The October 2020 Visa Bulletin will be released around the 10th of September 2020. However, it can be as late as the 15th, or even later occasionally. As soon as it becomes available, we'll publish the visa bulletin below on this page.
You can also sign up to receive free email notifications below. We will automatically send you an email alert when a new Visa Bulletin is officially released.
October is the first month of a new fiscal year, and cutoff dates are expected to advance or at least return to normal levels established before the summer.
You are welcome to visit our Visa Bulletin Graph to see the overall trend of cutoff date movement.

This page displays individual visa bulletins by year and month. From the Visa Bulletin Toolbox, select a specific year/month and click "Get Bulletin" to retrieve them from the database. Current month and next month's visa bulletins, if available, have their own buttons for quick access. Our database contains all visa bulletins published by the Department of State from January 2002 to present, including both employment-based and family-sponsored categories.
Important update on the official visa bulletin system: Starting from October, 2015 the monthly visa bulletin will include two separate cutoff dates for each visa category. One cut-off date is for final actions (e.g. approval), and the other for filing applications. However, for filing I-485 applications, USCIS will determine whether the Filing Chart or the Final Action chart is to be used for the month. So you must check USCIS.gov for the exact cutoff dates before submitting your I-485 application.
