VISANOW Solution Simplifies the Green Card Application Process for Employers

Wednesday July 23, 2008

“Companies rely on international talent to remain competitive in the global environment, and hiring foreign nationals has become a critical internal process,” commented Robert Meltzer, VISANOW CEO. “VISANOW’s PERM management interface was designed to make it as easy as possible for employers to manage what can be a challenging task. By providing employers with transparency and direct access to information, our technology removes administrative complications and delivers a higher level of clarity for the application process.”

PERM is an electronic filing process designed by the U.S. Department of Labor and is the first step towards obtaining employment-based permanent residence. The typical employment-based green card process can be broken down into the following three filing stages:

1. The Program Electronic Review Management (PERM) Labor Certification and submission of FORM ETA 9089;

2. Form I-140 – an employment-based immigration petition; and

3. Form I-485 – the adjustment of status application for permanent residency (which ultimately results in the issuance of a green card).

The VISANOW web-based solution was designed to operate in conjunction with these stages and ease the transition for employers and foreign nationals applying for residency. The VISANOW case management interface visually outlines and organizes the PERM process for both corporate HR professionals and the applicants filing for permanent residency. The design of the interface separates each step of the process into easily identifiable stages. Each stage includes specific requirements that are tracked and updated in real-time through the online solution as criteria are fulfilled. The interface also features timelines that clearly mark recruitment and filing periods to ensure a timely and successful application is filed.

“Green cards play a crucial role in helping organizations secure the global talent they need,” said Meltzer. “Employers can create a recruiting advantage through their green card application process. A strategic approach to immigration helps employers keep their process moving forward and serves as a recruiting tool to provide a much-needed edge when attracting future employees.”
