I read that there is a plan to carry over thousands of unused green card numbers from the fiscal year that just ended. Any truth to this?


There is a bill that has been proposed in Congress to carry over about 90,000 unused immigrant visa numbers to the new fiscal year; however, at this point, it is merely a proposal. There is some bipartisan support for it in Congress, but, at this time, there is still little reason to believe it will even be brought up for a vote, let alone be passed into law. (07.Oct.2021)
