Work Visas And Labor Certification
In today’s global society, a diverse and talented workforce is essential for meeting the demands of the marketplace. Business needs often require leveraging international resources. And for certain traders or investors, conducting business on U.S. soil may be essential for success.
Immigration law provides numerous visa options for work-related travel or temporary residence in the United States. Major categories include:
- H-1B visas for specialty occupations
- L-1 visas for intracompany transferees
- E-1 and E-2 visas for international traders or investors from certain treaty countries
- TN visas under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for qualifying nationals of Canada and Mexico with advanced degrees
- B-1 visas for temporary business visitors
Each type of visa has unique requirements and features. At the Law Offices of George Giosmas, we can help you make strategic, well-informed decisions in pursuing work-related visas.

Labor Certification (PERM) For Employment-Based Immigration
Certain categories of workers who are seeking an employment-based green card must first undergo the challenging process of labor certification. This critical step is intended to demonstrate that the offer of permanent employment is bona fide. It also tests whether any qualified American workers are available to fill the position. The Department of Labor oversees the process through the PERM (Program Electronic Review Management) system.
For many prospective immigrants and their sponsors, labor certification is the most daunting step in the petition process. Our firm can provide the professional guidance you need to lay the groundwork for success.
