DOL Reminder on Electronic LCA for H1-B and E-3

As a reminder, as of January 4, 2006, for H-1B and H-1B1, employers must file the electronic labor condition application (LCA) for nonimmigrant workers, Form ETA 9035E, through the Department of Labor's LCA Online System at http://www.lca.doleta.gov/. The mail-in option is available only in limited circumstances. Please see 70 FR 72556 (Dec. 5, 2005) for more details.

As an added convenience to employers, DOL has also added the option of selecting E-3 as the 'Program Designation' on the online LCA application. Therefore, as of January 4, 2006, instead of mailing their applications to DOL's National Office, employers may electronically submit their E-3 LCAs through http://www.lca.doleta.gov/.

I hope you find this information useful,
Rachel Wittman Cox
Senior Policy Advisor
DOL - Division of Foreign Labor Certification
