June 2024 Visa Bulletin Updates for Religious Workers

Last Updated

June 21, 2024

The Visa Bulletin is issued by the Department of State monthly and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) determines which chart it is going to use to determine priority dates for a particular month.

For June 2024, for the EB-4 category, where religious workers belong, USCIS is going to use the Final Action Dates chart with the priority date of November 1, 2020. This means there has been no change since May 2024.

If you are submitting an I-485 Adjustment of Status Application in June 2024 for a religious worker based on an approved I-360 Special Immigrant Petition, you must check the priority date of the I-360 (the date the I-360 was filed with USCIS) to ensure the religious worker is eligible to submit his or her I-485 this month. If the priority date is not current, the religious worker is not yet eligible to adjust status. For June 2024, if the priority date on I-360 approval notice is before November 1, 2020, the I-485 can be filed this month. For more information, please contact your RIS Attorney.
