U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released
updated fiscal year (FY) 2023 frequently asked questions on
employment-based (EB) adjustment of status. The introduction to the
FAQs notes that the EB annual limit for FY 2023 will be higher than
was typical before the pandemic but lower than in FYs 2021 and
2022. USCIS reiterated that it is “dedicated to ensuring we
use as many available employment-based visas as possible in FY
2023,” which ends on September 30, 2023.

The FAQs note that the Department of State currently estimates
that the FY 2023 employment-based annual limit will be
approximately 200,000 due to unused family-based visa numbers from
FY 2022 being added to the employment-based limit for FY 2023.
