Visa Bulletin Predictions

In order to help you determine when your ‘Final Action Date’ may become current, we built predictive mathematical models.

Our F1, F2A, F2B, F3, F4 predictions for ‘all countries’ are mostly based on our analysis of the last 20 years.

We are currently working on predictions for Mexico, the Philippines, and F4-India.
