What is the Visa Bulletin?

The Visa Bulletin is a monthly publication issued by the U.S. Department of State that provides information about the availability of immigration visas. This bulletin is particularly relevant for those seeking immigrant visas based on preference categories, such as immediate family members, second-degree relatives, professionals, and workers with specific skills.

The bulletin presents a scheme of dates and categories, indicating when applicants in different preference categories can proceed to the next step of their processes. The dates are grouped by countries of origin and the type of relationship with the sponsor in the case of family visas.

Understanding the Visa Bulletin is crucial for those waiting for visa availability, as it helps determine when they can move forward with the immigration process. It’s important to note that the dates in the bulletin may advance or retrogress over time, depending on demand and visa availability.
