The United States Department of State has published the visa bulletin for July, 2023. This guide reports on the availability of immigrant and nonimmigrant visas for individuals from various countries and categories.

The monthly report is used by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) to evaluate eligibility. If applications exceed the quota, a date will be released regarding eligibility based on the priority date of the petition.

Immigrant visas are categorized based on countries of origin and various categories such as immediate family visas, employment preference-based visas, diversity visas, and more.

Priority dates in the visa bulletin are determined on visa availability and a quota system established by the United States Immigration and Nationality Act.
