Employment-Based Immigration

Employment-based immigration visas can give people the right to work in the United States and, in some case, allow them to obtain green cards. Specific guidelines determine if a person qualifies for an employment-based immigration visa. For example, a person may qualify if the person is: someone with extraordinary ability in business, arts or sciences; a manager or an executive of a multinational business; an outstanding professor or researcher; someone with advanced degrees and performing work in the national interest; someone with a job offer and a bachelor degree or higher or work experience; a religious worker or minister whose services are required by their non-profit religious organization; an investor with substantial funds invested in the United States.

PERM Processing – Labor Certification: Some employment-based visa applications require the submission of a Program Electronic Review Management (PERM) application. With a PERM application, the employer applies to the United States Department of Labor on behalf of the employee for a certification that there are not enough qualified workers in the United States in the relevant job category. If a labor shortage is certified, the person can then obtain a visa.
