AILA has confirmed with the State Department that all of this fiscal year’s immigrant visas have been used. This is normal in September. The US Fiscal Year ends on September 30.
USCIS will continue to process pending adjustment cases, and is able to submit visa number requests for all cases which are being finalized. The State Department will place requests in a “Pending Demand” file. Eligible cases which have been submitted to the State Department that are within the October cut-off dates will be automatically authorized effective October 1, 2013.
