Important Concepts of Immigration

Priority date is a United States immigration concept. It is the date when a principal applicant first reveals his or her intent of immigration to the US government. Each person who files a petition with the USCIS receives a priority date, which is the day that the government obtained your petition. A priority date establishes a person’s place in line to get an immigrant visa. Keep this date handy since you will need it to compare to the dates found in this bulletin. Remember that your priority date does not move, and you cannot change it except under certain circumstances. The priority dates are not established until USCIS approves the immigration petition.
