August Visa Bulletin

The Department of State (DOS) released the August Visa Bulletin and all categories across all countries are retrogressed. Given the “use it or lose it” laws in effect relative to immigrant visa (green card) usage, summer retrogression is not unusual and actually indicates that the USCIS and DOS are working efficiently and using all of the visas available however, the widespread nature of the current retrogression is screaming for legislative relief from Congress. The August Visa Bulletin is not a very accurate predictor of how long the wait will be for visa issuance; that will not be better judged until the October Visa bulletin is released in mid September.
