EB-3 Based on PERM

EB-3 petitions are for individuals who are professionals (with bachelor’s degrees), skilled workers, or unskilled workers. The first step is the PERM process, which includes a minimum wage for the employee and extensive recruiting to determine that no U.S. worker is available for the position. Once the Department of Labor issues a labor certification at the end of that process, employers can sponsor these employees for permanent residence by filing Form I-140. Most immigrants can apply for permanent residence (green card) immediately after I-140 approval, but there are significant backlogs for immigrants from China, India, and the Philippines. There are also backlogs for immigrants from other countries.

Individuals with approved I-140s can apply for extensions of H-1B status until they are able to obtain a green card. This rule allows employees from China, India, and the Philippines to remain in the United States while waiting for their green cards.

MT Law has significant experience with I-140 petitions, and regularly provides innovative solutions to companies seeking to move and retain talent in the United States while the employees wait for green cards.
