Obtaining Proof of Filing of Labor Certification Application; seventh year H-1B

Obtaining Proof of Filing of Labor Certification Application

The following information was provided by DOL with respect to how to obtain documentation from a DOL Backlog Reduction Center that a labor certification application was filed more than 365 days ago:

“Procedure for requesting extension documentation: we ask that employers/attorneys provide a single request which includes: 1) the name of the employer, 2) the name of the alien, 3) the State in which the application was filed, 4) the approximate filing date, and 5) the State case number, if possible. We will obtain information regarding the priority date and then will write a letter to the employer/attorney confirming the priority date and stating that the application is still pending.”

AILA members report having more success with the Dallas Center when they make the request by fax and more success with the Philadelphia center when submitting by mail.
