DOS, Mar. 22, 2023

"Based on INA standards and expected demand from these countries for family-sponsored and employment-based preference visas, the Department of State is no longer including a separate column covering applicants chargeable to El Salvador, Guatemala, or Honduras in the charts titled, “Final Action Dates for Employment-Based Preference Cases” and “Dates for Filing of Employment-Based Visa Applications,” for applicants who are seeking an immigrant visa in the EB-4 category.  Final action and filing dates for applicants from these three countries are now provided in the column headed “All Chargeability Areas Except Those Listed.”  The Department has submitted for publication a public notice in the Federal Register to further explain this change."
