Employment-Based Visa Numbers Done for This Year

The Department of State (DOS), which is charged with allotting and issuing visa numbers, has informed immigration practitioners that employment-based visa numbers (for lawful permanent resident cases) are no longer available for fiscal year 2009, which ends September 30. The new fiscal year (2010), which is around the corner on October 1, will re-start the available visa numbers and cases will be processed according to the October 2009 visa bulletin at that time.
