PERM Labor Certification

Employment-Based Immigration Attorney in Northern Virginia

Prior to being granted entrance into the United States with an employment visa, you will need to undergo the labor certification process through the Program Electronic Review Management (PERM) system. You and your employer will both be a part of this process and working with a trusted Northern Virginia immigration attorney from our firm can provide you with the answers you need to get started on obtaining labor certification. At our firm, we have years of experience in handling a variety of immigration-related cases, and we may be able to help you as well.

For employers, obtaining this certification is clarifying that the foreign national is the only person able to fill the position and that no equally qualified United States citizen is being ousted a position by the foreign national. The first step that employers will need to embark on is submitting a request for wage determination from the United States Department of Labor. In the request, the job description, requirements and location of the company will need to be addressed. As long as there are no potential applicants in the United States for the position, the employer can submit a PERM application (Form ETA-9089.) Once the form is approved, the employer will have 180 to submit a visa petition for a new employee to enter and work within the United States.
