What Is a Visa Bulletin?

A visa bulletin is a table that shows how long certain groups of people have waited to be approved for a visa. Visa bulletins can also be used to tell if you are eligible to apply for a visa. The U.S. government limits how many immigrants come into the country per year. This applies to both employer-sponsored and family sponsored applicants. These limitations create a backlog.

The Department of State (DOS) releases a visa bulletin every month. The main focus is to describe how many immigrant visas are available. Immigration is tightly regulated. The government caps the number of foreign nationals allowed in the country per year. Every immigrant who wants to live in the U.S. needs their own personal immigrant visa number.

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.

In November 2014, the DOS began working with USCIS to make sure that all visa recipients are authorized by Congress and eligible to receive visas.
