Any changes in c1d visa holder status?

can i change my status in u.s. if i have c1d visa. i know it was impossible 1 year ago. any changes now? immigration attorney's answer would be appreciated


Knight (Brit in USA)
Latest version of I-485 still lists non-immigrant crewmen (C1d) visa as being ineligible to adjust status. I don't imagine this will ever change.

Fred S
An alien admitted as a C-1, a D-1 or a D-2 is not eligible under section 248 to change status. It has been this way for decades.

An alien admitted as a C-1 destined to join a vessel or admitted as a D-1 or a D-2 is not eligible to adjust status under section 245. It has been this way for decades.

It is unclear whether you hope someday to change status to another nonimmigrant classification or to adjust status to permanent resident. In either case, if you were admitted C-1, D-1 or D-2, you are not eligible for the benefit you seek.
