Monday, October 9, 2023

The Visa Bulletin is released monthly by the Department of State and is used to determine when a sponsored foreign national can submit the final step of the green card process, or if already pending, when the final step can be adjudicated.

Below is a summary of the November Visa Bulletin, including Final Action Dates and changes from the previous month.

India:  No movement in any category. EB-1 halts at January 1, 2017; EB-2 at January 1, 2012; EB-3 and EB-3 Other Workers at May 1, 2012.
