Our PERM Process Flow Chart illustrates the steps to obtain a Green Card in the U.S. via the EB-3 approach, where the Alien can be classified as a Professional, Skilled, or Other.
This PERM Process Flow Chart can be a useful reference guide, especially if used in conjunction with the advice of a good immigration attorney.
The best approach for legal advice is to retain an attorney, the American Immigration Lawyers Associatio. (AILA) is an excellent place to look.
You should also count on the many sites and resources the U. S. Government has made available to you, here’s a small list:
- Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Immigration Page
- U. S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services
- Foreign Labor Certification – Employment & Training Administration
- Permanent Labor Certification
- iCERT Portal
- LCA Online System
Our PERM Process Flow Chart shows how, if you have a willing Employer to sponsor you, you may complete both the PERM approval by Dept. of Labor, and the subsequent I-140 Petition can be approved by USCIS.
Be advised, just because a PERM Labor Certification has been approved by DOL, doesn’t mean USCIS will approve the I-140 Petition. There are two separate processes, and the paperwork for the I-140 actually references information that was submitted in the 9089. Have the same person fill them out if possible so no details are missed, and no procedural confusion arises.
During the recruitment phase, the Attorney or Employer can choose PERM-Ads.com to price, proof, place and provide tear sheets and other related follow-up. Our immigration advertising agency will forward all tear sheets, ad proofs, broadcast contracts, MP3’s and related documentation to the Attorney for their use in filing the recruitment report in the ETA Form 9089.
