What is the Visa Bulletin?  

The Visa Bulletin (BV) is a guide that the Citizenship and Immigration Services and the United States Department of State have to define who can or cannot receive an immigrant visa, depending on the date the person submitted their application. That date is called Priority date and this determines the beneficiary's place on the waiting list. 

 The reason for the Visa Bulletin is that immigration law limits the number of people per category who can immigrate to the United States each year. When the number of applicants is greater than the number of available visas, a delay is generated.   

 Each month the Visa Bulletin announces the priority or cut-off date, which means that in order for an immigrant to adjust status, in other words, obtain residency, the immigrant must have a priority date prior to the closing date of the category in the Newsletter. 

 In a family petition-based immigration case, the priority date is the date that the USCIS receives the petition. In an employment-based case, the priority date is the date the Department of Labor receives the request to certify that the worker is eligible for permanent residence. When the law does not require a labor certification, it is the day the USCIS receives the petition.  

 Generally the date of the Visa Bulletin works forward, but if the State Department determines that visas for a certain category or country are being used faster than expected, the cut-off date can be delayed to paralyze
