U.S. Department of State Visa Bulletin
The visa bulletin of the US State Department shows backlogs in both the family and the employment-based categories. Most immigrant visas to the US are numerically limited both by preference category and by country of chargeability (which is, in most cases, one’s country of birth). Most immigrants are sponsored either by U.S. citizen or permanent resident relatives or, alternately, through their employment or investment in the United States.
