The State Department has confirmed that visa numbers for employment-based categories have been exhausted for this fiscal year, ending 9/30/2013.

 

USCIS will continue to process pending employment-based AOS (I-485) cases, but cannot approve them until visa numbers are available after October 1, 2013. USCIS will submit visa number (GC) requests for all cases which are being finalized. These cases that remain current in October will be approved (allotted visa numbers) beginning October 1, 2013.
