USCIS PROVIDES EMPLOYMENT-BASED ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS FAQs



On December 8, 2023, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about employment-based (EB) adjustment of status.

 

According to USCIS, the EB annual limit for fiscal year (FY) 2024 will be higher than was typical before the pandemic, though lower than in FY 2021-2023. They have made a dedicated effort to use as many available employment-based visas as possible in FY 2024, which ends on September 30, 2024.

 

USCIS estimates that the FY 2024 employment-based annual limit will be approximately 161,000, due to unused family-sponsored visa numbers from FY 2023 being added to the employment-based limit for FY 2024. In addition to the 161,000 overall limit, in the EB-5 category there are 10,874 extra visas available that Congress has allowed to carry over from the previous two (2) fiscal years.
