The webinar will take place on Thursday,October 27, from 1 to 2:15 p.m. Eastern Time.
CIS Ombudsman Phyllis Coven and her staff will engage in a dialogue with USCIS representatives. We will cover employment-based immigrant visa usage in FY 2022 and what to expect in FY 2023, the effect of cutoff date retrogression in the Visa Bulletin, concerns specific to derivative applicants, and other related issues.
During this information sharing session, participants may submit questions and comments.
