Perm-based EB-2 and EB-3 green cards are employment-based immigrant visas. It requires a U.S. employer sponsor and has a series of lengthy and complicated procedures. The initial step in a labor certification-based green card process is completing and filing the PERM labor certification. Applicants file with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

About PERM

PERM (Program Electronic Review Management) refers to the electronic labor certification system. Labor certification (not to be confused with the Labor Condition Application – LCA) is required when the U.S. employer wishes to hire the foreign worker on a permanent basis. To sum it up, the PERM process requires the employer petitioning for a foreign worker to perform myriad recruitment activities to test the labor market before filing an application. If, during the recruitment process, the employer finds that there is not a sufficient number of willing, qualified, or able applicants, whether U.S. citizens or permanent residents, then the employer can submit a PERM labor certification application.
