September Visa Bulletin: End of the year
September 2018 is the last month of the U.S. Government Fiscal Year. U.S. immigration agencies are concerned about not going over the annual numerical limits for each family preferences. So this September, like many in prior years, we mostly saw regressions or limited/no advancement.

- F1: Apr 8, 2011; -5 weeks.
- F2A: Jul 22, 2016; No Movement.
