Immigration through employment

Businesses in the U.S. frequently want to hire specialized foreign workers. Even more often, small business owners and investors want to secure Immigration benefits in the U.S. for themselves. There are several employment based immigration visas available for businesses and investors. The USCIS puts these visas in categories such as EB-1, EB-2, EB-3, EB-4, and EB-5 Immigrant Visas.

In order to obtain an employment-based immigrant visa, one must have a job offer from a U.S. employer and must be qualified through education and experience for that job. The INA also requires that there must not be a qualified U.S. worker willing or able to take that job. Depends on whether a labor certification is required, the amount of time takes to complete this application can vary between a few months to a year.

Because these visas are subject to the visa quota system, timing is an important consideration. Even so, the U.S. issues at least 140,000 employment-based immigration visas every year.

PERM: Labor Certification for Employers

In order to bring workers into the United States, U.S. employers must first seek to obtain foreign labor certification with the Department of Labor or the USCIS. Also known as PERM, the labor certification process allows the U.S. Department of Labor to certify that the job cannot be filled by a U.S. worker. Most employment based immigration visa categories require labor certification before the application for a green card can be submitted.
