EB-3 Green Card
STEP BY STEP
- You need to find an employer interested in hiring you and willing to petition for you or have a job offer already.
- When you find and employer this needs to confirm what salary or wages it should pay given the local job market by submitting a prevailing wage request to the Department of Labor (DOL). The DOL will respond by naming a salary or wage amount called a prevailing wage determination (PWD).
- Your employer needs to advertise for the job, recruits potential candidates, conducts interviews, and ultimately determines that no U.S. workers are qualified, willing, and available to take the job you’ve been offered. Employer advertising and recruitment in preparation for the labor certification request will take two months and 30 days of cooling period.
- Your employer completes a request for labor certification and sends it to DOL. The DOL’s approval means it’s confirming that no U.S. workers were available for the job and that you and your employer can go ahead with the process of applying for your green card. There’s an exception to this requirement: A few types of jobs don’t require labor certification, because they’re on the Schedule A list of workers that are in short supply within the United States. Professional nurses and physical therapists have been on the Schedule A list for years. After your employer files the request for labor certification, DOL will ordinarily take three to six months to issue a decision
- Your employer submits a visa petition on your behalf using the I-140 for to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). After your employer submits a petition (Form I-140) to USCIS, will likely take between three and eight months to issue of decision in regular process, but you employer have the option to submits under premium processing and the time will be reduce to only two weeks
- After the I-140 petition is approved, you wait until a visa is available, based on the date the labor certification application was filed (your priority date). The underlying issue here is that only a limited number of EB-3 visas are issued each year; a 28.6% of the total 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas made available annually, plus any unused Employment First and Second Preference visas. Of these, only 10,000 are allotted to unskilled workers. .
- After USCIS issues its approval of the I-140 petition, check on what priority dates are becoming current by looking at the State Department’s Visa Bulletin The date shown on the chart in your category (3rd preference) reflects the priority dates of people finally receiving visas.
- You can track your priority date’s progress by following the State Department’ VISA BULLETIN. Skilled and professional workers must look under “3rd” on the Employment-Based visa table. Unskilled workers must look at the “Other Workers” row. Also check the columns to see if your home country is separately named, which happens when the per-country limit is reached.
- When your priority date becomes current, you submit with the representation of a US immigration attorney your DS-260 application for an immigrant visa if you are outside the U.S. or an I-485 for USCIS interview if you’re legally in the U.S. and eligible to use the procedure known as adjustment of status
- You attend an interview at a S. consulate where your immigrant visa EW-3 may be approved. local USCIS office, where your green card may be approved.
