CASE: EB-3 I-140 Petition
EMPLOYER: Hydraulic Pumps and Motors Manufacturing Company in WV
BENEFICIARY: Kenyan Sales Manager in Kenya

 

Our client is from Kenya, who used to work in the U.S. on his H-1B status. His former employer was willing to do an immigration petition for him, third-preference. Our client has a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree and has worked for the current employer as a Sales Manager. After talking to our client, our firm concluded that his employer can petition him as a Sales Manager. Based on our client’s educational, professional and working backgrounds, our office determined that he is clearly eligible for EB-3 classification.

Prior to filing PERM, our firm prepared the prevailing wage request, job order, advertisements, internal job posting, recruitment report, and all other steps which are important pre-PERM filing. Take note that PERM could be filed at least 60 days from the job posting date or 30 days from the last ad. On February 5, 2016, the prevailing wage request was filed.  After we obtained Prevailing Wage determination, our office filed the job order on July 6, 2016.  On September 27, 2016, we promptly filed PERM.  Eventually, on November 22, 2016, the PERM Labor Certification was approved – an EB3 position for the Kenyan beneficiary.

We then proceeded with the I-140 Petition filing. We submitted the “ability to pay” letter for the I-140 petition application. We included the job offer letter, ability to pay letter, and other necessary supporting documents. The I-140 petition was filed on December 9, 2016 via premium processing service. However, the USCIS issued Request for Evidence (RFE) on December 21, 2016 and request our client to submit documents regarding Beneficiary’s special skills for the proposed job position and employer’s ability to pay proffered wage. Our office prepared and filed Response to RFE to USCIS on January 3, 2017.

Eventually, on January 5, 2017, the I-140 EB-3 Petition for our Kenyan client was approved. Now, our client can file his immigrant visa application in Kenya once his priority date becomes current.
