What is the Visa Bulletin?
The U.S. Department of State (DOS), the agency in charge of visa allocation, has recently released the July 2017 Visa Bulletin. The Visa Bulletin summarizes the availability of immigrant visas during a specific month and includes Final Action Dates and Dates for Filing Applications, indicating when immigrant visa applicants should be notified by DOS to assemble and submit required documentation to the National Visa Center.
What information is contained in the Visa Bulletin?
There are always visas available for immediate relatives (spouses, unmarried minor children, and parents) of U.S. citizens. However, there are numerical and per-country limits for all other immigrant visa applicants, which can result in long visa wait times.
To help these applicants determine the earliest date they can file their immigrant applications, the DOS publishes the Visa Bulletin every month. This bulletin contains charts and information for Family-Based and Employment-Based immigrants.
