Electronic Filing of H-2A and H-2B Labor Certification Applications Through the iCERT Visa Portal System
Document Number: 2012-23884
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-09-28
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is announcing the implementation of electronic filing for the submission of nonimmigrant temporary labor certification applications under the H-2A and H-2B visa programs through the Department of Labor's (Department) iCERT Visa Portal System (iCERT System) at http://icert.doleta.gov. This new electronic filing capacity will enhance the accessibility and quality of labor certification services, reduce the data collection and reporting burden on small employers, facilitate more streamlined business processes, and establish greater transparency in the Department's decisions. Employers or their authorized representatives will be able to submit H-2B applications electronically beginning on October 15, 2012, and H-2A applications beginning on December 10, 2012. In order to make this transition as smooth as possible, the Department will hold four webinar training sessions (two for filing in the H-2B program and two for filing in the H-2A program) to orient program users to electronic filing through the iCERT System. These sessions will be announced on the OFLC's Web site (http://www.foreignlaborcert.doleta. gov/) once dates are finalized. Employers or their authorized representatives choosing not to use this new filing option must continue to file their H-2A and H-2B applications with the Department using the traditional paper-based filing method.
