Green Card

Employment-Based Green Cards Processing Plans

By September 29, 2022October 10th, 2022No Comments

The U.S. State Department has projected that approximately 200,000 employment-based immigrant visas (green cards) will be accessible in the upcoming fiscal year. This number of visas is higher than the limit in the pre-pandemic years but is lower than the amount in the previous two fiscal years. Due to unused family-based visa numbers from the previous fiscal year, number of employment-based green cards is higher as they have been allocated to this year’s available visas. Due to the unused green cards in 2021, more employment-based green cards are going to be issued, which is a record surplus. The demand for EB green cards is higher than ever, so the large amount of visas available for this fiscal year will be beneficial to many recipients and employers as well. The availability of these green cards will alleviate the stress of companies searching for skilled workers in a variety of industries. Overall, securing these green cards is beneficial for employees on temporary H-1B visas, and guarantees long-term certainty to other types of workers.
