April 2024 Visa Bulletin – Most Categories Hop Forward a Month or Two

The Visa Bulletin is released monthly by the Department of State and is used to determine when a sponsored foreign national can submit the final step of the green card process, or if already pending, when the final step can be adjudicated.

Below is a summary of the April Visa Bulletin, including Final Action Dates and changes from the previous month.

India:  EB-1 advances 5 months, to March 1, 2021. Other categories progress 1.5 months: EB-2 to April 15, 2012; and EB-3 and EB-3 Other Workers, to August 15, 2012.

China:  EB-1 advances 1.5 months, to September 1, 2022. EB-2 progresses 1 month, to February 1, 2020. Other categories stall: EB-3 at September 1, 2020; and EB-3 Other Workers at January 1, 2017.

All Other Countries:  EB-1 remains current. EB-2 advances almost 2 months, to January 15, 2023. EB-3 progresses 2.5 months, to November 22, 2022. EB-3 Other Workers moves forward 1 month, to October 8, 2020 (except the Philippines, which holds at May 1, 2020).

NOTE 1:  USCIS will accept I-485 applications in April based on Final Action Dates, not the more favorable Dates for Filing chart.
