2 PERM LABOR CERTIFICATIONS You can obtain your permanent residency (Green Card) via a PERM Labor Certification application filed with the U.S. Department of Labor. It is a 3 stage process that requires a U.S. employer to sponsor you for prospective full-time employment. 2

3 PERM LABOR CERTIFICATIONS Stage 1 requires the U.S. employer to request a Prevailing Wage to determine the minimum salary that must be paid for the sponsored position. Stage 1 requires the U.S. employer to advertise for the sponsored position in either 3 or 6 locations. 3

4 PERM LABOR CERTIFICATIONS Stage 2 requires the Employer prove to the USCIS that it could have paid the Prevailing Wage from the date the case was filed (Priority Date). Stage 2 requires the Employer to submit its corporate tax returns, audited financial statements or annual reports. 4

5 PERM LABOR CERTIFICATIONS Stage 2 requires the foreign applicant to prove he or she has the qualifications required for the sponsored position by submitting his or her academic degree(s), transcript(s), evaluation(s), translation(s) and/or proof of prior work experience. 5

6 PERM LABOR CERTIFICATIONS Stage 3 is done in the U.S. by filing an Adjustment of Status application if the person is in the United States at the time of filing and if he or she is eligible to adjust status OR Stage 3 is done at an American Consulate in your home country if you are ineligible to adjust status or you are not in the United States. 6

7 PERM LABOR CERTIFICATIONS Once you have obtained your lawful permanent resident status (Green Card) you are required to go to work for the Employer and the Employer is required to pay you the Prevailing Wage. You are required to be working for the Employer on a full-time basis. 7

8 PERM LABOR CERTIFICATIONS If you win your permanent residency then your spouse and minor children will also receive their permanent residency (Green Card). 5 years after you have been a Resident of the United States you may be eligible to apply for U.S. Citizenship. 8

9 PERM LABOR CERTIFICATIONS KEY POINTS: You do not have to be currently working for the Employer to file a PERM Labor Certification. You do not need to be in the U.S. to file a PERM Labor Certification. Do not self-sponsor. Have the sponsor’s financials reviewed before filing. 9

10 PERM LABOR CERTIFICATIONS You can be sponsored for any position you qualify for based on your academic degree(s) and/or prior work experience. Processing times will vary depending if you are in the EB-2 category (advanced degree) or EB-3 category (professional, skilled worker, or unskilled worker). 10

11 PERM LABOR CERTIFICATIONS You can file separate EB-2 and EB-3 PERM Labor Certifications. You can also file a separate Family-based petition although you have filed a PERM Labor Certification application. A corporate merger does not automatically nullify the PERM Labor Certification. 11
