September 2014 Visa Bulletin

The U.S. Department of State (DOS) has released its September 2014 Visa Bulletin.

The Visa Bulletin establishes per-country priority date cutoffs that regulate the flow of adjustment of status (AOS) and consular immigrant visa applications.

Foreign nationals may file applications to adjust their status to that of permanent residents or to obtain approval of immigrant visas at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad, provided that their priority dates are prior to the respective cutoff dates specified by the DOS.

The September Employment Visa Bulletin shows:

The India EB-2 category moved forward by over 3 months to May 1, 2009.

The Philippines EB-3 category moved forward by 10 months to April 1, 2011.

Cutoff dates in most other employment-based categories remain unchanged.
