has refreshed the CEAC data so that we can now see the visa issuance progress up to the end of January. The data shows that there are some regions where the backlog of document processing is holding back many cases from being scheduled, although that varies by region.

In the video below I explain my thoughts on the backlog and what effects that could have on the next VB. It’s easier to explain while looking at the data, so lease take a look at the video.

The data is available at Xarthisius’s site here.
