Upcoming Changes


Until Congress passes an immigration bill and President Biden signs it into law, there are no new options for people to obtain legal status.  Please seek the advice of a lawyer to discuss what legal option are available to you.

Will Congress pass an Immigration Bill?

President Biden has proposed a sweeping immigration bill that would make more people eligible for legal status.  AILA will be advocating for Congress to pass this bill and other bills that improve the U.S. immigration system. At this time, Congress has not passed any immigration bill into law.  This means that no new options to apply for legal status have been created, and no broad legalization program has been adopted.

How quickly will change occur?

Although there have been many announcements with promised changes, many of them will take time to be implemented.  Policies, rules, and laws will need to be put in place first.  This means you may not see an immediate impact or be able to access new benefits in the short term.

NVC Visa Processing and Cases pending
at US Embassies and US Consulates

Most US Embassies and Consulates are fully operating, but they are operating with limited staff and backlogs.  However, there is still a significant backlot for immigrant visas (IV) and nonimmigrant visas (NIV) and you should expect longer than normal wait and processing times.  

Where can I get more information?

Please call our office to schedule a consultation to discuss your case with an attorney.  The attorney will be able to properly determine what options may or may not be available to you.
