new EB-1 and EB-2 Filings from January through May as well as Transfer of Basis Requests from EB-3? As always, please contact your GG&W attorney should you have any questions as to how this may impact your case.
