September Visa Bulletin
The Department of State (DOS) has released the final visa bulletin of this fiscal year. The Final Action dates remained virtually unchanged for India and China but, the Philippines EB2 and EB3 saw big jumps forward as did EB2 for all others. The DOS also announced that the worldwide limit for FY-2017 was set at 140,000 for employment based and the per-country limit was affixed at 25,620. With the October Visa Bulletin, the new fiscal year will start and we expect several retrogressed categories including EB1 India and China and EB2 all other and Philippines to return to current.
