Special Notice from USCIS:(Show/Hide)

D. OVERSUBSCRIPTION OF THE EMPLOYMENT-BASED THIRD PREFERENCE “OTHER WORKER” CATEGORY

Continued heavy applicant demand, primarily for CIS adjustment of status cases, has required the oversubscription of the Employment Third preference “Other Worker” (EW) category for March. This action has been necessary in order to hold EW number use within the FY-2005 annual numerical limit. Because of the relatively low (5,000) annual limit for the EW category, it is possible that the supply of numbers could be exhausted prior to the end of the fiscal year.
