The United States Department of State has released the April 2024 Visa Bulletin. The State Department anticipates very little forward movement in priority dates for employment-based categories for the remainder of FY 2024, concluding on September 30, 2024.

Based on the April Visa Bulletin from the State Department, the Final Action cutoff dates for the issuance of an immigrant visa or approval of an adjustment of status application are as follows:

  • EB-1: All other countries will remain unchanged as Current. India will advance to March 1, 2021. China will advance to September 1, 2022.
  • EB-2: China will advance to February 1, 2020. India will advance to April 15, 2012. All other countries will advance to January 15, 2023.
