November 2009 Visa Bulletin

Posted on October 10th, 2009, by James Livesay in Immigration Law. Comments Off on November 2009 Visa Bulletin

The Visa Bulletin for November 2009 is now available. The Department of State (DOS) issues the Visa Bulletin, which summarizes the number of available immigrant visas (green cards) according to preference categories, each month.

The Employment-Based First Preference (EB1) category continues to be current for all countries in the Visa Bulletin for November 2009.

The Employment-Based Second Preference (EB2) category continues to be current for all countries, except India and China. The EB2 cutoff date for China moved forward almost 10 weeks to April 1, 2005. However, India actually retrogressed in the EB2 category by 2 months, to January 22, 2005.

After the new fiscal year started with the October Visa Bulletin, visas remain available in the Employment-Based Third Preference (EB3) category for skilled/professional workers, with a cutoff date of April 22, 2001 for India and June 1, 2002 for all other countries.

Visas also remain available in the new fiscal year in the EB3 “Other Worker” categories, with a cutoff date of April 22, 2001 for India and June 1, 2001 for all other countries.
