I’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year! I hope the new year brings peace and prosperity to you all, and most of all, a successful Green Card story!

A reminder for those that understand what CEAC data is… the CEAC system will start showing 2020 case status from midnight on the Eastern time zone in the USA. You enter your case number without the leading zeros and you will see the status – which will be “at NVC” for most of you.

To understand all the codes, check my FAQ entry linked here.

Now, for those that understand what we can find out with CEAC data and are getting ready to scrape – the hope is that we can use an automatic way to get the data, at least for the first bulk run which is the biggest. Xarthisius has worked on the program to do that in a fully automatic way, so hopefully that will work and wel will expect CEAC updates as soon as possible in January. I will post about that in the next few days!
