The bulletin states that no SR visas may be issued overseas, or final action taken on adjustment of status cases, after midnight September 29, 2024. Visas issued prior to that date will be valid only until September 29, 2024, and all individuals seeking admission in the non-minister special immigrant category must be admitted into the United States by midnight September 29, 2024.
