Hi there I’m just interested if applicants of the 

i-130 route will be subject to the new public charge? From what I’ve read it only affects individuals who have or are in the process of Adjustment of status?

I-130 is just a petition. There is no public charge associated with it. Both family-based AOS applicants and those obtaining a visa via consular processing use the I-130.

 

The answer to if the new public charge rule applies is mixed...

The new public charge rule - with the I-944 - will go into effect later this month for AOS applicants. It is a DHS rule. DOS handles visas, not DHS. So technically the answer to your question regarding its impact on a visa is "No".

That said, there is a very similar (not identical) rule by DOS that is not implemented at this time. This would impact immigrant visas. There is not a timeline for when that will be implemented - could be tomorrow, could be a year from now, could be never.
