What Else Goes Into Employment-Based Immigration?
Labor Market Information Pilot Program
The Immigration Act of 1990 allows the DOL to create a pilot program called Labor Market Information, which will identify ten job categories that are experiencing labor shortages.
If you want to apply for an immigrant visa based on employment in the United States, you need to get an approved immigrant visa petition from the USCIS.
The amount of time it takes for your petition to be processed varies depending on the service center handling it. On average, it takes about six months. However, you do have the option to expedite the process by using the premium processing service for an extra fee. This could get your petition processed within 15 calendar days.
