April 2024 Visa Bulletin: Green Card Updates and Progress for Indian Applicants

The United States Department of State has recently released the visa bulletin for April 2024, unveiling significant progress in the Final Action Dates and Filing Dates for Indian applicants across various Green Card categories. This development brings hope and optimism to many individuals and families eagerly awaiting their immigration journey to the United States.

One notable advancement is observed in the Second preference (F2A) category, which caters to spouses and children (unmarried and under 21 years of age) of lawful permanent residents. The Final Action Date for the F2A visa has moved forward from June 2020 to September 2020, indicating improved prospects for eligible family members to obtain permanent residency in the U.S.

Similarly, there is encouraging news for applicants in the Fourth preference (F4) category, designed for brothers and sisters of U.S. Citizens aged 21 years and older. The date for filing for the F4 family-based green card has advanced to April 2006 from February 2006, signifying enhanced opportunities for eligible individuals to initiate the immigration process.

However, it’s essential to note that while there is progress for Indian applicants in certain categories, the availability of immigrant numbers remains constrained for others. According to the April 2024 visa bulletin, China will maintain its Final Action Date at December 15, 2015, and India at December 1, 2020, for the EB-5 Unreserved categories (C5, T5, I5, and R5). Other nations will also maintain their existing statuses. Additionally, there will be no changes to the EB-5 set-aside categories (High Unemployment, Infrastructure, and Rural).

The visa bulletin serves as a crucial resource for immigrant visa applicants, providing guidance on when they should prepare and submit relevant documentation to the National Visa Center. By staying informed about the Final Action Dates and Dates for Filing Applications, individuals can navigate the immigration process effectively and maximize their chances of success.

Overall, the April 2024 visa bulletin brings positive developments for Indian applicants seeking to reunite with their families or pursue permanent residency in the United States. As the immigration landscape continues to evolve, it is essential for applicants to stay updated on the latest developments and seek professional guidance to ensure a smooth and successful immigration journey.
