November 2018 Visa Bulletin for Employment Based Green Cards

The Department of State has posted the visa bulletin for November 2018.

EB-1 Priority Workers final action date is still April 1, 2017 for all nationals, except those born in India and China who now have a cutoff date of June 1, 2016. EB-2 and EB-3 is current (no backlog) for all nationals, except those born in India who  have a cutoff date of March 26, 2009 (EB-2) and January 1, 2009 (EB-3) AND those born in China who now have a cutoff date of May 15, 2015 (EB-2) and June 15, 2015 (EB-3).

However, the USCIS has advised that it will accept adjustment of status applications in November for family-based petitions and employment-based petitions for those with priority dates before the listed cutoff date in the filing dates chart.
