The Visa Bulletin lists the availability of immigrant visa numbers during the month of publication. Essentially, it shows the backlogs (or the waiting periods) in each immigrant visa category for a given month. By looking at each month's Visa Bulletin, applicants for immigrant visas can see if they are eligible to complete their immigrant visa process.

Our office receives many inquiries, on a daily basis, asking us to forecast the movement of the priority dates in a specific category. As a result, we created the Visa Bulletin Forecast tool and we are releasing it to the immigrant community, free of charge. The Visa Bulletin Forecast tool allows each immigrant visa applicant to enter his or her preference category, country of chargeability and priority date and obtain an estimate of the wait times before such priority date would become current and the applicant would be eligible to either complete the consular processing (through the National Visa Center, or NVC) or the adjustment of status process (Form I-485).

The Visa Bulletin Forecast tool uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate general estimates of the wait times in a specific category based on historic data. The tool is not intended to serve as legal advice and should be used as a general guideline of the timing. By using the Visa Bulletin Forecast tool, you agree that no attorney-client relationship is established and you do not become a client of the Capitol Immigration Law Group PLLC solely by using the tool.
