Many Employment Visa Number Cut-Off Dates Advance in March
The Department of State’s Visa Office announced that visa number cut-off date movement for March in several employment categories is significant. Advancement of the priority cut-off dates now, the Department said, “should prevent a situation later in the fiscal year where there are large amounts of numbers available but not enough time to use them.” If an expected increase in number use materializes from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service processing, future cut-off date movements could slow or stop, the Department warned. The India employment-based second preference category remains unavailable in March.
