What Is the USCIS Visa Bulletin?

USCIS Visa Bulletin is a monthly publication put out by The United States Department of State (DOS) that contains information on the number of available immigrant visas. It is also called the "immigration backlog" since it refers to the number of people who have applied to immigrate to the country.
