Labor Certification is the process of demonstrating to the Department of Labor and the USCIS that the applicant should receive an Immigrant Visa due to the fact that he or she is or will be employed in a geographical area where there are no US Citizens or legal residents qualified for or willing to work in a determined position. The categories of workers are:
- “Skilled workers” are persons whose job requires a minimum of 2 years training or work experience, not of a temporary or seasonal nature
- “Professionals” are persons whose job requires at least a U.S. baccalaureate degree or a foreign equivalent and are a member of the professions
- The “other workers” subcategory is for persons performing unskilled labor requiring less than 2 years training or experience, not of a temporary or seasonal nature.
