September 2022 Visa Bulletin – A Frosty End to the Fiscal Year as All Categories Freeze

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 September Visa Bulletin, including Final Action Dates and changes from the previous month.  

China:   EB-1 remains current; EB-2 remains frozen at April 1, 2019; and EB-3 freezes at April 22, 2018.

India:    EB-1 remains current; EB-2 remains frozen at December 1, 2014; and EB-3 freezes at February 15, 2012.

All Other Countries:   EB-1, EB-2 and EB-3 remain current (except for EB-3 Other Workers which has a cutoff date of May 8, 2019)

NOTE:   USCIS will NOT accept I-485 applications in September based on the Department of State’s more favorable Dates for Filing chart. Only cases that are current based on the Final Action Dates chart will be accepted.
