Hi, I have tried to find out but everytime I search I get this post so I’m going to ask here. Have they started to process the PERMs for January or are we still in Decembers?

Hi @John_Hamilton

The dates above are checked every day and updated every mid-might automatically.
So, whatever month and date you see above is always accurate and synced with official DOL data on daily basis.

FYI - the charts all seem messed up. Maybe a incorrect web source?

Ya…that’s because DOL services are down due to government shutdown.
