The U.S. Department of State – Bureau of Consular Affairs has published the September 2019 Visa Bulletin.
The Bulletin revealed a final action date of October 22, 2014 for applicants from Mainland China and Vietnam which advanced one week from the previous Bulletin.While applicants from India saw their final action date advance to September 1, 2017 up from October 15, 2014 in the August Bulletin. Final action dates remain current for all others countries.
From the Bulletin:
” There has been a combination of a dramatic change in the USCIS demand pattern for adjustment of status applicants during July, and a larger than anticipated return of unused numbers which had been provided to consular offices for July use. As a result, it has been possible to advance the Employment First and Second preference September final action dates for most countries, as well as the India Employment Fifth preference.”
