The Visa Bulletin for August 2013 that summarizes the availability of immigrant visas for the month of August 2013 is now CURRENT FOR THE PHILIPPINES for spouses and children of permanent residents under 21 years of age and not married.

This means that the husbands or wives and children of permanent residents under 21 years of age and not married WHO HAVE APPROVED PETITIONS CAN NOW APPLY TO ADJUST THEIR STATUS and APPLY FOR THEIR GREEN CARDS if they are  presently in the United States and have a lawful immigration status. For those spouses and children of green card holders waiting in the Philippines should have received a notice from the US Visa Center that their green cards are now available for consular processing at the U.S. Embassy in Manila.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THOSE WHO HAVE APPROVED PETITIONS MUST APPLY ON OR BEFORE AUGUST 31, 2013 AS THE VISA CATEGORY FOR SPOUSES AND CHILDREN UNDER 21 MAY CHANGE OR RETROGRESS AFTER AUGUST 31, 2013.
