The October State Department Visa Bulletin is out. We have broken it into sections which include this month, the last two months, and this month a year ago so you can see how the bulletin has moved. We have only included those dates which may be of interest to healthcare workers. The full bulletin with all dates can be found here.

Department of State issues no comments about the status of EB-2 and Eb-3 cases in this month’s Visa Bulletin. We are disappointed to see so little movement for the first month of the new year. Don’t forget that the government runs on a calendar year that begins on October 1. This is when the allotment of visas for the next year becomes available. It is unfortunate to see so little movement in the first month of the next year’s visa availability.
